Hello fellow competitors!
Week two of Superleague was a blast! (although a tad chilly). Here are the scores from November 20th along with the overall standings and scorers table.

I would like to thank everyone for coming out to play and umpire and we will hopefully see you this Sunday, December 4th, for the final event of this trilogy!
