The successful Joeys team from Murgon which won the Cadets Grand Final at the Kingaroy Junior Soccer Carnival on Sunday

August 30, 2019

The crowds of people in Kingaroy last weekend weren’t all here just for BaconFest, there was also a huge junior soccer carnival under way which attracted teams from across southern Queensland.

The Mini-Roos Carnival on Sunday, hosted by the Kingaroy Junior Football Club, featured games for Under 6/7s, Under 8/9s, Under 1o/11s, Under 12/13s and Cadets.

Teams came from across the South Burnett as well as Chinchilla, Dalby, Gatton, Highfields and Buderim.

The younger grades were playing for fun, but the Under 12s/13s and Cadets were competing for cash team prizes: $200 for first place and $100 for runners-up.

South Burnett teams made it to the finals in both grades but it was the Murgon-based Joeys which stole the show with a dramatic win against Highfields in the closely fought Cadets Grand Final.

At full-time, Joeys and Highfields were locked at three all.

But the local team pulled away in extra time, taking the game 5-3.

Joeys’ goals were kicked by Austin Kelly – who scored a hat-trick – Liam Robe and Reagon Goschnick.

Sponsors for the junior soccer carnival were Blacks Electrical, CTC Mechanical, G Crumpton & Sons and Swickers Kingaroy.
