Match Preview | Golden Square regained its place as the Bendigo Bank Bendigo FNL’s top dog as it fought for a one-goal win against Sandhurst in the senior footy grand final.
Thousands of fans packed Queen Elizabeth Oval for what was the 10th showdown between the great rivals for the Bendigo Advertiser premiership cup.
In a match where momentum swung wildly, especially in the final quarter it was the Christian Carter-coached Golden Square which held its nerve to win 71-65.
As he reflected on joining an elite group as a premiership player, captain, and now coach, Christian Carter declared the team of ’23 was capable of a lot more success.
“I believe this group has the hunger and quality to string more premierships together.”
Carter was a key player in the club’s golden era of 2009 to ’13 when it won five consecutive premierships.
The victorious coach said it was a mixture of excitement and relief on capturing the club’s 18th senior premiership.
