The Junior Touch competition’s top of the table team, Mighty Red Roosters, proved their dominance in the senior division by defeating Stingers 6-2 in last Thursday’s game.

The final score however didn’t reflect the high quality of the game with Stingers producing some sensational fast attacking plays headed up by Luke Giurin and Jack Rogers.

For the Roosters Elias Aumua stepped up and directed his team around the field.

He was well supported in the middle by Zac Broughton while Maddie Bruce chased down every breakaway player.

Green Machine laid on nine tries to win over Blue Heelers who finished with six points.

Up 5-0 in the first half, the Green Machine looked to have the game wrapped up however the Blue Heelers made them work for the win by scoring six tries in the second half.

There  were multiple try scorers across the park which shows the vast improvement in player skills.

Toby Greenwood had his usual rock solid game for the Blue Heelers and picked up Best and Fairest points.

Jorja Harris was heavily involved in attack and defence for the Green Machine, as was Sophie Clark for the Heelers.

Kai Greenwood and Jaxon Burke were also standout players.

Played in very trying, hot conditions both of the juniors division games were close and action packed.

Carrot Crew narrowly beat the GOATS
5-4 in their match.

Top of the table GOATS played some great attacking touch footy but were unable to shut down Mitch Allen and Talas Burke for Carrot Crew.

George MacDonald scored three great tries for the GOATS and was well supported by Jaxon Waugh and Lara Travis in attack, but it was solid defence by Carrot Crew that proved to be the difference in the end.

Blueys defeated Electric Eels 7-6 in another fast paced game where Sosie Barton and Piper Allen dominated.

Kye McCosker added three tries to his season tally and Lara Stephens was rewarded with a try following some great support play.
