A meet: Old Farm and Manor Woods were swimming a see-saw battle the whole morning, with the biggest lead of the day being 18 points. But in the end the Eagles prevailed by 11 points and that win along with finishing ahead of Manor Woods in third place in today’s relay carnival, leaves the Eagles are in first place with 30 points, followed by Manor Woods with 22 and Somerset with 16. This sets up a key contest against third place Somerset next Saturday. The results from the A meet are up on our web site (A meet results: Old Farm vs Manor Woods).
