Tor­na­does storm home in sod­den ‘ Swamp Bowl’

Townsville Bulletin - - Sports - by Antony Ste­wart

Ty­phoons led 16-14 at half­time and still had their noses in front 24-22 in the shad­ows of full­time.

But, just as it ap­peared their bash and barge ap­proach would pay off, White un­leashed two of his three touch­down passes for the af t er­noon and wide r eceivers Kyle Reynolds and Kim Scan­lon were only too happy to ac­cept.

‘‘ Our team unity was what brought it home, ev­ery­one work­ing to­gether and mak­ing ad­just­ments,’’ White said. White paid tribute to his side’s de­fence as the Ty­phoons looked to use sheer size and power to bat­ter their way to tri­umph.

‘ ‘ T h e y d e f i n i t e l y o u t - mus­cled us in size, but at the end of the game I think skill and agility and the pass­ing game helped us out,’’ White said. Townsville Gridiron Cham­pi­onship II is set down for an Au­gust kick-off, with hopes of adding more sides to the three that played in Amer­i­can Foot­ball’s 2011 re­birth in the city.
