Nick Way Memorial draws 19 teams to knock-out | Photos

Saville Park was pumping with touch football action over the weekend as Portland hosted its annual Nick Way Memorial Knock-Out event. 

Nineteen teams from Lithgow, Portland and surrounds and visiting teams from Mudgee took to the oval over two days on February 3 and 4. 

Portland Touch Football Association’s Brady McCann said the quality of play was high across both days of the competition. 

“All the games were played in the right spirit and there was plenty of good quality play,” he said. 

“I would like to thank all the teams that participated and made the weekend a success and all the people who helped out and the referees as well.”

The top gong, the A Grade competition, was won by a visiting Mudgee team. 

Shane Taylor from the Jets team took home the best and fairest trophy. McCann said Taylor was not only chosen for his exceptional sportsmanship but also for his willingness to help out, moving equipment and marking lines to help prepare for the competition.
