So... CUP FINAL MATCHUP

22. GRAND FINAL-ISM

Aug 21:

So we have our finals run and won... but before going there - lets look at the developing situation in the Lightning Premiership.

With Wal not tipping he scores zero and drops from 1st to 11th, and the newbie (and Corey McKernan-esque, ineligible) Capper is in the lead with a 2 point buffer. This rise is built on the back of being 1 point off the Saints winning margin and 2 off the Dogs margin. Bonuses bring reward!

Last years winner Ichymochek is interestingly placed in 4th and ready to pounce with 1 week to play.


Into the Grand Finals now, and lets start with...

DIVISION 4
GRAND FINAL
@TJMillar14,@RankingSW2
TJ scores the win and promotion to div 3. An amazing outcome as RankSW was very close to actual margins, and within 2 goals on 4 of the five games. But TJ shaded him on the first game to score a bonus, and went close to another bonus in the last.
TJ wins the (virtual) Mark Jackson Shield.

RankSW can fight on for Division 3 rights next week in this match-up.
D3 / D4 PROMOTION - RELEGATION BATTLE
@JoshCPinn-@RankingSW



DIVISION 3
GRAND FINAL
@MatterOfStats2,@Swishtter2
25.625.4
What a contest. It finishes 2-all, but under the MAE rule Swish wins by 0.2 points. This is just a single point spread across the five games that separated these two players. The closest contest ever seen in FMITL history. Head on up to Division 2, Swish, and take your Allen Jakovich Trophy with you.

MoS will need to try again to move to Division 2 next week.

DIVISION 2
GRAND FINAL
@LucasGarth2,@Supermercado992
25.227.4
Another tied contest here and again split by MAE. Mercado misses out but after two agonizing runner-up titles, Lucas is finally up and into Div 1. Well played, consistent tipping gets a reward. At last, Lucas gets his hands on the Geoff Blethyn Plate.

For Mercado, its "mate against mate" and etc etc... as you all know from that NRL stuff. A promoters dream.
D1 / D2 PROMOTION - RELEGATION BATTLE
@Amul82-@Supermercado99


DIVISION 1
GRAND FINAL
@MarkDuffett1,@SgtButane6
This match-up kicked off with Mark scoring first on Friday night, but then on Saturday it turned in spectacular fashion with the Sarge hitting an exact. It was still open for Mark right up to the last game where if he tipped an exact he would win it. Instead the Sarge got another bonus on the last to end the Div 1 grand final in a rout.
Enjoy the view from the top while you grasp the Percy Jones Cup, Sarge!


NEXT WEEK
  - all the promotion / relegation games listed above,
  - the last roll of the dice for the Lightning Premiership 
  - and its also Cup Final day where Mark can atone for today's loss when he tackles DioBrown in the all-SA final

Division One no-shows are the worst and should be sent down a division.
