TOUCH FOOT­BALL: A well-at­tended sea­son of so­cial touch foot­ball cul­mi­nated in four grand-fi­nal games on Mon­day night, with the women’s and men’s teams from both the A-grade and B-grade hit­ting the fields.

Fi­nal­ists in the B-grade were up first, the ladies of Rack At­tack and Strug­glers go­ing head to head, while the Pink Pan­thers and Bush Turkeys played for the Men’s B ti­tle.

Fin­ish­ing with a score of 7–2, the Pink Pan­thers emerged vic­to­ri­ous over the Turkeys.

Con­sis­tent de­fence from both teams on the women’s field kept scores level for most of the game, but Rack At­tack was able to push ahead in a 4–2 win.

Wii Not Fit and Hot To Touch played a fast-paced and high-scor­ing game, with the lat­ter dom­i­nat­ing the field in both at­tack and de­fence.

Only let­ting their ri­vals past the line for one try, Hot To Touch set fire to the field, win­ning their A-grade match 10–1.

The last match of the fi­nals was be­tween men’s A-grade teams the Mil­ton Man­goes and Roma State Col­lege.

Turn­ing the so­cial game into a highly com­pet­i­tive sport, both teams left noth­ing in the tank, putting ev­ery­thing on the line for their last hur­rah.

The young guns from RSC ended up de­feat­ing their ri­vals 7–2.

So­cial touch is al­most over for the 2018 sea­son but the Roma Touch Foot­ball Club has one fi­nal night of games on the cards.

Tonight from 6pm, the mixed teams will be wrap­ping up their sea­son with a not-to-be-missed night of footy.


HOTLY CON­TESTED: Hot to Touch faced off against Wii Not Fit in the ladies’ A-grade grand fi­nal, win­ning the match 10–1.
