Bombers, Flyers draw

FOR the second week in a row, the feature match of the day in the Suva Touch Association weekly competition ended in a draw.

Last week, Bombers drew 7-all with Super Touch and yesterday, Bombers drew 4-all with Flyers White and Davui Magics drew 5-all with Super Touch in the mixed competition at Furnival Park in Toorak.

Association president Charles Cleary said the presence of national reps in both sides proved to be the main factor.

"Both Bombers and Flyers have the services of national reps," he said.

"That was the main reason for the high standard of competition and the tit for tat reply the two teams gave when either side scored.

"In the end, they were both locked at 4-all until fulltime and the Super Touch and Davui Magics match also ended in a draw."

Cleary said the turnout of teams and spectators surprised the organising committee.

"Today (yesterday) was the first time ever that we completed the games early.

"Usually, teams are bit late coming to the grounds and so games would be delayed but not today (yesterday).

"Today (yesterday), everyone came to the grounds on time and the games were all played as such a fast pace that we managed to end very early.

"I would like to thank the committee for leading by example and thank the teams for coming out in full force and also thank the spectators for coming to support their respective teams in the competition."
