Fun returns to reserve
TOUCH football made a return to the Biggenden sporting calendar on Tuesday, after 15 years.
Many agreed it was great to see the lights on at the sports reserve.
Big Eng Barracudas won the opening game 5-4 over Coalstoun Lakes team, Salted Peanuts, while Sam’s team had a 12-2 runaway win over Bits and Pieces.
Comments from the sideline included “Who talked me into this rubbish”, “Give me my water bottle before I die”, “You’ve got to run”, “But I don’t want to run”, “It was a good idea at the time but I think I am going to die” and “Where’s the defibrillator?”
Biggenden Apex Club made a donation to get the club back up and running.
Biggenden Touch Football Association’s Jess Bargenquast said the club was grateful for the support from this community group.
“This has gone to purchasing much needed equipment, and the basic costs involved with starting up a club,” Bargenquast said.
Biggenden Touch Football will also hold inter-town competitions.
TEAM SPIRIT: Members of the Salted Peanuts team Russell Thompson, Lisa Scholl, Michelle and Andrew Seabrook are happy to see touch football has returned to Biggenden.
