In all 3 divisions of the 2010
Androgroup Summer Touch League the teams are starting to find their feet and
the dominance of the top teams is being strongly contested from all sides.
In Division 1 Genesis Five Nations
narrowly defeated DMS 2-0 to maintain their three game unbeaten run and top
billing in the division but moving into week 4, the league leaders will come up
against long time rivals Maples1 who managed to put five tries past a speedy
Appleby team in week 3. No doubt the encounter will leave tongues wagging in
Elsewhere in Division 1 CML climbed
to second place in the rankings with a hard fought 5-4 win over Harmonic whilst
PWC earned their first win of the season in emphatic fashion with a 6-3 bashing
In Division 2 Walkers Blue Iguanas
maintain their stranglehold by handing Rawlinson & Hunter their first
defeat of the season with a 9-1 hammering. While the Walkers victory was not
the largest winning margin of the week with UBS decimating Grizz’s Old Fellas
11-2 it was the fact that the lion’s share of the Blue Iguanas’ nine tries were
earned by their female contingent which impressed. Lisa Bird’s brace of tries
for Walkers sent her to the top of the ladies try scoring table.
KPMG1 were unlucky to fall short to
a lack lustre Campbells team by only one try after a good second half comeback
saw the accountants squander a handful of scoring opportunities to ensure that
Campbells earned their second win of the season. The all female Heineken Light
Maidens, like their KPMG counterparts were beaten by the slimmest of margins
Division 3 had its fair share of
close fought battles with DART, Island Heritage, Deloitte Un-Touche-Ables and
Trident Titans all recording draws during the week. DART were unlucky not to
secure a win over Trident Titans having opened up a 2-0 lead early on in the
game. However a strong come back from Trident resulted in a final 4-4 score. At
the same time, Island Heritage drew with Deloitte Un-Touche-Ables as a score from
Island Heritage in the final seconds of the game ensured that they were not subjected
to a third straight defeat.
The Titan Tickers made it three
wins from three with a tight 3-2 win over Global Captive Management but GCM
took home some glory from their loss with Andrew McKay’s two tries sent him to
the top of the male try scoring table.
At the bottom of the table Prime
Fund Solutions lost for the third time, against KPMG2. The deciding factor
between the teams being the stellar performance of Eric Ballenger whose
hat-trick sealed the day for KPMG.
