Second Round ResultsThree teams got through to round three by default, those teams being Cliffe Woods 1, Luton Invicta 3 and Chatham Belfast.
Of the 13 matches that were played three resulted in winning margins which can be put down to handicapping errors (these will be adjusted in future rounds). These matches were a 79 point win for Howard 6, a 78 point win for Chatham Endurance and a 73 point win for Rainham 5.
Three more matches were decided by larger margins than could have been foreseen and these will be looked at carefully. Rainham 4 beat Chatham Cumberland by 60 points but Cumberland did have to play a player from Furious in this match. Howard 5 beat Luton Invicta 4 by 55 points and Howard 4 beat Howard 1 by 53 points but this match was marred by circumstances that resulted in teams being adjusted to at least get a match.
The remaining 7 games were mainly close matches with only an average of about 2 points a leg or less deciding the final outcome. Chatham Gannet beat Luton Invicta 5 by 45 points, Upnor A beat their clubmates Upnor D by 24 and Rainham 1 beat Howard three by 17 points.
The last four games were really close being decided by 10 points or less. Chatham Ark Royal beat Rainham 3 by 10 points in a match where Chatham's lead was never more than 14 points. Cliffe Woods 3 beat Sturdee 1 by 8 but Cliffe were never in front until the end of the 7th game. Boxley 2 beat Chatham Furious by 6 points in a match where two games ended all square and Furious were never in front. Sturdee 2 lost to Anchorians 5 by a mere 2 points but were up against it from the start when they trailed by 14 points after the first game and although they steadily closed the gap they could never quite get over the line.
