Ever thought you were tired after a match? After 40 minutes of the preliminary final, scores were tired and the Womens A division teams went into a drop-off. 32 minutes later the winning touch down was scored! Check out the following match report from Karratha Touch in Western Australia… PRELININARY FINAL PRODUCES TOUCH GAME OF THE SEASON: With scores level at the final siren and the deciding ‘drop off’ lasting a staggering 32 minutes, Karratha’s Womens A Division preliminary final produced Karratha’s touch football game of the season last Wednesday. In what was one of the most competitive and exciting games seen in Karratha, Minxes defeated Rene Team (5-4) with Tammy Rhodes from Minxes breaking through to score the winning touch down. “The Karratha Touch Association are looking into whether any records were broken regarding how long the drop off went for,” said President of the Karratha Touch Association, Karen Davy. “It was very exciting watching two teams who had just completed a very competitive game go back out onto the field to battle it out until one team scored. “You can definitely say that at the end of the game we had some very exhausted players,” said Karen. Minxes were elated with the win having narrowly missed out on last year’s grand final when they were ironically eliminated by Rene Team. Minxes will now take on the women’s touch league minor premiers, Jatz. In the Womens B Division preliminary final, 110% defeated Ditz Chicks. The Mens A Division preliminary final was also a close game with Odds Sods defeating Lost Causes 7 – 6. A touch down after the half time siren, and another well timed touch down on the full time siren, pushed Skilled over the line (4 – 3) against Wannabz in the B Division. Skilled will play Go Easy in the grand final. The Karratha Touch Association encourages all players to come down to the Bulgarra Oval and cheer on the players competing in the grand final games tonight. A raffle will be drawn which includes a weekend getaway package to the Karratha International Hotel. The Karratha Touch Association thanks Hamersley Iron and the Water Corporation in sponsoring their fundraising efforts to send teams to the State Touch Titles being held in Perth in March 2005.
