So close – Stanthorpe United have gone down in a thriller in the Toowoomba Football Premier League Men’s grand final at Toowoomba on Sunday afternoon.
Locked at Nil-all at half-time, one-all at full-time and two-all after 30 minutes of extra-time it took a penalty-shoot-out to finally give defending premiers Willowburn the title against the never say- die newcomers.
The team that was never originally in the competition and were only added after the Stanthorpe competition didn’t go ahead because of Covid travelling thousands of kilometres throughout the regular season, were in the match the whole way and with five-minutes of extra-time left were up 2-1 and looking destined to win. However Willowburn equalized with 30 seconds on the clock to stay in the game before dominating the penalty shoot-out.
Full match report to come.
