Blayney’s under 12 touch football side players were devastated following their shock 2-1 defeat in their grand final match on Wednesday night, March 2.

Following an unprecedented season in which the novice players fought threw undefeated, the players came up against Orange Central Freaks, a team that only managed to scrape home thanks to the vigorous defence of the Blayney Bullets.

With the score at 2-0 the Blayney Bullets managed to score one try that stuck to the scoresheet, the team had crossed the line at four other occasions, but they were all disallowed.

“They were just so devastated,” said supporter and team helping hand Tanealle Hoad, “It was such a defensive game and for their first ever season to get to the finals, the opposition had better watch out next year.”

The effort that the team has shown has not gone without consequence, it appears that moves are afoot to begin a touch football committee in Blayney and take even more teams to Orange for the 2017 – 18 season.
