Our Women’s Touch team dominated their first game against the University of Newcastle with a final score of 7-1 and seized another victory over Griffiths University with a final score of 7-3. Although the team suffered a fatal blow against the University of Technology Sydney with a nail-biting game that ended with a 4-7 score, we saw them emerge victorious against Deakin University with a phenomenal 18-0 point lead! With this burst of energy and camaraderie, our Women’s Touch team closed out their game against arch-rivals University of Melbourne with a 7-4 score.
Through their hard work and dedication, the team is currently sitting in second place and are eager to compete against the University of Technology Sydney again for the top spot on the podium. But before then, the team set their sights on the University of Melbourne again, who they might face off against in the semi-finals.
We spoke to the Women’s Touch coach, Imy Hunter about the preparation and training prior to the UniSport Nationals.
“We trained every Tuesday and the odd Sunday in the lead up. We’re in the position where two of our women players are coaching our men’s team and I'm coaching the women’s team as a men’s player. So we’re running against each other a fair bit. As the women are running against the men at a high pace, it’s given them a lot of confidence.” The Women’s Touch Coach stated.
We wish our Women’s Touch Team the best of luck for their upcoming games throughout the week!
