Whit­sun­day Touch Foot­ball grand fi­nals de­liver this sea­son’s stand­out per­form­ers

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT - Bernard Woods

TOUCH FOOT­BALL: The Whit­sun­day Touch Foot­ball grand fi­nals were played last Thurs­day night after be­ing post­poned due to the poor weather on Mon­day.

In the main game, Young Gunz played one of their bet­ter games of re­cent weeks to take out the A-grade grand fi­nal, de­feat­ing Ray White 6-5.

After a tight first half, Young Gunz led two tries to one and their speed in at­tack helped them ex­tend their lead to three tries mid­way through the sec­ond half.

It looked that they might win com­fort­ably un­til Ray White found their rhythm in the fi­nal quar­ter of the match to fight back, but they were un­able to bridge the deficit and fell just short of lev­el­ling the game and forc­ing an ex­tra time drop off.

Vogue In­te­ri­ors played well to de­feat Try-ranasaurous Rex and take out the B-grade grand fi­nal.

Credit must go to Try-ranasaurous Rex who put up a good fight con­sid­er­ing they played the en­tire game with one player short.

Fi­nal score: Vogue In­te­ri­ors 6 d Try-ranasaurous Rex 3.

In the B/C-grade match, Mis­chief Crew proved too strong for their less ex­pe­ri­enced op­po­nents, Con­crete Feet.

The fi­nal score was Mis­chief Crew 9 d Con­crete Feet 3.

In an­other close en­counter, Full Boar just man­aged to over­come White­haven Ad­ven­tures by five tries to four to claim the crown of C-grade premiers for 2018 sea­son two.

The Whit­sun­day Touch Foot­ball com­mit­tee would like to thank all teams and play­ers for their par­tic­i­pa­tion this year and hopes to see ev­ery­one back again next sea­son.

Thank you also to all the Whit­sun­day Touch Foot­ball com­mit­tee mem­bers and ev­ery­one who vol­un­teered dur­ing the year in­clud­ing ref­er­ees, can­teen work­ers and those who helped run the ju­nior teams. We would also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to wish ev­ery­one a happy Christ­mas and New Year.

B-grade premiers Vogue In­te­ri­ors.
