Seconds out, E-Round 2 [12/Dec/19]

Results from Round 2 of the E-League, November, were published on the E-League website, see links in the E-League section of this site. There were also SEAL and SWWU wins for Imperial and Plymouth, maintaining their 100% records. These will be reviewed shortly.

As in E-League Round 1, Warwick and Birmingham were first and second and again it was Warwick who came out on top, amassing 2335 across the month. Birmingham missed out on a 2300 by a point. Loughborough's 2272 saw them land third, but they had a fight to edge out St Andrews by 1. Plymouth, Oxford and Exeter also broke 2200. The number of A teams now represented has risen from 22 to 25.

After 2 rounds, Warwick have 30 (from two 1sts) and Birmingham 28 (from two 2nds) points. Plymouth and St Andrews are third and fourth and look set to annihilate their previous bests in this competition, even allowing for the Divisional restructure. Exeter and Oxford make up the leading group of teams after two rounds.

The number of novice A teams has shot up from 12 to 21, perhaps a reflection of the difficulty of getting scores out of beginners before the end of October. Warwick won the round with 1440. Mirroring the senior result, Birmingham were second on 1375, with Cambridge's 1369 making it a BUTTS 1-2-3. However none of those three entered scores in Round 1 and Nottingham (who were top in Round 1) did not enter a score in Round 2. This left Napier sitting top on 26 points (2nd and 4th). Napier's novices are top by a full 8 points from Liverpool.

Warwick narrowly edged out De Montfort in the compound round. With a first and a second each, the two BUTTS league sides are now level on 39 points.

In terms of individuals Eleanor Piper (Birmingham) and William Pike (Warwick) both won again to sit on 40/40. Joe Tripp and Alex Rowe (both Plymouth) were second and third in the round, with Sherman Ip (Warwick) rising to second overall on 35. Sarah Allaway (Warwick) was second lady in the round, with Rebekah Tipping (Birmingham) third and holding on to second spot overall. Tripp and Allaway sit third overall.

Most of the other non-recurve divisions have clear leaders, except for gents barebow. Tom Walker (Birmingham) and Chris Norwood (De Montfort) have 36 points with Andrew Jones (Liverpool) on 35. Walker leads Norwood 1072-1071 on aggregate. Tia Mulholland (De Montfort) leads ladies barebow. Top compounds are currently Faye Balcombe (Leicester) and Kai Thomas-Prause (Warwick). Top longbows are currently Georgie Jones (Loughborough) and Stuart MacFarquhar (Southampton).

Round 3 of the E-League comes next. Scores can be shot any time in December or January and must be submitted by 5th February to count. Results are scheduled to come out around the 10th.
