The Terry Kennedy Cup was held on Sunday afternoon with Biloela Valley Strikers capturing the hearts of many.

The team faced of against Emerald in an intense semi-final match which saw the sides locked after the full time hooter.

Due to one of the sides needing to progress to the grand final a semi-final penalty shootout was scheduled and both teams did extremely well.

Bilo finished by scoring all of their penalties and Emerald found the net for their first five penalties but a terrific save by Bilo’s keeper gave the Banana Shire team the victory.

In the grand final against Central FC, Bilo went down 2-0 early but fought back hard and scored deep into the second half to make the score 2-1.

But it wasn’t to be for the strikers who finished the contest as proud runners up.
