Final League Results

After an exciting run in in which four teams were in with a chance of winning the title until just before the end of the season, UCC Blues just pipped Robin Hood to the top spot on the final night of the league season.  Prior to the matches, UCC were two points ahead of Robin Hood, but with an inferior points difference.  This meant that if UCC Blues lost to the Masons, Robin Hood could take the title on points difference by beating Millstone.

UCC Blues did their best to make this happen, throwing away an 11 point lead to lose to Masons by 2 points, but Robin Hood did not manage to pull off a win, despite being ahead of Millstone for much of the match.  This meant that Millstone finished second, with Masons in third and Robin Hood in fourth, with only two points seperating the top four teams.
