The traditional mid-season Football South Burnett President’s Cup games – which pit the ladder leaders against each other – were played on Friday night in Kingaroy.

The Cup matches were played in chilly conditions under lights at Tom Alford Oval before a small crowd.

Hosts Kingaroy Senior Soccer had three teams in the running for glory, and brought home the two trophies.

In the men’s competition, Kingaroy Islanders downed Kingaroy Easts 3-1 in the local derby.

The women’s cup was a closer contest, with a keenly fought game between Kingaroy Wests and the Nanango Panthers.

Wests eventually came out on top, 2-1.

Games from U6s through to Cadets were played across seven fields.
