EIGHT teams, four games, one massive night.

It's fair to say the battle for the Gladstone Touch grand finals stepped up a notch on Saturday night.

With all matches tied as the final whistle blew, the refs allowed for extra-time drop-offs to determine the overall winners.

The CBH Steelers got above Patricks in the mixed division one match, with the DT Titans finishing strongly to snare a win against the Sportscene Saints in the Masters by one point.

In the women, Steelers took the title against the In Focus Choppers, also winning by a small margin.

Balls Deep felt the pain of five absent players, going down to the agile Oaka Construction men in the division one match.

With a 4-3 margin at half-time, the game remained close until the final few minutes of the match.

Gladstone Touch Association organiser Jamie Oliver said the youthfulness of the Oaka team helped push them to a win.

"The Oaka team is made up of teenagers and they took out the Div 1 Men's title last year," Oliver said. They are certainly getting better with age."

Oliver said he was looking forward to what the new season would bring.

"The day was very successful with a great turnout of supporters lining the fields to watch some quality touch football finals," he said.

The Gladstone Touch competition will resume in February.
