The Straits Touch tournament in Marlborough has always been a highlight of the touch season was no different this year. We had an early start on the bus at 5:30 am and played five 15 minute games in the humidity of Johor. Although winning the first game, the team got off to a rough start still trying to get into the groove and use to the extremely muddy fields. We finished at the top of our pool tying with Tanglin and finishing our last pool game with an impressive 11-1. Our semi-finals resulted in a tie with SAS, where we prevailed in the overtime drop-offs with a final score of 1-0. Moving forward, we knew that our finals would consist of a tough match against Dover. The girls played hard and persevered through the long and humid day to end with a respectable loss of 1-2. The silver medal hanging around our necks at the end of the day was an indication of how far we have come this season and how much more we still have to prove.
