Deloitte Blue Has Done it again - 6th win in Lawyers & Accountants Touch Footy

NO words could describe the all conquering Deloitte Blue team which recorded its 6th straight consecutive win when they beat a very fired up Esi Loan Auditor General’s Office 3-2 in the grand final of the Port Moresby 2004 SP Brewery Ltd Inter-Firm Lawyers & Accountants Touch Footy 7-A-Side competition played last Friday at the Llyod Robson Oval in front of a very vocal crowd.

And the road to victory was not an easy one for Deloitte Blue as they had to over come the first hurdle in the semi-final play-offs when the Paul Paraka Lawyers shook the reigning champions 1-1 at full time and then stretch them to the limit in extra time before Deloitte scored the winner to win 2-1.

The similar fashion was displayed in the touch footy grandfinal when the Auditor General Office lock the score 2-2 at fulltime before Deloitte’s smallest man Alphonse Steven scored the deciding try in the extra time.

A record 16 teams from the 12 legal and accounting firms in Port Moresby participated with more than 100 professional staff, their support staff and spouses took part in a very fun fill afternoon. Professional referees from the Central Touch Association took control of the whistle and control the games very well through the afternoon.

SP Brewery and Coca Cola Amatil supported the touch footy competition by sponsoring in kind. SP Brewery renewed its support since 1994 by donating two shields to be contested by the Cup and Trophy winners respectively while Coca Cola Amatil donated 20 cartons of assorted can drinks which were distributed evenly to the participating teams, referees and the organisers of the competition.

Chief Organiser Robert Tiki thanked the sponsors and said that without them the event would not have been colourful and enjoyable. “I take off my hat to SP Brewery Ltd which has supported us since the inception of the competition in 1994 and very grateful that they have renewed their ties by sponsoring two shields this year to be contested by the Cup and Trophy grand finalists”. Tiki also added “The competition would not have been successful without Coca Cola Amatil who has boosted the moral of the participants by donating 20 cartons of assorted can drinks which were shared evenly and I am pleased to say that all the firms, referees and my organising committee members have welcome their support”. Tiki said he look forward to the continued support from both companies in the years to come.

Music entertainment was provided by professional musician David Saun from CHM Supersound who kept the crowds alive every time in belt one of the favourite numbers for the crowds.

The grandfinal started off at a very fast pace with both sides throwing all they have against each other. After some good clever play, Deloitte Blue co-captain John Wau race unopposed to score first of his two tries. He followed the same later to score his second try giving a handy lead for Deloitte Blue 2-Nil over the Auditor General's Office.

But just when the Deloitte Blue thought that they had the upper hand in winning, Auditor General Office bounce back through some slack Deloitte defense to score two quick tries in a space of minutes to level the score 2-2. Both teams played strongly defensively and attacking each other at every opportunity until the full time. The draw in the grandfinal meant that they would go into sudden play-off in extra time with the team scoring the first try wins the game.

In the extra time, the game again started off very furiously with some very enterprising runs from each sides. The sudden death play-offs require each team to drop a player each after every set of six touches until 4 players are standing. Both sides played down to 4 players and after some battering defense and attacking against each other, Deloitte’s smallest man Alphonse Steven stole the show when he raced off from within meters in the Auditor General’s territory and scored the winner from some very tiring Auditor General's Office players.
