Speaking of spots in the Grand final...

Division 2 - Geoff Blethyn Plate:
Preliminary finals have been run and won.
Jackson Pool
A Prlm Kevs_View 1 - 4 LucasGarth
Kev falls at the last hurdle, and was eliminated after 4 legs, with the last  leg a dead rubber.
So Lucas is in for the Pool Grand final next week against Sgt Butane.

Next week:
A Gr F SgtButane
-
LucasGarth

Jakovich Pool
B Prlm Ethan_Meldrum 2 - 1 AndrewGigacz
The tightest final in Div 2 was snared by Ethan. A Grand final showdown against Matt awaits.

Next week:
B Gr F MattSlutzkin
-
Ethan_Meldrum


Division 1 - Percy Jones Cup:
Now over in the Cup, we had two Semi finals... The first was to determine the first spot in the Grand final.
SF 1 Wal13Freo 4 - 0 DavPope
And Wal walked it in with a solid display. A week of and a Grand final berth his prize.
Dave now gets a second attempt at the Grand final as he plays next week in the Prelim.

The other Semi final was a cut-throat elimination affair... winner into the Prelim, and loser is out.
SF 2 Coldogs 2 - 2 TheHolyBoot
And this battle ended up 2-2, meaning we run to cumulative points from actual margin.
And by this method we find the result as:
   Col   267-252   Boot 

John continues his giant killing run from 5th, and now plays Dave in the Prelim.
For Col, its a title defence well conducted, but ultimately ended early.

We will have a new Percy Cup winner in 2014.

Cumulative points breakdown:
     Boot:   56 + 46 + 20 + 87 + 43 
     Col:   36 + 37 + 65 + 85 + 44

That one game where Col was 65 points out (Blues v Suns) the key difference.

Next week:
Prlm DavPope

8 AUG:
All the tips are in...

[As Yet Un-Named] League Cup - Quarter Final 2:
Important set of tips. Both players not in regualr season finals, so a silverware chance rests onm these numbers.
SJHRoss
J_Foreigner
Hawthorn 50 Hawthorn 63
SMFC/Sydney -30 SMFC/Sydney -21
FFC/W Bulldogs -20 FFC/W Bulldogs -1

For the regular season tips, if your name and choices are grey shaded, then you are part of the Peter Landy 'Each of two' Repechage Lighting Premiership.

Division 1 - Percy Jones Cup:
For Wal and Dave, a spot in the Grand Final hinges on the margins alone as both players tipped the same winners. Interestingly, Dave is under no all tips... Will we have a close round of footy?

The Boot has been struck down with flu, but has still been able to muster his charges for another do-or-die finals match, and with one tip different to Col (and two very close), this looks a treat of a matchup.


Division 2 - Geoff Blethyn Plate:

The Sarge and Matt both tipped but sit out real action as they are waiting for next weeks Pool Grand finals. Playing then next week will be either..

Kev or Lucas who go head to head for that last spot, with two different winners tipped, and
Ethan or Gigz, again both good tippers all year, and only one key difference.
Margins as always critical in FMITL.
