Onchan A Express Still On Track

This time it was Castletown B who had to feel the wrath of the defending champions, who have now pulled away at the top of the table with sixteen points now between them and second placed Marown A.

The result was not as one sided as it seems, however, as a reverse of two 21-20 wins to the home side could have been the ending to a very different story.

Port St Mary A are on a charge and are on equal points with Douglas having played a game less. They had their own 10-0 maximum win over Ballaugh A to really put some steam behind their season. They are now only four points behind South and will hope to make use of their extra game to leapfrog the two teams above them.

Whilst not out of the relegation dogfight just yet Port Erin A find themselves in the relative safety of ninth place after a good 7-3 home win over Nobles A leaves their opponents flagging behind them.

Port St Mary B had their own 7-3 win away at Onchan B to move on to level points with Douglas and keep themselves well in the hunt for glory. Its going to be a race to the finish with all of these teams perfectly positioned to take top spot.
