Young Red Ants score in Murgon

WITH less than one minute on the clock the Kingaroy Red Ants scored in the under-12 grand final to win over the Murgon Mustangs at the domestic violence awareness round.

Captain of the side Thomas Frohloff was proud of the fight his team showed to score the win.

"The team defence was really good as well as our attack and I think that is what made us win today,” he said.

"It feels good to win and we are thankful to all the parents who came to support us.”

While Thomas said the carnival format of playing more than five games was exhausting coach Sonie Crumpton said it was beneficial for the boys.

"These full days are really good for the guys,” Crumpton said.

"We swapped the positions around today to give everyone an opportunity and then in the last game we put our best team forward and it was well deserved of all the players.

"They came together as a team and improved throughout the day.”

Murgon Mustangs coach Brett Pidgeon said it was a great effort by his team on their home ground.

"There was a lot of younger boys who haven't played a lot of football and they really stood up today,” he said.

"They did well to get into the grand final. They played their best and you can't ask anything more than that.”
