The Amazing Galaxy Warriors reign supreme
If there was ever a season where the Amazing Galaxy Warrior could be knocked off their perch it was this one. For many seasons, the AGW team has gone about their finish in an emphatic way with relatively easy victories and superb defence. Throughout their history on the sands of Camps Bay teams found it difficult to score any tries against. From the start of the series, have week 1’s play, you got a sense that this could be the season that AGW did win the coveted title of the “Beach Kings of Cape Town”.
Finals day shaped up to be an absolute blinder of the day with the bright summer sun beaming down from the early hours of the morning. There was not a breath of wind and the playing surface was perfectly flat before the start of the day’s play. After an exciting season, with teams battling it out week in and week out, teams had once last chance to make a name for themselves as the summer season culminated in an epic finals day.
Due to the nature of the sand, you simply do not know how each team is going to perform on the day. One of the teams that made an incredible turn around after a series of close loses throughout the series was the ON Fire team. They had finally found their beach legs and made a memorizing finals day ultimately ending 4th after getting their first wins of the seasons.
The consistent newbies to the series The Dynamiters ended their season with the wooden spoon after a double header against the WP Touch Ladies. The Ladies, made an impact on the sand with their touch experience that they have off it. The Dynamiters, traditionally a rugby team, have been able to adapt to the conditions of the beach and will be sure to make some waves in their season.
The Foot Tsekkers which had a fair few players from the old Inbetweeners team brought the skills and flair to the series. They always knew that Finals Day was going to be a tough one and after a rocky start, by their terms, they ended up playing some great touch. They dominated the sizzling ON Fire team in the 3rd/4th game with one their player, Raph Jeftha, scoring the only hat trick on the day.
After 20 games, there was only one that was going to determine who ruled the sands of Cape Town. The final game was one for the ages as old foes AGW and the CB Legends went hammer and tong in what was a typical final – intense, enjoyable and close. After some great interplay from the AGW players, they were on the score board and settled into it. The CB Legends, having experience like no other struggled to capitalize on the chances they creator. After all was said and done, the Amazing Galaxy Warriors once again reigned supreme and held the trophy aloft as they were named the “Beach Kings of Cape Town”.
