THE Callide Valley Touch Football Association men and women's grand final were held last Friday night and women's team, 'Don't Touch' took out the A grade title.

Team captain Sonia Van Mol said she was proud of her team's efforts.

"Really proud of them, they did a really good job,” she said.

The game was a close call.

"It was a really tough game, it went down to a drop off so we had to lose players and play extra time,” Sonia said.

"In the end Taylor Heid got the winning score in the extra time.”

Sonia said the team had no expectations of even coming close to winning this year.

"We started the season with a brand new team so we hadn't really played together and we didn't even expect to make it to A-grade,” she said.

Sonia has been involved with the local touch footy club for some 10 years and said the Don't Touch team were a great bunch of players.

"They are really full of sportsmanship, always building each other up,” she said.

"There is no negativity and they are all really positive, praising each other and always helping each other out.”

While they did have a win this year and the highest one at that, Sonia said it wasn't about winning.

"It's a really fun environment, winning is just a bonus for them,” she said.

"It's a good team to be in.”

Sonia said the team was looking forward to next season.

"They are all planning on staying together,” she said.

"And we will try to back it up again next year.”
