Stripeys go back-to-back
DON'T underestimate the motivation of Bingera to win football competitions.
The side continued its domination of Football Bundaberg by winning its second-straight Division 1 Knockout Cup after a 4-1 win over the United Park Eagles on Tuesday night.
The Stripeys scored two goals in the final 25 minutes to seal the title after leading 1-0 at half-time.
The side is now unbeaten in its past 40 matches.
They have also won the past six titles on offer to sides in both Wide Bay and Bundaberg competitions.
"It wasn't a comfortable win, that was for sure,” Bingera captain Madelyn McCracken said.
"We got a bit complacent at 2-0 up and they got one back against us.
"We then had to do something so it was good to wrap up the game late on.”
McCracken scored two goals, the first and last, to win the trophy.
"I've doubled my season tally from last year,” she said.
"It's more about the team and everyone contributing.”
McCracken said the hunger in the side was what would help them chase more glory and wins in the future.
"We're still chasing the perfect game and the perfect goal,” she said.
"We also talk about how much we want it, we don't want to lose.”
The team also wanted to win for Kate Ennett, who headed overseas yesterday to pursue a football scholarship in the US.
"We didn't want to make the game about her because we know she wouldn't have liked it that way,” she said.
"It was good to send her off with a cup win.”
The side will now prepare for the upcoming Wide Bay League finals. They're taking on UPE again this Saturday.
In the other game last night, The Waves took out the Division 2 Knockout Cup with an 8-0 win over the United Park Eagles.
The men's second and third division cup finals were held last night.
