DOWN TO THE WIRE: Watch the Feet win Bundy Cup

TOUCH: It was a win two years in the making for Watch the Feet in the Bundaberg Cup.

After being beaten by Rockhampton in the final two years ago the Brisbane based side had the chance to exact a little bit of revenge.

In a dramatic final they did just that.

The side started well leading 2-1 at half time before Rockhampton fought back.

The Redbacks scored early in the second half and looked likely to win in normal time as Watch The Feet bravely held on in defence to take the game to extra time.

The Brisbane side then took its chance when it counted, finding a free player with a long pass in attack to win its second straight Bundaberg Cup.

"We were just happy to be there (in extra time), if we got it we got it,” Watch the Feet player Michael Rasmussen said.

"We just had to run, they've got a team full of young players who like to run.”

The side won after losing to Rockhampton in the pool games.

"It was a big loss yesterday (Saturday) against them but mental toughness helped us through that one,” Rasmussen said.

In a perfect weekend they also took out the mixed open competition as well.

Rockhampton were disappointed to lose after being unbeaten heading into the final.

They defeated Bundaberg 12-0 in the semi-finals.

"At the start we were just a bit pedantic and went away from our plan,” Rocky player Jack Hughes said.

"We sort of got back to it in the second half but it wasn't enough.

"They were just too good at the end of the day.”

In other results, Our Uniforms Match won the men's social masters with Mixed Nuts winning the mixed social masters.

Finally, Gympie n mates took out under-12, Toowoomba won U14 with Bundy's U16 girls taking out U14/16 over Gympie's girls.

The cup is back next year.
