Update 8.40pm

Nanango Panther make it three in a row after beating Barambah, 3-1.

The game was won in the first half with a goalless second half of soccer.

Panthers dominated the first half with a penalty inside the box giving Barambah the only goal in the first half.

Update

Nothing could separate Nanango and Wests womens' teams in the grand final in the first 90 minutes.

The game remained scoreless for the 90 minutes and it was a goal five minutes in extra time that was to decide the champions.

Nanango kept the pressure on for much of the 20 minutes of extra time but Wests defence was up to the challenge.

But Wests struggled to make the opportunities at the other end.

Earlier in the day Gunners beat Panthers in the second division grand final, 2-1

Original

GUNNERS win the second division grand final with a goal midway through the second half, sealing it for the visitors, 2-1

Both teams went to the main break with one goal each, but it was the Gunners who scored the winning goal 21 minutes in the second half.

Nanango kept pushing but were unable to convert in the closing stages of the match.  One shot at goal from Nanango appeared to have crossed the line late in the second half, but was not awarded.

The women's grand final kicked off at 4pm and the men's first division is starting at 7pm.
