Nobody ever felt out of touch

The KRyS Global Summer Touch Rugby League 2013 ended in style with a Play-Off Finals Day to remember.

After the winners of each division had been crowned at the season awards dinner the previous week, it was gloves off for a chance for all teams to win some silverware and finish the season positively.

In Division 1, SteppingStones were determined to overturn a buoyant Island Air flying high after they had clinched the divisional title a few weeks ago.

These two teams, full of players who recently represented the Cayman Pirates touch team at the U.S. Nationals, served up a real treat.

There was plenty of nip and tuck in the game but it was the ‘Stones who eventually got revenge on their great rivals.

Broadhurst went into finals day with a point to prove. Having led the League for much of the summer they were chastened and beaten by Village Greenies who won the divisional title with a superb string of late results.

But history was definitely not repeating on this day. Nothing was going to stop the Broadhurst juggernaut from claiming the Division 2 Cup although the mighty Delta Force gave it a real good go.

Crucial tries from the Broadhurst girls gave them a narrow lead and it was only a full length dive by the gravity-defying Jason Scarff that prevented the inimitable Jyoti Choi from equalizing in the final seconds.

The Village Greenies won the Plate Final against a plucky UBS who fought hard but could just not get the upper hand. DMS took the Division 2 Bowl.

Ogier completed the double, winning the Division 3 Cup to go with their league title and virtually assured promotion to Division 2 next year. GCM took the Division 3 Plate.

As the sun set, all teams came together to share stories of the season and to cap off another fine summer season of touch rugby.

It was the biggest touch tournament ever held in the Cayman Islands with 29 teams participating and thanks went to KRyS Global and to all other team sponsors for helping make it happen.

Other sponsors include: Island Air, SteppingStones, Maples, Genesis Trust, Harmonic, Broadhurst Barristers, PwC, DMS, Travel Pros, Dart, Delta Force, Deloitte, Ernst & Young, EFG Bank, GCM, KPMG, LIME TV, Ogier, Rawlinson & Hunter, Trident, Appleby, Zolfo Cooper, UBS, Queensgate, BDO, Walkers and Heineken.
