With both Crestwood and Lions winning last night, it’s all set for a showdown next Monday. As you can see from the table below, the group is going to the wire. Crestwood have the advantage, both in terms of points and goal difference, but once that whistle blows none of that will count for anything.
But back to last night’s games, Crestwood beat Brandhall 7-0 and Lions defeated Kingsbourne 8-2. Both impressive scores, but now it’s now it all goes down to the wire next week. And an interesting statistic (courtesy of Dan Spear www.SICMSevensStats.org) is that exactly six years ago the two teams competed in the same competition. On that day it was Brandhall who won convincingly, putting ten past their opponents and conceding just one in the process.

There was also a friendly taking place with a high-scoring victory for Dudley FC. Nick Harrold’s four goals would normally be the top mention of the evening, but Connor Potts excelled by finding the net eight times.
