Mixing it up


LAST week’s senior touch mixed games provided some interesting match-ups and varied results. In a close encounter, RSOR 7 came out on top against Cartwrights 6, and Phantoms 8 outplayed Good Shepherd (gold) 4. Keba 7 continued their winning streak with a win over Bee Man 2 and in a game that went down to the wire All Stars 6 got the points against Buccaneers 5. There was another tight match up with RSL Cougars 6 defeating CSR 5. In other results Good Shepherd 8 had a win over All Coast Roofing 5, Bandits 14 ran away with the game against Cruzers 6 and Breakaway Marine and Madills played out a nail-biting five-all draw. Slippery Eels 11 defeated Reapers 7, Noosa Surf Club 13 were too strong for Gotchas 6 and Atmosphere 10 accounted for Fumble That 2.
The Wednesday ladies competition saw Heidi’s Body and Skin Care 7 have a win against Noosa 12s 2, ABL Driving School 9 were too strong for Sunshine Beach 1 and in a close tussle Fig Jam 4 were eventual winners over Rissoles 3.
Close games were the order of the night in the men’s competition. Several drawn games and the biggest winning margin was just three touchdowns. Ultra Tune 7 had a win over Noosa Tens 4, Hangloosa 7 had a narrow defeat against Misfits 8, Evolution 8 got the points against Madills 5 and Noosa 9s 6 had a hard-fought win over Energex 5.

Another round of fantastic junior touch games were played last week.
In the under-14/16 division, NDSHS 8s had a hard fought win over ABL2 Driving School with Billy, Lexie and Jac playing well. Although Good Shepherd went down to Inferno, their game continues to improve every week, Amelia, Fraser and Tom were leading the way for their team in this game. SBSHS 16s won against NDSHS 8s (Blue), Tayla, Abbey and Kalen produced great games. In a nail-biter, Noosa 9s just finished in front of Sunshine Rebels, Lexi, Shani and Bronte were standouts in this game. NDSHS 8s (Green) were too strong for St Teresa’s (Black).
The under-12s saw Saints and Purple Storm playing, with Saints being the eventual winners with mighty efforts by Ruby, Ranene and Lea. That Cool Team proved too strong for Steppers, great play by Lucy, Noah and Emily; and Banana Splits came out on top against Good Shepherd. Great skills were shown by Shakira, Morgan and Jamaica.
Wrapping up the afternoon were the under-10s games. Blazers went down fighting against a determined Cool Runnings with Ben, Yuji and Armin producing first rate performances. Candy Girls and Twisters played well with Candy Girls taking the win. Maddie, Alla and Ava had mighty games. Maroons took the game against Good Shepherd with Roy, Nicholas and Zak playing strongly.
