Brock B proved to be very sociable hosts as they lost 11-2 at home to the Brick B, losing the last 8 legs in the process. The noisy Brick B crew rose to the top of the league as a result. It is often said that cream rises to the top, but coincidentally so does scum!
Meanwhile the Catford Cyphers secured their second win of the season 9 – 4 at home to the Nap B and remain in last place in the standings. It must be said that this was quite a triumph after some of the heavy defeats they have endured lately . The Napier B team, however, will hope for better fortune against the Brock Soc B next week. Something has to give in this basement ’26 pointer’ (is that even a thing?) as both of these teams have yet to manage a 7 point haul this summer.
The Nap A got back on the rails after hitting the buffers of late with a fine 9 – 4 win at home to the Brock Soc A. The Brockley A side have slipped up lately more often than Arjen Robben in goose fat and have a tough home game up next, against the Brick A.
Everyone’s favourite venue, the Royston Club, played host to another close game as the Maple Tree made the short ‘Lindy Hop’ to the Penge Trades. At first the Penge lads fell behind, but they mounted a superb comeback to win by the odd game.
The quirks of the fixture computer, combined with us all wasting an evening watching Luis ‘Chewy’ Suarez destroy a toothless England, have meant that the Penge Trades have 6 home games out of the first 9. So come the back nine, they will have to dust off their satnavs and reacquaint themselves with local cabbies and venture out of SE20 in pursuit of points on the road.
Given this week’s major sporting talking point, I wonder if the committee has considered the unlikely event of biting on the oche. I have heard of a few (alleged) maneaters in the League, but has anyone heard of any unnecessary and unwelcome mastication action in the League’s illustrious history? If so, I think we should be told!!
Bare your teeth, but just to smile!
