Title Hopes Dashed for Ruislip

A PASSIONATE Ruislip Eagles performance got the final day of the season off to a flier when they hammered Nottingham University 46-16 - but it was to end in disappointment with rivals Great Dane pipping them to the Men’s title.

Ruislip went into their final game of the season 13 goals behind leaders Great Dane. And knowing that goal difference could be key in the title run in, Ruislip came out of the blocks firing on all cylinders and raced into a four-goal lead within four minutes.

But Nottingham played hard and refused to roll over and scored some good goals, but Ruislip were still ahead 21-11 at half time.

However, their lack of substitutes began to tell after the break and Nottingham’s hopes drifted away.

Ruislip continued to dominate and with every goal that went in increasing their chances of snatching the title, they were met with increasingly rapturous cheers. When the final whistle blew with the score at 46-16 a number of the team collapsed joyously on the floor.

However with all still riding on the final game between Great Dane and Salford the initial wild celebrations were slowly reined in to await the outcome of that game.
