Buckaneers too strong

By BELINDA SLEEMAN

ROCKHAMPTON'S Buckaneers teams again showcased their dominance in the Rockhampton Touch Association competition last night, winning both the men's and ladies Agrade grand finals.

Buckaneers' Daniel Withers proved too strong for Bulldogs in the men's game, bagging a double in team's 4-3 win.

Keeping to the theme of the night, star Buckaneers' Nicole Higlett and Tanya Shuker also guided their team to a 4-3 win over Bulldogs, despite a fight back from Greta Perkins who scored a double for Bulldogs.

In the B-grade final, competition favourites Cutters reaffirmed their position at the top of the table with a 6-4 win over Prime Time.

Cutters had been undefeated all season before losing to Prime Time in the major semi final two weeks ago in a shock upset win.

Cutters' Andrew Miller and Andrew Withers each bagged a double to secure the win over Prime Time, who were lacking the same pace and intensity that helped them beat Cutters in the last game.

In the B-grade ladies final, favourites Kalka Tactics were too strong for Fillies, with Vicki Fitzgerald's double sealing the win.

The junior grand finals kick off this weekend, with the 13's and 15's hitting the fields on Friday night and under 8's to under 12's battling it out on Saturday.

Senior competition resumes in late February, for more details or nominations contact Ron Etherden on 49 271682.
