The touch footy grand final on Wednesday night saw the Mununjali Eagles romp home with  a 5-0 win against the Desert Eagles at Willis Park .

Mununjali spokesperson Brad Currie said the Eagles had played every Monday night during the season and fought hard for their place in the final open mixed division game.

Mr Currie was referee on the night and said both teams had played well.

He said players on the Mununjali team were a mixture of male and female ranging in age from 14 to 43.

“The Mununjali Eagles came out strong, with a well-structured first half,” he said.

“By half time they were already ahead 4-0 and the Desert Eagles found themselves in a catch-up situation.

“They definitely regained their composure and became more competetive towards the back end of the first half but it’s a hard task to come back against a four point lead.”

Mr Currie said there were several stand-out Mununjali players on the night including Carl Hotz and Leon Beattie.

“The ladies also contributed to the win with rolling rucks to create structure in the game,” he said.

“It was quite an enjoyable match, with both teams playing well and in good spirits.”
