Mongrels net win over the benchmark Warriors
Last year’s premiership team, Mongrels had a shock loss to Slayers in the first week of the season and have had unconvincing wins in the following weeks but a convincing hard-fought win over ladder leaders in the Warriors shows they are back.
Mongrels won each of the three rounds 3–2 to finish 9–6 winners against Warriors, who up until now have easily been the benchmark of the competition.
Warriors previous results ensure they stay at the top of the ladder but only on percentage, just ahead of Stickmen and Mongrels.
Stickmen had a great finish against Recaholics. At 6–4 down going into the last round, they had a clean sweep of games to run out 9–6 winners to retain second position.
Wreckers had an easy 11–4 win against Animals, who put up little resistance with the exception of Steve Stewart, who won three from three in the losing side.
In the other match, Slayers jumped off the bottom of the ladder and relegated Punishers to that position by posting a 9–6 win against Punishers.
