Forest Take Girls Group B Title!

Foresters ease into play-offs as group winners - reigning champs Timberley also qualify along with Parkfield and Paget.

Lea Forest's girls scored 18 goals in three games at a cold, damp, Power League on Wednesday evening and in the process nabbed the divisional title as well as booking themselves a slot in the League Play-off Finals at the end of March.
Forest opened with an 8-2 dispatch of Parkfield before securing a 3-0 win against Paget in a much closer affair. The Kitts Green girls then put 7, without reply, past St Matthew's, sauntering to the Group B title.
Defending champions, Timberley, also enjoyed maximum points from their three games. St Matt's were beaten 7-0, a battling Parkfield scored twice in a 5-2 defeat, before The Timbers came from a goal down to beat a valiant Paget side, 3-1. Timberley qualify for the play-offs as group runners-up.
Parkfield's 2-0 win over Alum Rock rivals Highfield, meant they finished third in the group to book a play-offs berth for themselves and Paget will join them; a 2-0 defeat of Highfield was enough to grab the fourth-placed play-off spot.
St Matthew's can feel a tad unfortunate to have missed out on the play-offs as despite a 2-1 victory over Highfield, the 13 points accumulated, falls two short of Parkfield's 15.
So, Lea Forest, Timberley, Parkfield and Paget join already qualified Harper Bell (from Group A) on play-offs night but will have to wait until Wednesday 7th March to see who will accompany them as any three from Short Heath, Hillstone, Rosary, Blakenhale and Erdington Hall can still make it through.

Where next?

Youths Fire Into Title Mix! Huge win for Yardley over Bernie's. Bad night for Matt's as they go down twice. Bernie's remain in hunt despite setback.
Bell Girls Secure Play-offs Spot! Bell top table after 6-point haul. Short Heath still in divisional title hunt.
