With only a couple of weeks remaining in the season, here is the latest ‘Six Points’ to keep you up to date with all the action across the leagues!
Tight at the Top
Three teams are tied at the top of the AFL London Men’s Conference as the Clapham Demons, Wimbledon Hawks and Shepherds Bush Raiders all battle it out.
Over the weekend the Raiders lost their second game of the season against the Wandsworth Demons and face both their closest rivals over the last two rounds of the season. Meanwhile, the Clapham Demons (pictured) put in a resounding performance to beat the North London Lions by just three points while the Hawks saw off the London Swans.
It’s going to be tough to pick a winner come finals if it goes down to these three!
Wildcats to Lose?
The West London Wildcats don’t look like faltering as they improved to 6-0 this season with a comprehensive win over bottom of the ladder Regents Park Lions. This moves them eight points clear of the Wandsworth Demons in the hunt for the Men’s Premiership Grand Final.
However, the Demons must face their two closest opponents over the last two rounds, so prepare for some finals warm-ups as they play the Demons and then finish up against the Lions.
Playing for Second in Women’s Premiership
It was a perhaps pivotal weekend in the Women’s Premiership as the West London Wildcats caught up to the North London Lions tied for second in the ladder. They both trail the Wandsworth Demons who remain unbeaten, but the Wildcats’ win by forfeit over the Wimbledon Hawks saw them put the pressure on the Lions who lost to the Demons.
The Wildcats must play both teams above them over the final two rounds and will be hoping for strong performances to prepare them for finals.
Swans On Course for Revenge
The London Swans may be eight points clear at the top of the AFL London Women’s Conference ladder, but they must play their two closest rivals over their final two rounds if they are to be crowned minor premiers.
After a three-week break, the division concludes over back-to-back weekends with the Swans looking to gain revenge for their one point defeat in the Grand Final last season.
Demons Dominant; Three-Way Tie Behind Them
The South London Demons are dominant in the Men’s Social, leading by four points over the London Swans with these two playing each other next weekend.
The two teams below them faced off over the weekend in a potential finals match-up, with the Reading Kangaroos running out 9.7 (61) to 5.3 (33) winners over the Bounds Green Lions. This means a three-way tie for second, with the Swans holding a game in hand advantage over the other two.
Excitement Builds For Finals
Whatever division you’re playing in, or keeping track of, it looks like an exciting finals are in store. The Demons currently top four of the Divisions, but there are contenders behind looking for strong finishes to their season or even eyeing finals upsets!
