A special mention also goes to Harry Showers who came ready to play but a niggling injury prevented him from getting on the park, however, he cheered on his teammates all game long.
Lachy MacGowan went close to scoring a winner in the dying minute of the last half but he couldn’t beat Wangaratta’s goalkeeper in a one-on-one.
With the match going to penalties Zane Vardanega and Charlie Benson were the two Myrtleford players to hold their nerve in front of goal while George Whitford pulled off three crucial saves.
Coach Rob Caponecchia said the Cup win was a fantastic reward for his players after a great season.
“It was a nail biting game that’s for sure,” he said.
“You can imagine how nervous and excited 16 little kids were ahead of the game, they all just wanted to win what they had been aiming for all season.
“They did a great job up to halftime and with the way the game was playing out we just told them the team that makes the least number of mistakes will win.
“The kids played their hearts out in the second half, if the ball managed to get into Wang’s half it was soon forced back up the ground.
“They also showed off some technical passing and combinations that would make any coach proud.
“To win in a penalty shootout and take some silverware back to the club was a big thrill for all the kids.”
