Chinchilla News - - SPORT -

FOOT­BALL: The Chin­chilla Cougars Un­der-16s were crowned Cham­pi­ons of the Chal­lenge Cup on Satur­day after beat­ing Kin­garoy 2–1.

The Cougars fin­ished top of the pack in a com­pe­ti­tion that in­cluded some very strong sides.

Dalby, Baramba and two sides from Kin­garoy tried to stop the Cougars side that went through the com­pe­ti­tion un­beaten.

“The fin­ish to the game was not good for my nerves but I think it was the right re­sult on the bal­ance of play,” coach Tim Tay­lor said.

“We con­trolled large por­tions of the game and apart from the penalty, our goal­keeper was vir­tu­ally a spec­ta­tor.

“We have had an amaz­ing sea­son win­ning the league and now be­ing crowned Chal­lenge Cup Cham­pi­ons is the ic­ing on the cake.

“We have a spe­cial bunch of kids in this side that have worked ex­tremely hard for each other.

“To­day was a fan­tas­tic end to a per­fect sea­son.”
