Title there for Hi-Tech to take

HI-TECH Cougars will go through the formalities of sewing up another North Bridge Leisure Centre title on Monday night.

The action resumes after a week off and Carol Crowther’s side only need to win their penultimate match to be champions and continue their recent dominance.

Success looks assured as Hi-Tech’s opponents are already-relegated Pumas, who have lost all 16 matches this season.

While Pumas have been outclassed and picked up just six losing bonus points, they deserve credit for sticking to their task.

Bigger doubt surrounds the second relegation place with Yo-yos now just one point in front of Arrows.

Yo-yos appear to have the better winning opportunity on Monday against a Towergate side just above them in the table but Arrows are not without hope against an Old Brodleians team likely to throw in more young players after a promotion-winning campaign in the West Yorkshire League.

Division Three teams are also at North Bridge and Innscribe will be looking to nail down second place behind champions TAGS.

MONDAY’S FIXTURES (division in brackets) - At North Bridge: 7.0, Arrows v Old Brodleians (1) and XL v Tiger Vets (3); 7.35, Pumas v Hi-Tech Cougars (1) and Unity v Innscribe (3); 8.10, Towergate v Yo-yos (1) and Jaguars v Sparks (3); 8.45, Jokers v Tigers (1) and Lee Green v TAGS (3); 9.20, Ryburn United v Townies (1) and Halifax v Calder Utd (3).

The Ridings: 7,0, Thundercats v Hillside Services (5); 7.35, Twinkles 2 v Wolves (5); 8.10, Dovetails v Black Jacks (5); 8.45, Jewels v Roxy Rebels (5).

CALDERDALE LEAGUE: Lee Green 36 Blue Mavericks 45, Jets 22 Robins 36, Rockets 22 Saints 47.
