Tonight’s the night for the grand final matches of the Bluesky men and women touch competition.

Leading up to the final round was the mixed competition last Wednesday.

First up was Team ATT and Aroa T Bags, with the former settling into the game quickly.

With good fast driving settles ATT was able to open up the Aroa defence and finish off with some great tries.

Impressive for Team ATT was young Terry Peraua, who used his quick tricky footwork and speed to sneak through the Aroa defence and scoot away and cross the try line.

Team ATT ran away with it, winning 6 -1.

Following that exciting clash was a close, fast game between NukzPower and Mangaia, with NukzPower managing to hold on to its lead 3-2.

Team 007 was just too strong for a depleted Elegi winning six touchdowns to Elegi’s one, and the game between Team Transport and Live Smart was a win by default to Team Transport.

The much anticipated game of the afternoon was between ICI Transformers and Foodland.

Both teams are in the lead on points table on equal points.

It was a fast tit for tat match with both teams attacking well and defending hard.

It came down to the speedsters from both teams to pull out the fancy footwork to find the gaps to get the points on the board, ending in a five all draw.  

The afternoon of finals, will be the opened by the play-offs for third and fourth, followed by the women’s finals and then the men’s finals. The evening will end with prize giving.

All teams are reminded to be on time.
