The BHP Dirt Slingers defeated the Hedland Senior High School Schoolies 4-3 in a dramatic extra time finish on June 25, to take out the inaugural touch football Corporate Cup.

Victory for the Dirt Slingers was a family affair with five members of the immediate Levi family competing together.

BHP’s Iyeesha Levi was best afield in the grand final at Marie Marland Reserve, scoring three tries, including the match winner in extra time.

The tournament also featured teams from the Hedland Health Campus, Cassia and South Hedland primary schools, Qube and Sonic Health.

The Schoolies had four individual try scorers in their 4-1 semi final victory over Qube, as they claimed a spot in the grand final.

BHP’s touch representatives comfortably secured their spot in the trophy decider with a 6-nil victory over To Phun behind two tries from Shaffee Levi.

Gloria Jacob hosted the awards presentation in which Caleb Rattery was announced tournament MVP.

Rattery’s success comes as no surprise as he was the leading try scorer and co-MVP of Hedland touch football’s first season for 2021.

Kirsty Kubala won female MVP, Treasure Vailala was the leading female try scorer and Rahman Pearson was the leading male try scorer.

Season two of Hedland touch football will commence late July.
