Top stuff from both teams!
Cheshire Premier and Cheshire A-team both travelled to West Midlands today to play the final group games of the season. The A-team had already sealed top spot in the group before a bowl was sent, but were determined to finish the group strongly and make it 6 wins from 6 games. This they duly did with a fantastic 24-16 win. This means that they go straight into the quarter finals on the weekend of 14/15 February.
The Premier team had already qualified for the knockouts, but top spot in the group was still up for grabs. 13 points was the magic number to win the group and go straight into the quarters without the hassle of a prelim game. This would be no easy task at a venue that we have struggled at in the past. However at half time the score was 9-7 to Cheshire so 4 more points were needed! This was sealed in session 3 to leave the score 15-13 to Cheshire and therefore top spot in the group was sealed. A fantastic fourth session saw us eventually win the match 25-15, one of our best performances of the season. Up next is a quarter final match against either Kent or Hereford on 22nd February.
Overall a great day for the County, and both teams have 100% records in the group. Something we can all be very proud of!
