It could have been oh so different. In a day where very little went our way, the Sharks lost to fellow playoff contenders, the Jets and Eagles and missed out on a trip to the semi-finals/finals.
The day started badly when we heard that the Mildenhall Mayhem had decided to forfeit their remaining fixtures – gifting Leicester and Coventry two wins each – a killer considering we played the Mayhem earlier in the year and had narrowly lost. This put our rivals in a good position, not having to face the tough americans.
The finals scores on the day were:
Jets 58-34 Sharks
Eagles 48-47 Sharks
We just missed out in a tense final game against the Eagles. It wasn’t any single play, we just didn’t make enough plays on the day and it hurt us.
I will write up a little more, but its still too disappointing to think about. So come back in a couple of days to read more.
The final thing I’d like to say is that I was very proud of the way everyone kept fighting for the win yesterday- it just demonstrated how great a TEAM we are. The Sharks will back!!
