After four weekends of fierce “TOUCH” and “NO TOUCH”, The Brass Monkey Taipei Touch League 2.0 comes to a close. In the quarter finals (QF), Sexy Beasts (3rd) played Westlake OBs (6th) and Taiwan Celts (4th) played Mr. Sausages (5th) with Sexy Beasts and Taiwan Celts qualifying for two spots in the semi-finals (SF).

In SF 1, Sexy Beast and Taipei Hulks played for the third time this season with the record of one win a piece (Game 1, Sexy 4-3; game 2, Hulks 7-4). Taipei Hulks have a slight edge over the Sexy Beasts with the touchdown tally of 10-8. However, the reigning champions Sexy Beasts sealed the game in the first half (4-1) as they had too much class for Taipei Hulks, booking a berth in the finals with a commanding performance 5-2.
In SF 2, KGB had a clear edge with a record 2–0 over Taiwan Celts (game 1, KGB 3-0; game 2, KGB 5-4) with KGB touchdown tally of 8-4. However, history was not to be repeated as Taiwan Celts booking the other berth in the finals by winning 3-2.
The 3rd and 4th place was played out between the minor premiers KGB and Taipei Hulks with Taipei Hulks beating KGB for the first time this season to take home the Plate. Over on the other field, the 5th and 6th place was played out between Mr. Sausages and Westlake OBs, with Mr. Sausages winning 5-2.
Emotions must have ran high in the final with Taiwan Celts been led by Paul Rose (ugh, ex-captain of Sexy Beats) taking on the reigning champions The Sexy Beasts, led by Yi-Hsuan (a Taiwan Celt!). The Gaelic spirit rallied behind the men and women in blue to beat the skills and thrills of The Sexy Beasts. The Taiwan Celts drank out of the Winner’s Cup with a 5-3 victory.
On behalf of the Chinese Taipei Touch Association, we would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU to the committee who helped to make this happen, Including Paul Rose, Trent Prestegar, Fershad Irani, David Lee.

經過四周末刺激的“TOUCH” 以及”NO TOUCH”, 銅猴子臺北觸球聯賽2.0完美結束了。在四分子一決賽1 (QF1), Sexy Beasts 性感野獸隊 (3rd)跟西湖OB隊(6th)對決。四分之一決賽2(QF2), Taiwan Celts 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊(4th)跟Mr. Sausage 香腸先生的廚房(5th) 對決爭取半決賽的資格權。最後是性感野獸隊以及臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊獲得了參加半決賽的權力。
在半決賽1,性感野獸隊和Taipei Hulks 臺北綠巨人隊將進行本聯賽第三次的對決,雙方對決的戰績為1-1平手(第一場,性感野獸以4-3勝,第二場,綠巨人以7-4勝)。以觸地等分數來比較臺北綠巨人擁有微弱優勢領先10-8。然而,衛冕冠軍的性感野獸隊在上半場結束就以4-1領先,最後以5-2擊敗了綠巨人並且獲得決賽的參加權。
半決賽2,KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡隊和臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊進行第三次對決。KGB有明顯的2-0戰績優勢 (第一場,KGB以3-0勝;第二次,KGB以5-4勝)以及觸地等分數的優勢8-4。然而,歷史沒有重複的。愛爾蘭足球隊以3-2獲得決賽的參賽權。
第三、四名將由聯賽第一名KGB和聯賽第二名臺北綠巨人隊爭奪盤獎盃。 綠巨人隊在本賽季第一次擊敗了KGB隊並且將盤獎盃帶回家。在另一個場地進行的第五、六名將由香腸先生隊以及西湖OB隊來對決。香腸先生隊以5-2獲勝。
當天最讓人期待的比賽當然就是冠亞軍賽咯。本場的情緒一定是破表的高漲,因為本賽季的臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊是由Paul Rose (上賽季性感野獸的隊長)率領挑戰衛冕冠軍的性感野獸隊,而該隊長為李宜璇(臺灣愛爾蘭足球的隊員)。 蓋爾族的精神凝聚在穿藍色背心的愛爾蘭足球球員背後,然而愛爾蘭足球隊擊敗了性感野獸的刺激球技。 最後,只有臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊的球員從冠軍獎盃嘗試到勝利的滋味。
我代表臺灣觸球協會,我們想要說一個巨大的“感謝您”! 包括聯賽委員會中的Paul Rose, Trent Prestegar, Fershad Irani, David Lee. 還有全部的隊長/領隊們(臺北綠巨人隊的Andy Yi; 臺灣愛爾蘭足球隊的Paul Rose; 性感野獸隊的李宜璇; 西湖OB的王克成; 香腸先生廚房的Mark Goding 和James Chang; 紐西蘭風味漢堡的Antoni Barry和Fershad Irani), 全體的裁判們、攝影師們以及我們的贊助商KGB紐西蘭風味漢堡, FUDGE, Mr. Sausages Kitchen 香腸先生的廚房 贊助給我們的餐劵等。另外還要感謝銅猴子酒吧提供的美味晚宴以及頒獎典禮。我們感謝您們的慷慨和持續的支持能夠讓這屆的聯賽有個美好的句點。最後,我們感謝所有觸球朋友們,沒有您們的參與,我們就無法安排怎麼完美的聯賽 !
