THE 2018 Anyinginyi Health
Mixed Touch Football finals
were held last week with two
great games on display for
the community to watch. It
draws a close to the biggest
local touch football competi-
tion in Tennant Creek.
“It was exciting to see such a
diverse group of players come
together,” said Grant Melzer, Any-
inginyi Health Sport and Recreation
“We started with a total of eight
teams and over eight weeks we had
a total of 87 registered players.”
After each team had played six
games each, the top four would
move into the finals.
Power Rangers, TC Warriors, Can’t
Touch This and Nesians.
First up was Power Rangers vs TC
Warriors were it was a comfortable
win by TC Warriors 7-0.
With it being a top of the table
clash we always knew it would be
a fast and furious game with Joseph
leading the young warriors. Special
mention to Taylor and Ronalda scor-
ing 6 of the TC Warriors 7 points.
The next game would see Can’t
Touch This versus Nesians.
It started off with Can’t Touch This
scoring 3 quick points in the first half
thanks to Jan and Keara. Nesians
had a later serge with Nate scoring a
quick 2 point before the break.
It seemed Can’t Touch This had the
win sealed until Zac busted through
the centre scoring a late try to bring
it level at the end of the game.
For the first time this season we
would have to go to extra time with
first try wins.
Both teams had equal opportunities
to win but it wasn’t until Matthew
from the Nesians got a chance to
break free down the wing outrun-
ning his defender, diving to score
the match winning try moving them
through to the Semi Final.
The Semi Final would see Power
Rangers vs Nesians.
With some players feeling battered
and bruised it was time to put that
aside and get to business. It was
a showcase from Power Rangers
Taneal scoring the teams only points
but putting them 4-2 at the half time
break. Although a late charge from
Nesains Zac Limerick scoring a late
try, it wasn’t quite enough to get his
team over the line sending the Power
Rangers into the Grand Final.
The final game of the competition
saw undefeated TC Warriors vs
Speaking with the before the game
“It was a tough game last time
we played them but we are ready
for the challenge,” Power Ranger
Captain Tommy Gillett said before
It was another fast and furious
game with a lot of high skilled plays.
“It’s great to see such a mix of
people coming together yet such
high quality competition. The TC
Warriors team is made up with ma-
jority high school aged youth yet has
some great community mentors in
the team as well,” said Grant.
In the first set of six Lachlan from
TC Warriors found the try line and it
looked like it was going to be a one
It wasn’t until Mikeely scored a
great try putting the Power Rangers
in front. Half time came around with
Power Rangers leading by a point.
After Power Rangers Daniel score
mid way through the second half the
flood gates opened which saw TC
Warriors scoring an unanswered 5
points sealing the game 6-3, sending
TC Warriors to victory.
