Touch season’s strong finish

TOUCH FOOTBALL: Dalby’s touch competition is always highly contested, and this season was no exception.

With the grand finals held last week, players across all division were ready to bring their A game.

Megan Bateman, publicity officer for Dalby Touch Association, said the finals always were of high quality.

“We have a lot of strong players and a few representative players who play for south-west, so the standard is always there,” she said.

“Just within the club alone there’s players who have played for Queensland and Australia and not a lot of people know about that.

“The finals went really well and they’re always good to watch. Everybody definitely brought their A game and had a blast, and you can see that from the scores.”

In the mixed competition, the fast-paced A-grade match was won by Madrid, who defeated Stinger 7-4, with Brendan Taylor named Player of the Final.

Best and Fairest Awards were also presented to Hannah Hegedus of the Stingers and Grant Taylor from Madrid.

In the B-grade, Honeybadgers defeated Thick or Thin 8-6 with Josh Dodd named Player of the Final.

The Ladies division saw A-grade saw Uncut taking on the Fireflies, with Fireflies winning 6-3.

Chloe Carmichael was named Player of the Final, while Karissa Taylor from Roosters was awarded the Best and Fairest of the season for the A-grade ladies.

Ladies B-grade was a tough competition, with Crusaders v DSHS U15 Girls.

The Crusaders were unbeatable, taking away the win 6-4.

Abbey Turner was Player of the Final.

In the Men’s A-grade, the River Rats defeated the Panthers 10-4.

Brendan Taylor was named Player of the Final, and was tied Best and Fairest for the season with Jake Schreiber.

B-grade saw the Black Toyota boys take home the victory against Bogan Bros 6-4.

Junior grand finals will be held this week.
