Lismore teams too strong in Ballina championships

THE Ballina championships last Sunday at Saunders Oval attracted teams from Murwillumbah, Bilambil, Ballina, Lismore, Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga and Yamba in open and senior mixed divisions.
There were some excellent games and close competition, but teams representing Lismore proved too strong and won bothdivisions.

The male members of the Lismore open mixed team were complemented by some girls from the Ballina association, who played extremely well and their efforts were appreciated by team captain Josh Sauer

Lismore Touch at Hepburn Park last Monday night went ahead despite threatening weather.
Close games continued, and there were more draws in the mixed division.

There are 28 teams in this division, proving the popularity of friends and families playing together.

The junior competition is powering along, the children really enjoy the sport, and the association is fortunate to have senior players willing to teach them the skills required to play.

Some Lismore and Ballina senior players will compete in the Pan Pacific Masters Games this weekend on the Gold Coast – a huge event with sportsmen and women of all ages in a variety of sports.

Lismore will be represented at the NSW Touch Association’s premier event, the State Cup, at Port Macquarie in December.

The Lismore association has entered an open men’s team, along with the senior mixed team that won last year.
