Emmaus scores three from three in senior touch finals
TOUCH: The Emmaus College under-13 boys prevailed in drop-offs to win back-to-back titles in the C men's division in Rockhampton's senior touch competition.
Wednesday proved to be a winner for Emmaus, whose three teams won the three finals they contested.
Sports development officer Justen Parle said it was a great feat for school teams to win in the Rocky club competition.
The C men's final was a thriller. Emmaus jumped out to a 7-4 lead but Cavaliers had levelled the score at 7-all when the full-time hooter sounded.
The teams were down to four players in drop-offs when Emmaus ran in the winner, the final score 9-8.
The Emmaus under-15 girls won the B ladies final, beating defending premiers Bazingas 5-4, and the Emmaus open boys claimed the B men's premiership with a 9-6 win over Rockhampton Grammar School.
The Cyril Connell Touch Fields will be a hive of activity again today, with the junior finals to be played from 8am.
