Touch football returned from a two-week break with an instant classic between reigning champions the Conquerors and Crazy Horses last Wednesday at the Marie Marland Reserve.

Conquerors looked sharp at the start of the game, scoring quickly before a late fightback from the Crazy Horses saw the game delicately poised at half time with Conquerors leading by just one point.

The second half started with a blitz attack from the Conquerors, scoring the first try of the term in a matter of seconds.

Crazy Horses responded quickly, scoring two tries of their own to trail by one with 10 minutes to go.

The Conquerors looked set for a victory-sealing try when a diving tag by the Crazies stopped the play. Building on this momentum, Crazies responded with two tries to lead with just minutes to go.

Conquerors refused to roll over, scoring a try in the dying seconds to tie the game seven all.

In the other Division 1 games, Rusty Pipes dominated Total Connections 10-2 on the back of a seven-try haul in the first half, while Kurrsi forfeited their match against NADS.

Meanwhile, in Division 2, Triple Zero overran the Phoenix 11-2, Cockatoos flew past the Slingers with an eight-point victory 10-2 and Life and Soul defeated Penguins 8-3.
