Leeds Win York League!

Winners_Cup_01After two dramatic last matches Leeds have come out winners in the York League.  Having been second for a number of years this is the first time Leeds have managed to win the league.

Going into the final two matches the team needed a draw and a win to clinch the league.  Travelling away to the top of the league rivals, Wigginton 1, on Monday evening the team managed to get the 2-2 draw needed to keep the league open.  A number of the games were very tense with Wiggington knowing a 3-1 on the night would give them the league title.

The last match was played against Wetherby who have won the league for the past few seasons.  Leeds needed a 3-1 win on the night to take the league title.  Some nervous games ensued.  With the score at 2-1 to Leeds, and it getting dark, the last game went to a dramatic finish with both teams having opportunities to win the game.  Leeds finally came out on top to win the game 13-12 and consequently the league title on points difference from Wiggington 1.  Final scores and league table can be seen on the York League Page.

Thanks to everyone who took part and came along and supported during the season.  Well done!
