Touch That have notched their second successive win of the season, defeating ARAC Attack 9-4.

After an initial struggle with several fumbles, it was ARAC Attack’s Vanessa Marshall who scored the first try of last Thursday’s match.

ARAC Attack were off to a great start after the try as they really put the pressure on Touch That and were quick to shut down scoring attempts early on.

However, Touch That were just as quick to step up and cause ARAC Attack’s defences to falter, leading to three successive tries from Katherine Fleischer and Jessica Healy.

After the half-time break, Kirsten Wood was quick to score the first try of the half. As Touch That amped up the defensive pressure, it seemed ARAC Attack found it hard to handle as fumbles continued to cost them valuable points.

Despite tries from Amanda Gatt, Sascha Wood and Bethany Doherty, and great driving efforts from Miranda Dibdin and Shannen Howard, it seemed Touch That were too much for ARAC Attack.

Jodie Perkins, Alexandra Morvan and Madeline Chandler all contributed to extending Touch That’s lead, winning by five points.

In the women’s competition, Trouble Makers held off Karma Touch 5-2 while the Crocs won 7-3 over Shamrocks. In the men’s competition, Avengers and Scoregasms defeated Crocsters United and Broome Jets respectively.
