Minotaurs Hang On To Win

In the second game of Round 1 of the Super League, Minotaurs of Div 1 managed to squeeze (socially distanced of course) past Marauders of Div 2.

In the first pair of games Minotaurs Bernard & new recruit Amanda were up against Marauders Phil & Rob. After a close opening sector of the game, Minotaurs pair managed to pull away to take the game 13-7. In the other game, Minotaurs Vickie & Pete were pitched against Gareth & Michelle. Minotaurs established a 6-1 lead before Marauders started to pull back and with the score at 11-11. Minotaurs grabbed the 2 points necessary for a win putting Minotaurs up by 2-0 at the halfway point. 

The floodlights were switched on as the second pair of games began. Bernard & Amanda started reasonably well and were holding their own against Gareth & Michelle but then had a bad end, leaking 5 points. This seemed to deflate Minotaurs and Marauders ran out as comfortable winners by 13-4. In the final game, Vickie & Pete started well and built up a good lead. As seems to be the way in the majority of the Super League games so far, Marauders clawed their way back but with Minotaurs leading 9-7 they managed to take 4 points of what proved to be the final end giving them a 13-7 win.

Special mention goes to Amanda who put in some excellent pointing in her first competitive match to help Minotaurs to a 3-1 win and the top of the League after Round 1.
