In the 4 weeks since the league started we have seen a lot of movement to the upper part of the table. Floresta Foresters, who were league winners after week 1 were displaced by week 2 and reinstated after week 3 with Pedras Panthers hot on their heals 2 points behind. So what impact did week 4's result have on the leaderboard?
Pedras Panthers took on Valverde Vipers at home in Pedras and produced some very good bowling to win 8/6 but by a very narrow score of 56 shots to 49 against. I'm sure some of these wins could have gone either way. While the other Valverde team played Balaia Whalers in Valverde and took full points. The results from the 2 respective matches saw their position on the leaderboard switched from last week with Valverde Veterans in second and Pedras Panthers in third. Floresta Foresters came head to head with Alvor Lynx and managed to come away with a 12/2 win while over in Alvor the Floresta Rangers battled hard to come away with 4 points from a strong Alvor Lepards side. So after all the drama Floresta Foresters are currently in first place followed by Valverde Veterans and Pedras Panthers in third.
This week’s matches of particular interest will be the head-to-head between Valverde Veterans and Pedras Panthers and Floresta Foresters away on grass to Alvor Lions. Hopefully, jacks will roll again at 11.00 in wonderful Algarvian weather.
