Division 1 - Percy Jones Cup:
Wal sat by awaiting the winner of the Qualifying Final, and hoping it wasnt his arch rival from 2013 Col...
Qual DavPope 2 - 1 Coldogs
... Dave does the job and moves through to the 1st Semi Final - for a crack at the Grand Final.

Col uses his double chance and drops into the 2nd Semi Final to meet he winner of the Elimination Final...
Elim Amul82 1 - 2 TheHolyBoot
John defeats Emile and progresses, while Emile takes solace in 5th. A big return for a player who finished 8th in 2013.

Division 2 - Geoff Blethyn Plate:
Over in the Mark Jackson Pool, Kev and the Sarge were up for direct entry to the Grand Final... and progressing was...
A Qual Kevs_View 1 - 3 SgtButane
... The Sarge scores a nice win, gets the week off and direct entry to the Final.

Kev with the double chance meets the winner of the Elimination Final...
A Elim LucasGarth 2 - 2 LaurenceRosen
...errm a draw! So using the tiebreaker rule (rule 4.2 et al), we see the nett margin difference as:
      Lucas 164 def Laurence 173
So close!!!
That sees Laurence bow out, while Lucas plays Kev next week.

And in the Allen Jackson Pool, Ethan and Matt were also fighting for a Grand Final spot...
B Qual Ethan_Meldrum 0 - 4 MattSlutzkin
A big win for Matt, and Ethan misses that chance.

Ethan now plays the Elimination Final winner...
B Elim AndrewGigacz 2 - 2 Supermercado99
...errm another draw! Another tiebreaker (rule 4.2 et al), where the nett margin difference as:
      Andrew 148 def Adam 193

The end of the road for Fisted FC. and Gigz plays Ethan next week!
