S&D 2011 Victoria 2 v Norths
« on: May 03, 2011, 11:56:07 AM »
Smarty's barmy army hit the road again this evening hoping to prove that the ill fated Poynton trip was but a mere blip in the campaign.

Few can forget how the heroes from Hyde managed to win here in 2010 with just three winners:

http://www.cgleague.co.uk/archives/match.php?DB=A&L=SD&S=2010&D=B&H=11&A=5

The final league table from 2010 saw Victoria finish 40 points below tonights visitors. However, perhaps we cannot read too much into this statistic seeing as how the Norths personnel has changed so much for this year.

http://www.cgleague.co.uk/archives/tables.php?DB=A&

Returning to the here and now, 4th place Norths hold a slender lead on 7th place Victoria of 4.5 points. The difference here though could perhaps be attributed to Victoria having played two of their three matches so far away from home, whilst the visitors have mainly had the benefit of a rather large hill.

http://www.cgleague.co.uk/archives/tables.php?DB=B&L=SD&S=2011

Speaking of large hills, Victoria are of course noted for having a sizable hill of their own but unlike the steady incline at ToN it features as a crown with the centre being the highest point.

In Victoria's only home match so far they saw off the Springers challenge winning by 9 points to 6. We all know from experience that away wins in B division can be difficult to achieve and I expect this evening to be no different.

Last week saw the Norths team ravaged by holidays, and the replacements will perhaps be wondering if they will hold onto the shirt.

No player from either team has managed to win all three matches so far, so this might perhaps indicate that victories here are possible if we are digging in and performing to the maximum.

Thoughts, comments and predictions are all welcome.

Last weeks sunseekers are back but Skull/Tiddles/Griz (nickname not finalized yet) is missing so one of the replacements has hung on to his shirt
I didn't lose my marbles, I swapped them for a set of 2-10's

3 winners on the road........ Skip dug in hard and crept over the line against a good opponent- golden shovel to you.

Well done to Wolfy who won there having never seen the green. Near misses for Peggy and Macca.

Cheers Smiffy

Tough green, some of our lads struggled to find the happy balance of line and length. Young Witty and I got our money's worth going to all-but across, enjoyed the game, pity we couldn't get the agg like we did last last year

Well done to the Norths winners especially Wolfy  ;)

I am so annoyed with myself  ;jack I was 19 - 18 down and i had the block, 2 terrible woods lost me the end too 1. Then Bob throws the jack off and i have chance to set my own mark  :) Bob delivers and makes a hash of it, right i thought now's my chance  ;D 2 yards short  :-\ Bob goes again and sticks one 3 feet from the block, i then deliver my last wood (yes last wood) and once again makes a hash of it, yard and half through  :'(

My own fault, enjoyed the game with Hammy, just annoyed with myself  ;jack
