A would be wrapped up with Smack My Pitch Up versus
Shallow Hals. The game had a lot riding on it
– both teams were looking for their first win
and both were looking to make the Plate. Smack
My Pitch Up only had to avoid defeat courtesy
of their draw against the San Torrei Stags. Shallow
Hals had to win!
first goal was always likely to be crucial and
it was Shiva Tiwari of Smack My Pitch Up who claimed
it. He bagged a second and when Nathan Anderson
made it 3-0 at half-time the writing was on the
wall for Shallow Hals who would now need at least
4 goals. There was a fat lady gargling pitch-side.
began singing though when Tiwari completed his
hat-trick, Terry Beattie and Marc Scott hit Shallow
Hals for six. Every cloud has a silver lining
and though and that came in the form of Shallow
Hals breaking their scoring duck – stand up Thomas
Munson – take a bow. Final score, 6-1.
