Nearly a shock on the cards but Stoney prevail

The penultimate round of games almost produced a shock for leaders Stoney #1 where they just managed to “grab” the 2 points by the skin of their teeth from a very inspired Laurencekirk team who if truth be told were unfortunate not to win.

St.Cyrus kept up the pressure by winning 21-9 against Portlethen BC. Fettercairn produced a fine win against Auchenblae, other winners were Drumlithie, Portlethen IBC & Johnshaven.

The last week of the campaign sees the leaders Stoney #1 up against an inform Fettercairn team who will undoubtedly give them a torrid time and with St.Cyrus playing Johnshaven who also had a good win. The outcome is far from settled.

Results: Drumlithie 20-6 Inverbervie, Fettercairn 33-5 Auchenblae, Portlethen IBC 15-6 Newtonhill, Johnshaven 14-11 S/Haven BC #2, Laurencekirk 14-16 S/Haven BC #1, Portlethen 9-21 St Cyrus.

Fixtures March 8: Inverbervie v Auchenblae, Drumlithie v S/Haven BC #2, Fettercairn v S/Haven BC #1, Portlethen v Newtonhill, Johnshaven v St Cyrus, Laurencekirk v Portlethen IBC.
