The final day of the leagues threw up more than its usual share of drama, with the results for Benildus being a best finish in 20 years, a record number of board prizes, a title play-off, and direct involvement in possibly the tightest finish ever seen in the Leinster leagues.
Tomorrow sees the finale of the 2018/19 leagues season, so it’s time for one last update of the past couple of weeks. So far, two board prizes have been won and one promotion is all but assured, but there is two more board prizes up for grabs, as well as a possible second promotion and even a title.
Gonzaga lose an Armstrong match, the Heidenfeld and Ennis march on, and the Bodley B sign off with a win.
It’s that time of year again! The various league teams have been docked points for unregistered players (as have most clubs). So if you haven’t paid your club fees as yet, please do get in touch so we can get the points back!
An update on round 8 – mostly! – of our eight teams’ league campaigns.
The Armstrong and the BEA A both recorded big wins in the last week, while the Bodley South suffered a quick reverse against Dún Laoghaire – not helped by the fact that half their team got called up to the BEA at short notice!
The first week back after the Christmas break saw five of our teams in action, and they came away with four wins, with the main board prize chasers all still in the hunt.
