The six leagues are drawing to their conclusion, with Hardly Athletic even notching up their first win of the season on 16 April in the third division. The semi-finals of the Wednesday Cup, which Hardly Athletic crashed out of in the first round, will take place this Wednesday.
The third division still has representation in the Cup, however, in the form of Jesmond Tutu FC, who’ll take on Pique Blinders from Division Two. The winner of this match will play either Dyslexic Untied or Agrics FC in the final on 9 May, wrapping up the Intra Mural season. The Saturday Cup final takes place on 5 May.
Jesmond Tutu’s 7-a-side team are also in action, having won their league to book themselves a place in the playoffs. The finals of this eight-team contest will take place this Wednesday.
The 16 5-a-side teams range in performance from Fifty Shades of O’Shea, who have lost all five games this term and have a goal difference of -64, to the unbeaten Daves Wok 5s with their goal difference of 40.
Once the league was out of the way attention turned to the playoffs, with Anonymous, who came a very close second in the Tuesday league, claiming the victory.
It was a clean sweep for the Medics in the mid-week netball, with their various teams winning all three leagues and the end-of-season playoffs.
It was a more mixed bag in the Saturday leagues although all three divisions had a Medics side with at least six points to their name.
Charlie’s Angles were unbeaten in the 10am division and claimed first place, while History’s Saturday team scored some massive victories over the course of the season to take the 11am title. Law claimed the 12pm title in a closely-fought campaign, but in the playoffs across all three divisions it was the Medics who came out victorious.
A goal difference of 165 wasn’t enough to clinch the title for Agrics 1, who lost a match, and the league title, to the Cheeky Ladies just before Easter. Their attention now turns to the playoffs, which come to a conclusion this Wednesday.
