Blowies keen to ce­ment top place

TOUCH FOOT­BALL

Kalgoorlie Miner - - SPORT -

As the qual­i­fy­ing se­ries winds down, Blowies are hit­ting their very best form in Gold­fields A-grade touch foot­ball.

With three rounds to go, they have fi­nally usurped peren­nial favourites NVUS for the first time this sea­son at the top of the pile af­ter a big 5-1 win against their ri­vals last Satur­day.

And they will be odds-on favourites go­ing into tonight’s 6pm out­ing against United at Gold­fields Oa­sis play­ing fields, with cel­lard­wellers United yet to win this sea­son.

United will, how­ever, be look­ing to con­tinue the mo­men­tum of a strong per­for­mance last week against Ne­sian, when they nar­rowly suc­cumbed 4-3.

NVUS will have to bounce back against Ne­sian at 5pm to keep the heat on Blowies.

Tap n Gap B will be out to main­tain their two-game ad­van­tage at the top of B-grade, and should not be too hard-pressed against last­placed Ne­sian Mys­tix, while a con­test with Blowies B gives Ti­tans an op­por­tu­nity to move within a game of Deuces, who have the bye.
