BACKS TO THE WALL AS DAVID HAT-TRICK EARNS A POINT (SICM Sevens)

Last night’s key game as far as the title is concerned, featured the top two, as Lions took on Crestwood. Going into the fixture with a six-point lead, plus a game in hand, a win would have put the treble-holders in a very strong position as they attempt to retain their title.

However, another shock was recorded, as the much-improved Crestwood took all three points in a big scoring game. Ben Jones scored a hat-trick for the Lions but the same from Joe Colley and Kyle Smith ensured that the stripes close the gap at the top.

Kingsbourne took on Brandhall in the knowledge that they could leap-frog them into third place should they record their first ever win against them. In the end it was a hard-fought game, with a David Wall hat-trick ensuring that the teams stay in their respective league places.

Stranded at the bottom, and no doubt disappointed with throwing away a three goal half-time lead last week, Tipton had the chance to do something about it as they took on the team directly above them in the table. And coming from 2-0 down to take a 4-2 lead they must have been confident of recording their first ever win against Rob Bradley‘s team.

However, a great comeback, ensured that it was the hoops who took the points. In the process they also passed the 75 goals scored in their SICM Sevens history. And if you wonder where all these great stats come from, check SICM Sevens Stats site out. It’s run by Dan Spear and is a mine of fantastic information.
