FOOTBALL: Nanango Panthers women's team continued their season of dominance defeating Barambah United 4-0 to claim the Football South Burnett premiership on Saturday.

Panthers mid-fielder Jacqui Downie said it was a tough game against great competitors.

"We do love playing Barambah,” she said.

"They have always given us a tussle all season.”

Nanango has been undefeated all season and Downie said the whole team was pleased with their performance in the grand final.

The Panthers and United were both playing a few team members down due to various circumstances, which Downie said created some challenges.

"Unfortunately they were missing one of their strong backs because she got a red card last week, which helped us, and we were missing one of our good forwards due to injury,” Downie said.

"We put some really good through balls together and passes to feed and it was really good to watch.”

Downie credited her team's ability to keep the opposition from scoring to the Panthers' strong defensive line.

"Our back line has always been strong, always strong,” she said.
