The Dart Alex Alexander Memorial Trophy competition on Saturday saw the Advance Fire & Plumbing Buccaneers secure their position on top of the league table with a comfortable win over the John Doak Architecture Iguanas.
The Iguanas had a chance to draw first blood, but the penalty kick was wide. The Buccaneers soon responded with a penalty of their own before the Iguanas found the try line to make the score 7-3.
The Buccaneers secured another kickable penalty to make it a one point margin before taking the lead thanks to a Joel Clark try. They took command from then.
The Iguanas kept it a tight contest with a further try from fly half Daniel O’Connor, but a final minute try from the Buccaneers robbed the Iguanas of a chance to secure a bonus point loss. Buccaneers won 27-17.
The day’s second game was another nail-biter between the Queensgate Pigs Trotters and the Fidelity Cayman Storm, with the Pigs Trotters edging the Cayman Storm.
The Pigs Trotters looked to be in control for large parts of the game, with Justin Wight barging his way through the Storm back line.
By the end of the third quarter, it looked as if the Pigs Trotters were going to march away comfortable winners, but a fourth-quarter comeback from the Storm secured a losing bonus point.
In the end, it was an opportune try from Pigs Trotters fly half Shaun McDermott, who separated the teams for a 26-19 victory.
The win for the Pigs Trotters sees them jump to second place in the standings, with the Storm dropping to third place.
