TOUCH FOOTBALL

RAY White and Whit­sun­day Food Ser­vice took out their re­spec­tive grand fi­nals on Mon­day night as the Whit­sun­day Touch As­so­ci­a­tion’s (WTA) first sea­son drew to a close.

Af­ter a run of grand fi­nal losses to Fo­cus on Us in re­cent times Ray White got the bet­ter of their old ri­vals with an ex­cit­ing 6-3 win.

Fo­cus on Us opened the scor­ing but Ray White hit back through tries to vet­eran Peter Chen­gody and his son Justin.

Ray White pushed the lead to three and hung on in the sec­ond half to score a mem­o­rable 6-3 win in the sea­son de­cider.

In B grade Whit­sun­day Food con­tin­ued their stel­lar sea­son with a solid 5-3 win over Eclipse.

A strong start helped Whit­sun­day Food build an early lead and they were able to hold on de­spite a vastly-im­proved sec­ond half from Eclipse.

All teams will en­joy a brief off-sea­son be­fore the com­pe­ti­tion kicks off again in three weeks time.
