Short Heath Girls Snatch Group A Crown!

Heathens pip Bell to title. Rosary qualify for play-offs. Erdington Hall sneak in at Hillstone's expense.

A perfect nine points from three games at Power League, Yardley on Wednesday evening, was enough for Short Heath to leap-frog over Harper Bell and take the girls' league Group A title.
The Heathens began the evening six points off leaders Harper Bell, but 3-0 wins over E-ACT Nechells and Hillstone allied with a 4-0 victory against Brookfields, secured the Group A crown in the side's first season in the league.
Heath's 3-0 defeat of Hillstone was costly for the latter, as at the end of proceedings they found themselves pipped to a play-off spot by Erdington Hall - courtesy of Hall's better goal difference. Hall did help themselves however with a shock 4-3 win over Rosary in what was a right old ding-dong of a game.
Rosary made sure of third spot in the table and a play-off berth, as they dispatched Blakenhale, 6-1.
Blakenhale's own play-offs ambitions disappeared as they were held 2-2 by a vastly improved E-ACT Nechells side; E-ACT were enthusiastically coached throughout the game and raced into a two-goal lead but 'hale pegged them back to snatch a point. The defeat to Rosary then capped off a disappointing evening for Blakenhale.
The line-up for the play-offs evening at Power League, Yardley, on Wednesday 28th March, is as follows -
Group A - Short Heath, Lea Forest, Erdington Hall and Paget.
Group B - Harper Bell, Timberley, Rosary and Parkfield.
Top two in each group through to semi-finals.
All to play for on the penultimate day of this term.

Where next?

Hale Maintain Title Pace! Blakenhale stay top after win. Brownmead win and stay hot on 'hale's heels. Rosary go third after 4-point haul.
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.
