Sand stars finish the regular season strong with only finals day to come

Mother nature played her part last week with her introduction of less than ideal playing conditions – windy, wet and unfair to any beach goer. Sometime off from the white sands of the Camps Bay beach meant teams had a week to rest, recover and re-discuss strategy for the final week of play. The break was welcomed by all, as the excitement before tap-off was palpable. Individuals from all teams were down early to assess the conditions, get in a solid warm up and mentally prepare for the upcoming challenge.

The first teams that started, what was a great week of play, was the old favourite and resident team the CB Legends who took on the WP Touch Ladies. Cracker of a game from the outset as each team threw everything they had at each other. Although the CB Legends ended up pulling away by 5 tries to 1, it was not a true reflection of the battle that took place. The WP Ladies bounced back with a solid victory against a depleted ON Fire team, a team which was missing some key players and are yet to truly find their beach legs.

In terms of rivalries on the sand there is one that started from the very beginning of the series, several seasons ago. The AGW vs CB Legends showed down. It is the game that all spectators get excited by and the one that always offers up top-quality touch. In this week’s “clash of the titans” AGW ended up with bragging rights over the Legends. The question has to be asked though, are the Legends keeping it all for finals day?

There were some very interesting other results this week. The Foot Tsekkers made it 2 from 2 with great performance in each and the Avengers followed suit. The Dynamiters slipped down the overall standings this week with 2 losses and will be looking to bounce back for finals day.

Great week of play on the beautiful sands of Camps Bay beach!
