22. Grand Chance!

24 AUG:
The race for the Premier titles has been run and won.

But first to review other events.

Peter Landy 'Each Of Two' Repechage Lighting Premiership
With 1 round to play, the 'Each of Two' is indeed a race between two players.
Both Sean and Mark sit on 18 and are in the box seat for the title.
Not to be outdone though is FMI with 17 and a superior MAPE. Further back we have Smokie and Johnny as genuine 'smokies', just 2 points back.

Remember its points for correct tips AND bonuses and exacts that count... get near the pin and you could still steal this title.

Movers this week were Sean and Ichymocheck, both collecting 6 points, while a raft of players scored 5 (Mark, FMI, Smokie, Go-Saints, LunchBunch, Carlo and Jonny).

Speaking of bonus points...

Daniher Bros Silver Squeegees for inside the window...
Three players all scored two bonus games this round.

 and these three all got one tip in the bonus window...


PLUS all four new players (SmokieDawson Go-Saints, LunchBunch, and Ichymocheck) also score a bonus by picking very close to the exact margin.


[As Yet Un-Named] League Cup - Quarter Final 4:
It was a chance for both players to progress not only to next weeks semi-finals, but also 'do the double' as Wal and The Boot squared off in this quarter final.

And progressing through was...
R 22 Wal13Freo 1
TheHolyBoot 2

Wal got away to a 1 point lead, but Boot scored in the last two to win his way through.
The Boot now meets the 3rd Quarter final winner, Mark.

DIV 2 GRAND FINAL
GEOFF BLETHYN PLATE
In 2013 the Plate was an extra event run for players missing out on the finals. With the advent of more players, the Plate moved to Division two, while the new lightning premiership takes over the plates former role.

So we were always bound to have a new Plate champion in 2014, and this year it came down to a fight between The Sarge and Matt.

A tough encounter was has, with the Sarge going 1 ahead, but Matt firing back with two in the next leg.
The last 3 legs though were all the Sarge's though, so he wins the Plate and admission to Division 1 in 2015.
Plate SgtButane 4 - 2 MattSlutzkin

Congratulations Sarge, bad luck Matt.

Matt has 1 more game next week in the first ever FMITL Promotion / Relegation match against @A_OKeefe (9th in Div 1).


DIV 1 GRAND FINAL
PETER 'PERCY' JONES CUP
This season saw the two old-stagers from last year head the leader board for most of the year... 2013 Champion Col and runner up Wal.
As we went thru the finals, Col fell early, while Wal continued.
His challenger for the crown rose up from 5th, 1980 Magpies style, to meet in the Grand Final.

For this title, another tough match-up was the order of the day...
Wal scored early, but John stuck back with two more. At the end of Saturdays play, Wal had scored again to tie up the game.
It all hinged on the Richmond margin, and with the Tigers at one stage 50 points up, it al looked like a Wal win, but a spurt by the Saints robbed Wal of another point and made him the bridesmaid again
Gr F Wal13Freo 2 - 3 TheHolyBoot

The fairy tale of winning from 5th proved true and we crown John as our 2014 Champion.


OK... still a few more games to come.
   - Last round and last chance to win in the side competitions.
   - Round 23 also is the all important Promotion / Relegation match, and also
   - The two Semi Finals of the League Cup.

It is still all at FMITL Headquarters.
