Bakers rise to occasion in touch comp

THE race for a place in the semi-finals of the Murwillumbah Touch Mixed Competition is hotting up with eight teams still capable of making it into the A Grade playoffs.

After a slow start to the season, Bakers Delight have been playing some great touch footy in recent weeks.

Their game against Fleshy Weapons was of a very high standard with both teams putting in a big effort but the Bakers got home 10-7.

Dylan Smith, Nico Neinhart, Phoebe Knell and Sharde Pohatu were among the best for the Bakers while Daniel and Kellie Gray and Sarah and Clint O'Keefe impressed in the Flesh.

Golden Comb also are having one of their best seasons with Nick Forrester, Amy Kight, Rose Spiller and Shane Kight, who has regained his speed, at the forefront.

This team are real contenders for the A Grade premiership.

JH Williams leads the Mixed Division from Golden Comb, Murwillumbah Fitness, Fleshy Weapons and Bakers Delight.

The Subway Super Subs continue to lead the Open Men's division from the Ibises, Murwillumbah Fitness and Scrub Turkeys.

In the Open Women's competition, Maxi Marrisons lead from Knighty Knights, Murwillumbah Smash Repairs and Glen Wyborn Autos.

Calamac Electrical lead the Over 35 Men's division from the Wormers, Greenmount Timbers and Monkey Butts.

A reminder for all players, mixed semi finals start on Friday, March 13 so each team is required to have at least one delegate to stay behind after the game on Wednesday, March 11 to get your match time.
