VT League Finals Day

Sunday, 24 February will see a big day of Touch Football action at Elwood Park in Melbourne, with the 2012/13 Victorian Touch (VT) League finals taking place.

Qualifying finals, semi finals and grand finals will be played on Sunday across three divisions – Men’s, Women’s and Mixed.

Finals day of the VT League starts at 9.00am with the Mixed qualifying finals, followed by the qualifying finals for the Women’s and Men’s divisions at 9.50am and 10.40am respectively.

Semi finals then take place at 11.45am for Mixed, followed by 12.35pm for Women’s and 1.25pm for Men’s.

Grand finals of all three divisions will round out the day, with the Mixed grand final at 2.30pm, Women’s grand final at 3.30pm and the Men’s grand final at 4.30pm.

For the first time this season, the Mixed division has seen six teams compete, with a successful season had by all. The Melbourne University Northern Blacks have been the form team all year and have progressed straight through to the semi finals as have the Melbourne City Lions.

The Melbourne City Lions in the Women’s division are reigning champions who are on equal points with rivals the Bayside Vipers heading into the finals. The Lions will see three Australian representatives, Leah Percy (Women’s Open), Kirsten Friend and Mel Woodward (Women’s 30’s) take to the field, while the Vipers have two national representative players in Brooke James (Australian Women’s 30’s) and Jamie Te Pania (New Zealand Women’s 30’s) and if the two sides are to meet in the final it will no doubt be an exciting encounter.

The Melbourne City Lions also finished on top of the Men’s ladder following the round games, closely followed by the Western Dodgers. Only four points separates the top three teams, and VT League Finals Day will no doubt entertain!
