Guts and glory

With just two games to go, it’s all down to guts and glory. Premier and Senior A teams have been ranked in the top four and bottom four in each grade – the top four will play for the title while the bottom four get a chance to improve their rankings.

There were close scores last Saturday, as you’d expect at this stage of the proceedings. Year 10A and WHS Base had to be the game of the day – the crowd noise was deafening as everyone counted down the clock to the final buzzer. With the scores locked at 36-36, a draw seemed a fitting result.

Ones to watch

Check out the top-four playoffs in each grade this Saturday:
Premier: Top-ranked Altitude v fourth-ranked GRC at 11am; second-ranked Chico’s/ABL v third-ranked High School 1 at 2pm.
Senior A: Top-ranked WHS 2 v fourth-ranked Cougar Security at 1pm; second-ranked Executive Accommodation v third-ranked Year 9 at 2.30pm.
