Touchdowns galore in KPMG Summer Touch League
Six teams have yet to lose a game after four weeks of action in the KPMG Touch Summer League.
In mixed 1, the Polygon Pumas are currently unbeaten with 12 points and have scored an impressive 35 touchdowns so far. The Healthspan Harlequins are second on eight points having won two games and Electric Shocks and Galaxy are both on six points having won a game each, with the Shocks ahead on touchdown difference.
Mixed 2 is a closer battle with Source and JGA both on 10 points with three wins each but Source are ahead on touchdown difference. Dam Busters are not far behind on eight points with two wins under their wings with Intertrust still looking for their first win.
The Intertrust Business team is having more luck and is top of the corporate and social league just ahead of The Marlborough Panthers on touchdown difference. Both teams are unbeaten on 12 points and meet this week in a top of the table clash. Ipes Impalas are leading the chasing pack on 10 points with three wins, with Collas Crill Pink Socks and PWC both on eight points with two wins, the Pink Socks being just ahead on touchdown difference. KPMG Knights are in sixth place with one win so far and BWCI and Northern Trust are both looking for their first wins.
In the men’s division, three teams are currently unbeaten on 12 points, Galaxy are top on touchdown difference with the Healthspan Hurricanes and the Polygon Pirates in hot pursuit. Galaxy and Healthspan meet this week and so there could be a change at the top. Source, JGA and The Christies Exiles are all on eight points with two wins each followed by Electric Shocks and KPMG on six points and one win apiece. Newcomers EY are looking for their first win but have put a number of the established teams under pressure with Specsavers also seeking their first victory.
Hot Panths are leading the ladies division on 10 points having only lost one game so far to second place Source who are undefeated with a game in hand. Source looks like the team to beat with a line up entirely of ladies who have represented the island at touch, rugby or both. Concept 360 and Healthspan Hawks are both on five points with Concept just ahead on touchdowns and Shockettes complete the table and are looking for their first win.
The new mixed youth league for ages 12 – 16 has attracted 60 players with the first half of the season concentrating on learning the game with the competitive league starting on 1st July. The four teams, Sarnia (Mutual) Loan Arrangers, Intertrust Cubs, Hansen’s (Grab & Go) Hot Rods and the Healthspan Hornets, will compete in a round robin before semi-finals and finals.
Games are played at KGV every Wednesday between 6pm and 9pm and spectators are more than welcome.
