12 Gympie touch teams battle for supremacy
TOUCH: Gympie Touch teams' battle for supremacy starts tonight in Men's and Women's grand finals at Albert Park.
Laminex's Callum Pearce faces-off against older brother Matt playing for Ag Solutions in the men's A-grade.
Laminex go in as the underdogs but there are three players who can tip the game to their side's advantage: Glenn Kennedy, Michael Dodt and Lee Mason.
Ag Solutions has secured a spot in the grand final for the fifth year in a row. It has three players who will need to fire to clinch a win: Joe Chapman, Lachlan Williams and Pearce.
The women's A-grade final is expected to be fast paced, with both teams boasting Wide Bay and Sunshine Coast representative players. It will be last year's grand final replay when Gympie Garage Doors take on Tomahawks.
With just one point securing victory for Gympie Garage Doors last year, the competition will be fierce. Caitlyn Urwin, Allie Salter and Casey Dobson are three players the Tomahawks will have to shut down.
Tomahawks' Tia McLellan, Lilli Finger and Yasmine Sauer will be key if Tomahawks are to overcome their underdog status and take the final.
Tonight's games: 6pm Field 1 women's B-grade Channon Lawrence Dental v Suncoast Hydraulics.
Field 2 men's C-grade Sluggers v Wide Bay Hydraulics.
7pm Field 1 women's A-grade Gympie Garage Doors v Tomahawks.
Field 2 Men's B-grade Gympie Welding Works v Shepherd's Betta.
8pm Field 1 men's A-grade Ag Solutions v Laminex.
THE last round of touch football finals is upon us tonight and set to rock Albert Park.
Mixed A-grade has TSR taking on Gympie Garage Doors for grand final glory.
Both teams have a strong outfit of players and are no strangers to playing in a grand final.
TSR may have a slight edge over Gympie Garage Doors as the table leaders and having played in the grand final the past three seasons.
Michael Dodt, Joe Chapman and Lachlan Williams are players to tip the balance to their side's favour.
Gympie Garage Doors should not be underestimated though, being crowned the winners last year, and defeating St Patrick's Seniors in a tense drop-off on Monday night to make the final.
Owen Dugdale, Noah Strachan, Brandon Baumgart, Caitlin Urwin and Casey Dobson are who TSR will need to stop.
In B grade, table leaders Malibu will be hard to stop and their players Jack Baumgart, George Finger, Lilli Finger and Nakita Rogers are expected to go hard.
Four Mile Quarry finished third but knocked out second place to get to the grand final and key players Jack Johnson and Bonnie Johnson will want their side to go all the way.
The mixed touch finals start from 5pm.
Field 1: Mixed F-grade Nescafe Mixed v Gympie Regional Realty.
Field 2: Mixed G-grade Potbellies Mixed v Steeline Pussy Cats.
6pm Field 1: Mixed E-grade Autobarn v Bent St Vets.
Field 2: Mixed D-grade Smartcube v John Madill Toyota.
