Red Ants coach proud of his team's season

THE Kingaroy Red Ants may not have got the result they were chasing in the weekend's grand final but coach Darren Geiger said the team members could hold their heads high and be proud of what they have achieved this season.

The Red Ants were the only team to win against the Nanango Stags this season and were undefeated at their home ground.

Geiger said the round two win against Stags on the club's Pink Day for a Cure was one of the highlights of the season.

"It was a fantastic game of footy to watch and it was special to win on a day that means so much to the club," he said.

The Stags' strong defence on Saturday kept the Red Ants from getting on the scoreboard and Geiger credited Nanango's performance.

"I don't think anyone would've scored against them with that defensive effort," he said.

"I would like to congratulate Nanango on their season. They are one of the better sides I have seen out here."

The Red Ants are a young side and Geiger said the team has a lot of potential.

"I think the majority of them will be back again next year," he said.

"They are a bit wounded by what happened.

"To improve, we have got to get better defensively."
