STRIPEY STALEMATE: Bingera draw to the Jets
FOOTBALL: It's the two points that could come back to haunt Bingera later this year in the Wide Bay League.
In one of its worst performances of the season the side was held to a 0-0 draw against the KSS Jets at Martens Oval on Saturday.
Bingera, despite three clear-cut chances in the second half, was not able to score as the Jets' defence held strong.
"We just didn't play well and it was a poor team performance... we couldn't put five passes together," Bingera coach Brett Kitching said.
"The KSS Jets were young and enthusiastic and credit to them they got the better of us in the first half."
Kitching conceded the side did not mentally focus and had turned its attention at times to the two other games this week against Bargara in the NewsMail Cup and Brothers Aston Villa in the league.
"We didn't turn up mentally and that is not like us," he said.
"It's not panic stations but it was an opportunity lost for us to gain a full three points."
The focus now is fully on Bargara for tonight's chance to make the final in the cup.
"They have been in really good form recently so we need to be wary," Kitching said.
"We are prepared, though, to play for a full 90 or 120 minutes if needed."
Bargara warmed up for the semi-final contest with a 7-3 win over Sunbury.
It could have been a larger victory, though, if the side had not conceded two own goals down in Maryborough.
"It was just bad luck as our players tried to clear the ball off the line," Bargara coach Allan Davison said.
"Everyone did their jobs well and to put seven goals past a top-four team was a really impressive effort.
"We're getting more confident week by week that we belong in this league."
He said they would almost be at full strength for the match against Bingera.
In other matches to finish round 11, The Waves won 6-0 against the United Park Eagles and Brothers Aston Villa beat Doon Villa 2-1.
A hat-trick to The Waves striker Alex Keen has put the side at the top of the ladder.
The Waves will face Brothers Aston Villa in the other semi-final of the NewsMail Cup tonight.
