Perfect conditions greeted 40 teams at Onrus on Monday and the players and spectators made the most of it on the public holiday.
The Onrus sand is notoriously soft and all credit must be given to the players who once again put on an increadible show. The Touch was once again as competitve as ever with tight games accross all competitions being the order of the day…
The Score Energy Warriors topped their group at the end of the Round Robin and they met the Living Legends in the first Semi Final after the “Legends” had lost out on top spot in their pool to the Amazing Galaxy Warriors on try difference.
The top spot in the pool proved to be a big advantage for the Onrus defending champion AGW, who secured what looked to be an easier Semi Final albeit against 2011 Onrus finalists the REDS. This advantage was crucial after a 4-1 victory while the “Legends” were made to work extremely hard only winning their Semi after a Sudden death 1-0 victory over the Score Warriors.
The Final saw some great Touch and the Amazing Galaxy Warriors came out on top with a 2 -1 win in Sudden Death.
The Open Tournament was won by the Beach Lions and the Plate was won by the Unstopables.
The action moves to Struisbaai on Saturday.
