Talking of which … the New Weddington Isles still top the league, although the Isle of Lithua is still hot on their heels in 2nd spot and seriously contending for the top; with Ludenvic Lions and Shedingeh remaining unmoved in 3rd and 4th respectively - however things are getting tighter between the top four with only 2 points’ difference between them in weekly scores.
Things are getting interesting mid table too: with United Mathisian Kingdom top scoring for the week to move up 3 places to 5th spot, at the expense of Pikeland Holy Crusader who drop to 6th despite a decent weekly score, and a bad day at the office for Novascurra Jesters dropping from 6th to 8th, one place below Lehmark FC Legends who cement their place in mid-table with a solid 36 points.
Finally, at the other end of the table, the bottom four are battling to break into the higher levels and a fascinating mini-contest is developing… Maslatonia hang onto 9th place, whilst posting the lowest team score of the week at 16 points, whilst a rejuvenated Principality of Sealand scores exactly double that to lift themselves from bottom spot to 10th in a good week for them. This pushes H.E.R. Saints down one place to 11th with Espoona who are now bringing up the rear – though they can take heart in a much improved weekly score: 21 compared to a lowly 8 last week.
NEXT WEEK is the International Break – this means that there are NO Football games next weekend, with the season resuming on 11th September. So no need for panic stations: put your feet up, think about any tea. changes you might need to make before season restarts and if you have ANY questions feel free to post here or PM me.
I hope you are all enjoying the competition so far and I look forward to more battles in the rest of the coming season – remember it’s all about fun, micronational camaraderie… and that all-important Trophy!
