Penalties secure ladies' win
FOOTBALL: The only game to go into extra time on Saturday, the Football Stanthorpe ladies' final between Ballandean and United was close.
While each point secured through hand-ball penalties, Ballandean president and ladies coach Neil Newman said he was still thrilled with the 2-1 win.
Mr Newman said Jacynta Dachs was Ballandean's standout player.
"She did a lot of work and defended really well throughout the game,” Mr Newman said.
Both of Ballandean's penalty goals were scored by Sarah Day.
United president and ladies' coach Brian Westerhout said despite the loss, the game showed a strong effort from his team.
"It thought it was the best game they've (the ladies) played in probably over a year,” Westerhout said.
"It was a fantastic game. It's a shame it was decided on a penalty, but Ballandean played an awesome game.”
He said just getting to the finals was a good achievement.
"Our girls worked their guts out all year training with a fantastic attitude,” he said.
