The Broome Touch Association sent an eager team of over 40s to Perth for the WA State Touch Football Championships at the weekend.

The championships were held from February 9 to 11 and drew teams from around WA to compete across eight divisions.

Although Broome’s team of 40-year-old s only managed to rack up one win, the side put up a ferocious fight all the way to the last round.

In a series of hard-fought encounters, Broome clashed with the Southern Stars in the opening round, ultimately losing the match 10-2.

Undeterred by the setback, they pressed on to face Baldivis Heat in the second round, where despite their best efforts, they fell short again, 9-4.

Broome then battled against the Rosalie Razorbacks in round three, Northern Spirit in round four, and the Piak Piak Bandits in round five, with each match fiercely contested despite eventual losses of 8 to 3, 11 to 4 and 8 to 3, respectively.

Broome suffered yet another loss in round six, facing off against the ARKS to come to a 11 to 4 defeat.

However, success came in the penultimate round, as Broome secured a hard-fought victory against Karratha, triumphing with a narrow margin, 6 to 5.
