To keep up some ‘friendly’ competition between clubs whilst we are off the goalball court we have started a ‘Higher or Lower’ League.
A representative from each club is randomly selected to take part in each round and subsequently receive a phone call from a Goalball UK member of staff.
Using a pack of playing cards, the rules were simple, how many correct answers (Higher or Lower) could they give in a row? – there was an improvement from Round 1, with no club scoring zero!
In Round 2 Merseyside Sharks stormed to the top with the highest score from either round thanks to Ada Eravama scoring a sensational 28, there may have been an element of beginners luck as Ada stated before her attempt that she did not know the rules! In a distant second place despite her impressive score is Tracey Compton from the London Elephants with a score of 16, which would have seen her take the top spot in Round 1… unlucky! Finishing off the top three is Marc Powell from Fen Tigers with a respectable score of 11.
With the Round 1 and 2 scores combined we currently have Merseyside Sharks in 1st place with 31 (climbing the ladder from joint 7th in Round 1), London Elephants in 2nd place with 16 (moving up from joint 10th in Round 1), and Cambridge Dons in 3rd place with 14 (dropping from 2nd place in Round 1)… it is all to play for in Round 3!
