Ballina Dragons’ great results at Urunga

The Ballina Dragon Boat Racing Club is a group of paddling people from all walks of life who enjoy being out on the water having fun and keeping fit.

An awards night for the Summer 6s was held at the Bangalow Bowlo and included the players from the men’s and women’s A grade winning teams.

The Bangalow Summer 6s six-a-side soccer tournament came to an end last week with champions crowned over five  women’s and four men’s grades.

In the women’s A grade competition Hava Dig defeated Echidnas, B grade saw Netsix & Chill beat Winging It, in C grade Tye Dye Darlings beat The Blister Sisters, while in D grade The Sorry Jaynes overcame Mismatched Maids; and in E grade Yummy Mummys were too strong for Wonder Women.

In the men’s A grade final the Goats bucked Thunder Buddies, in B grade North Korea lost to Taco Emergency, in C grade Bay Kebabs FC beat Cobber Johns; and in D grade Woodducks were too strong for The Zeps.

For the first time this year two junior division were run for the first time as part of the Bangalow Summer 6s, but as they were not competitive they did not run a finals series.
