Touch play­ers ex­cel at car­ni­val

Central and North Burnett Times - - JUNIOR SPORT -

A GROUP of touch foot­ball play­ers have re­turned from the Queens­land All Schools Touch Car­ni­val with stronger skills.

“It was great to get away from Gayn­dah for a few days and play against some hot mixed teams,” Hay­din Else­bach said.

“In some of the games where we went down we were very close and most of them we should have won.”

Bur­nett State Col­lege open mixed touch team played the tour­na­ment in Bris­bane last week.

They started the car­ni­val off with a 5–2 loss on Thurs­day morn­ing against Gympie SHS.

They soon bounced back and beat Sun­shine Coast Christian Col­lege 13–1; they fin­ished off the first day of com­pe­ti­tion with a 6–3 win against Pine Rivers.

On Fri­day they bat­tled against Browns Plains (who fin­ished on top of the pool) and went down 4–0 and then they played against Bri­bie Is­land and came away with another vic­tory (5–3).

The Satur­day started with a tough match against Run­corn, where they nar­rowly lost in the last play of the game 4–5.

Their last game of the tour­na­ment was a solid vic­tory against Bray Park SHS 6–4.

Over­all, they fin­ished in third spot in their pool, with Browns Plains and Gympie pro­gress­ing to the Sun­day com­pe­ti­tion.

The team was made up of Brittany Cross, Megan Ost­wald, Kaitlyn Ni­co­letti, Lucy Thomp­son, Mikaela Ross, Tea­gan Bechly, Hay­din Else­bach, Matt Schif­fke, Josh Robert­son, James Dun­can, Karl Op­per­man, Ben Kenny and Kate O’Brien.
