PHIL'S COMMENTS
Week 22 April 14TH The first round of the handicap cup draw proved to be as close as predicted this year, with all remaing teams having a fair chance of progression. Top match was the game at Radcliffe Cricket club but only just. With a huge 19 point handicap to overcome the hosts league champions Cricket club had to have the rub of the questions against the visiting Swan and Railway As. The visitors though were in no mood to give points away and had an excellent first half dropping just six points however the half time break brought on the nerves for the Swan As and they failed to score in round five, an eleven point round six steadied the ship somewhat. However the champions then began to haul the visitors handicap in a the chase was on but with questions running out the Swans held on valiantly to win an excellent match by just three points on the handicap, match score 50-34 but the handicap means the Swan As progress to the simi-finals with the final result of 50-53. Well done Swan As. Just pipped for match of the week was the tussle at Packhorse Affetside where the Rose and Crown Bury were the familiar visitors, with the Packhorse finishing third in the league the handicap may have been thought to favour the visitors but the home side have engineered a bandit handicap this year and it crucially favoured them a very close match ensued and with both teams finding scoring difficult the chase to haul back the handicap proved just to much for Rose Bury as they succumbed to a score of 40-37 final result with handicap of 43-37. The match at SunDial Walmersley Rd saw bi-annual cup winners Stopes Tavern visiting, (yes we have noticed it is a bi-annual year) The handicapping indicated this game could be a close affair & it proved to be the case for much of the match. With a 4 point advantage, the Sun Dial extended their lead to 6 points to lead 10-4 after round 1.The individual round saw Stopes narrow the defecit to 4 points with a full house to the 4 points of the Diallers, thanks to Tim Greens encyclopaedic knowledge of Drag Acts!!!!!!Rounds 3 & 4 saw the balance swing back to the Sun Dial & they extended their lead to finish the 1st half 8 points in front 26 18 & showing no signs of needing their handicap to wrestle a win from the in form Taveners.The eqillibrium was maintained in Round 6, but the stick or twist round proved to be pivotal & saw Stopes claw back 4 points to enter the final 2 rounds only 3 points behind at 35 32 The Pendulum continued to swing in the Tavenners favour in the individual round & they scored a full house plus a bonus point, to the Diallers 4 points & edged in to a 2 point lead 41 39 as the final round loomed.A nervous round 8 saw the Stopes Team of Roger Bolt, Tim Green, Bert Bullough & Paul Gardner extend their lead & run out 46 41 winners. Final first round match was between the preliminary round winners and saw the Swan and Railway Bs play the Rose and Crown Ramsbottom with the handicap being negligible in this match, just a point in favour of the home side, a straight game was on the cards but the home side have cup ambitions and are on a hot run of form also and Peter Taylors Rose Rammy side could not stay with the Swans as they glided gracefully away with the match scoring heavily 55-46 to win 56-46 and win team of the week. Week 23 Monday April 21rst The cup semifinal draw has thrown up the possible prospect of an all Swan and Railway final but both teams will have to fight all the way to achieve it. Top match has to be the game at Stopes Tavern with Swan Bs making the short trip across Radcliffe to visit and start with just a point advantage again but both teams are playing at there seasons best form and this will be a titanic battle to get through to the final. Paul Gardners Taverners have won the cup twice in the last four years and seem to always run into hot form this time of the year but the Swans have their eye on the silverware. Tough to call could be a last question thriller. Second semi-final has Sue Pinder and the Packhorse lads visiting the Swan As with an eight point start John Harriss Swans may just sit on their nest long enough to just and only just go through but it will not be easy as the visitors bandit status in the handicap could be the factor. An entertainning game which most neutral onlookers want the home Swans to win a piece of Silverware but the head says the deserving Packhorse just. Please note the final will start at 20-15 prompt on the night. Not at 20-30 as usual. Handicap Cup Draw. (Handicap points in brackets) Semi Final April 21rst Swan and Railway As (19) v PackHorse (11) Stopes Tavern (11) v Swan and Railway Bs (12)
