The heavyweight division saw the continued battle for top spot between Spartans and Avengers and although Avengers beat their rivals on the day, they paid the price for their losses on the last match day. Although both teams finished tie on match points the Spartans took the title on points scored by 10 wazaris.  An excellent performance from them throughout a tough season.

Below them Vipers took a well-deserved 3rd place finishing above Phantoms who crept above Cobras to take 4th spot.

DIV 2 u28K 3.30 pm

Legends cruised to victory in this division despite dropping points to second placed Phantoms (7-8)  , Phantoms certainly one of the most improved teams we’ve seen this season beat the winners but lost to two of the other teams. They will certainly be looking to be more consistent next season.

Dementors finished a comfortable 3rd above Flying Tigers and the Little Ninjas.

 POOL B

In Pool B, again it was two teams battling it out for the 2 playoff spots. Legends had been leading the way but Phantoms had an unbeaten day and clawed their way even on points  with Legends and due to a points scored advantage of 77 to 74 they topped the division.

Cobras had to settle for 3rd above Avengers B and Spartans below them

And we got to the business end of the season and saw the 2 semi-finals: -

In the first semi-final we saw Legends defeat pool A winners Flying Tigers by 9 -8 whilst in the second semi-final Phantoms beat Dementors 8-6.  This left a final between the two qualifiers from pool B.

Could Phantoms repeat their win over the Legends, yes they could! Not as emphatic as they would have liked but an 8-6 win gave them the title and Legends the runners up spot

DIV 2 u45K 4.30 pm

This division had already been one of the closest in Junior League history and now it turned into a crazy scrabble to the line with the equivalent of a photo finish between all 5 teams. The top two teams only won one match each whilst the bottom two teams won 3 each. This left the Flying Tigers perched on top of a table where all the other teams had THE SAME MATCH POINTS. The Flying Tigers must have thanked their lucky stars that their form was better at the beginning of the season as it stood them in good stead at the bitter end.  A two point win over the rest of the field who had to be split on points scored. Spartans managed to take runners up spot by courtesy of scoring 2 more points than Phantoms, 8 more than Dementors and 13 more than Legends.  Maybe there is a lesson here about scoring more points for some of the teams and not just being content with a match win!
