Completed With Accolades
What a season! 30th October marked the end of the Women’s premier league, and for sure it was a celebratory and pulsating season for our ladies!
After winning an away game 8-0 the previous week, the morale of our top ladies’ team had reached its highest point in a while. The momentum did not just stop there! The team overshadowed USRC-A at their final home game 6-2 and finished the season on a high note for winning the First Runner-up spot ahead of the third placed team by 9 points!
Meanwhile, our Ladies’ B and C achieved another sensational season! After the first half of the season, both teams were (at a point in time) at the bottom of the league table and were in danger of getting relegated from their respective divisions. Yet, both team’s fighting spirit was evident in every game. Despite a slow start earlier, the ladies never gave up and managed a strong fightback. Eventually, after the last game of the season, both teams were secured in Division 2 and 3 respectively. Well done!
As at 6th November, four-men teams have completed the 2021 campaign, with the A and B sides at 5th and 7th of Division 1 and the C and D sides at 3rd of Divisions 3 and 6, whilst the E and F sides, currently at 4th and and 7th in Divisions 7 and 8, will play their last games on 27th November.
Both the C and D sides did remarkably well in the second half of the campaign by winning six of the nine games in their respective divisions, of which the D side won four with maximum 8 points and was in contention for promotion before the last game, with a gap of 4 points. Despite D side’s last game being won away with the maximum 8 points, promotion was missed as the 2nd team also won by the same margin.
Congratulations to James Cheuk, Anson Wong, KK Law, Raymond Tso and David Phu of Men’s D Side for being the Champion Rink by winning 16 out of 18 games of the campaign! Very well done indeed!
The Premier League will resume in April/ May 2022. Yet, it doesn’t mean our bowlers will have a relaxing winter break as the Triples League is coming! Are you ready to show your fist in December?
