BINGERA'S charge up the Three Cities League ladder continued with a gritty 3-1 won over Diggers at the weekend.
After starting the season with a draw and two losses, Bingera was in danger of dropping off the pace of the early leaders and the men in black and white could have missed a chance at the finals.
But three-consecutive wins has seen Bingera keep in close contact with the front runners.
And it's one of the leaders Bingera play in the coming round.
Brothers Aston Villa are Bingera's next opponent and the Tim Lunnon-coached team will be full of confidence after beating United Warriors 4-1, despite putting in a 45-minute performance.
Leading 4-0 at the break thanks to goals from Lachlan Scarborough, Blake O'Brien, Kyle Taylor and Jaryd Bennier, Villa could have piled on a massive score but relaxed knowing the three points were in the bag.
Lunnon was impressed with the first-half performance but was still asking his players for a 90-minute performance.
In Hervey Bay Across the Waves' skipper Matt Martin scored his team's goals in a 2-0 defeat of KSS Jets.
Too keep up with United Park Eagles FC, which had a 3-3 draw with Doon Villa at the weekend, ATW needed the win on enemy territory and Martin delivered.
KSS Jets sit in the middle of the ladder and ATW was expected to win by a bigger margin, but on a rough surface the players were unable to get good touch on the ball and Martin said the game would not have been enjoyable to watch.
"We were a disappointed with the score line. There was not much ball control and there was no flow in the game," Martin said.
"I don't know what it was like to watch but it was bloody frustrating to play."
In the other games, Alloway went down 1-0 to Tinana and Fraser Flames belted Sunbury 4-1.
