Elise Archer Club Championships

The 2018 Club Championship is sponsored by our friend, Elise Archer. Cripps Waratah are the defending champion. The Club Championship promotes Club spirit, pride and commitment. The Elise Archer Club Championship award will be presented at the STNA Presentation Evening on Saturday 1st of September.

Round 16 of the Club Championship saw Glendon Kingston Blues win 13 out of their 20 games to take the round win and keep the pressure on ladder leaders Cripps Waratah.
AYC Co-op Toyota came in second, and would have taken top points if they had managed to complete the comeback that they almost pulled off in their 15b match against Kingston White. 14-28 down at 3/4 time, they had cut the deficit to 6 halfway through the last quarter before just falling short.
Cripps Waratah, St Lukes Health Karana, Tassal Huon Valley and Cooper Automotive Kilburn took the rest of the multiple points, with Huon moving up a place on the ladder over MMib Palena Panthers.
The Club Championships results will be embargoed for the remaining four rounds, with the winner revealed at the presentation dinner.

Round 12 of the Club Championship, which included the catchup games played the week before, saw Cooper Automotive Kilburn have their second victory for 2018, winning 16 out of the 19 games they played and jumping them into second place overall.

2nd Grade White's win over OHA in the rain on Saturday was just enough to keep the club above second placed Tassal Huon Valley, who could have had a clean sweep if they had won their close Premier League match on Wednesday night. Cripps Waratah had another solid week to claim third, while AYC Co-op Toyota's 11 out of 19 saw them take fourth.
