Ray White takes out close final

TOUCH FOOTBALL: Ray White has extended their Whitsunday Touch dominance to a sixth straight premiership after accounting for Young Guns in a thriller on Monday night.

The Whitsunday Sportspark hosted this season's grand finals but it was the A-grade decider that stole the show.

Ray White won the title with a 5-4 win over Young Guns, but scores were tied at 4-4 at the end of regulation time.

The thrilling second half saw both teams trade tries, with neither able to grab the ascendancy.

Ultimately it was Ray White who prevailed in a drop-off, claiming their sixth title in as many season.

In the B-grade title decider, Grogodiles comfortably accounted for Eclipse B 10-5.

It was an upset victory of sorts for Grogodiles, who were forced to qualify for the grand final the hard way after losing the first final.

Eclipse C took C-grade honours with an entertaining 7-5 win over Can't Touch This.

Eclipse C was the dominant team all season but Can't Touch This put up a brave fight against a quality opposition.

Whitsunday Touch also thanked the impartial referees on the night, who travelled from Ayr just to officiate the night's matches.
