Perfection on line for Bingera

FOOTBALL: There was plenty of relief for Bingera's Madelyn McCracken on Thursday morning.

The captain got the news she was hoping for after suffering concussion and a jaw injury almost two weeks ago in the sides 4-2 win over the United Warriors.

"I got clearance to play the grand final,” she said.

"I haven't been able to do much in the first week but got through training on Wednesday night.

"We're all fired up ready to go.”

McCracken's inclusion boosts a side that will play the Warriors in today's women's Wide Bay League decider.

Bingera now has the leading scorer in the competition back and the side is at full strength.

The side is not underestimating the Warriors.

"They've got fast key attackers, so we need to shut them down,” McCracken said.

"We just need to keep our mental state and show perseverance.

"The experience should come through.”

The side is also aiming for an unbeaten season.

They remain without a loss in their past 43 matches.

"Last year we wanted to better ourselves, now we have that chance if we can win,” McCracken said.

Today's final starts at 5pm.
