Touch back in full swing

TOUCH FOOTBALL: Lismore Touch juniors resumed this week, and except for a few players, there was a good turnout.

There are three more games, with the teams topping the pointscores to be declared winners for the season at the presentation afternoon on February 22.

The senior competition is back in full swing. There were two draws in the mixed division.

Ringerangdos and AJM Air-Conditioning drew 3-all, while TNR Mixed and Me and Me Mates finished 4-all.

Mick Sawtell Magic showed why they are the team to beat for the minor premiership by defeating Eagle Boys by five tries, and Touch of Class were too good for Lats Rat Pack (which maybe should be called Brat Pack because there are five players under 16).

B and B Produce were too strong for Shabiby, Recycled Sports beat Summerland Antiques, and Tommys welcomed back Australian rep-resentative player Hayley McAnelly by defeatingCoastal Graphics.

Fastways had too much for Suncorp B. Other winners included Tommo’s Titans, Easties, The Woodies and BHC.

The Masters division is also back to full strength.

CFBC Irwins were far too strong for Untouchables, the Bolt Barn Boys showed they are in contention by beating NRMA and Workers Blue played well to overcomeWorkers Red.

In the men’s division, Gettin’ Trim and East Lismore Bowlo had big wins over Up and Coming and Team Discovery Channel, while Hungry Jacks returned to form by beating Coastal Graphics.

Players are allowed to play for only one team in each division. They should not double up unless a team forfeits and requests extra players to give their opposition a game.

Also, if a team’s nominated referee is not available to fulfill their duty, another player from that team should fill in.
