Finals Week One
Mrs Macca continues to outshine the old man with a score second only to The Phat Side (2183 to 2142) this week to nab a spot in the SCTTL 1 prelim and a handy two week break to sort out trades. No doubt the Mrs will be trading this week to stay on top of the overall so it will be interesting to see what direction that takes.
The other league 1 prelim spot was nabbed by that Convent Footy Club with the Nuns taking out the MBuzz team by a neat 100 points, 2093 – 1993. Seventh and eighth knocked off their higher ranked opponents to reach the knockout stage. Fixed Interest 2000 snuck in over Lindsay’s (Nato) Tech Difficulties by 66 points, and Alza’s Assassins swooped by 99 over lost Lands to stay in the hunt for the prized prelim spot.
In SCCTL 2, top side Ninius went down to 2 Ezy 2008 to 2056, with the other prelim side being Chips Ahoy with an epic 6 point victory over Daniels’ DR’s Tech Team 1997 to 1991. Continuing the trend, 7th and 8th Kelvinators and Terangatangs clawed their way over 5th and 6th to reach the knockout. Well done and the best of SC luck for the next round.
Top scorers for the round were Phat Side 2183, Mrs Macca 2142, JB Bombers 2132, Mutts Nutts2 2106 and 2 Ezy 2102 as the only sides to crack 2100 for the round. Top five stands at Mrs Macca, JB Bombers, All Nuns, 2 Ezy and Chips Ahoy in that order. The Golden Arches holds what I expect to be an unassailable lead of 761 to this point. This could be the last week to pounce.
Tell us your plans for the shortened round and how many you can field. Are you saving for the next phase, or are you planning on a little of both with ranking in the group being a little bit important to you?
