Monday Night Triples League
THE 2019 SEASON
LEAGUE STARTED in JULY 2019
WEEK 1: All teams played but the early leaders are Stuart Logan's team
WEEK 2: Wins this week for Team Schools and Team Logan and a draw between Team Messer and Team Bancroft. All of which means Stuart Logan's team still head the league.
WEEK 3: Team Schools maintain a 100% start and thus head the league. Team Messer and Team Fairs slugged it out in another high scoring game 23-21.
WEEK 4: Team Logan have joined Team Schools at the top of the table after a last end 5 shots gave them a big win. Team Schools went down by 1 shot to 3rd placed Team Messer.
WEEK 5: At the half way stage 2 teams are starting to dominate. Teams Schools and Logan sit proudly atop the table with 8 points. Team Eager bottom placed last week but pounced on their unsuspecting opponents to record the biggest win of the season 35-05. Anyone can still win.
WEEK 6: Just a couple of points separate the top 5 teams. Losses by the top 2 have now opened the door for lots of interesting games in weeks 7-10. Team managers now also have to be wary of playing squad members in too many games. A couple of players have already reached their limit.
WEEK 7: Rain stopped play - league table remains unchanged - just 3 fixtures remain.
WEEK 8: Team Schools is now clearly the team who can take the title - in fact it is theirs to lose!
WEEK 9: In the true spirit of fair play and making sure the league championship goes right to the wire - Team Schools lost to Team Messer allowing Team Logan to slip alongside them into pole position. There are still 5 teams who have a sniff!
WEEK 10: Scripts like this are rarely written because they are not believable. Team Schools lost to bottom of the league Team Bancroft so their hopes of winning the title foundered. Team Logan were taken to the cleaners by Team Fairs so 3 teams were locked together on 10 points. Team Messer played Team Eager in the last match of the evening. A win by Messer would give them 11 points, but it was Team Eager who romped home to win and become the fourth team on 10 points and their superior shots difference saw them crowned as this years Tarring Priory Triples Champions.
CONGRATULATIONS to the 2019 WINNERS
