Liz Potter’s deft management of the points table and results contribute greatly to the excitement and momentum of the Northwest League. After two more legs of the competition, admirably consistent performances from Damien, Enda and Cliff cast a very rosy tint on the club’s prospects as we count down the 14 days to the final.
For the third time in three attempts, Cliff yesterday bagged 7 points in the primary division leaving him perched at the top of the leader board. But the consistency of his competitors mean that he has to maintain that level of success to guarantee him an overall win in the league. Fingers crossed, Cliff!
In the Advanced Intermediate class, Damien’s equally consistent efforts with Armstrong leave him in a comfortable but certainly not unassailable position. With any little bit of luck at all, things are looking good, but show jumping is show jumping! Marina and Anne stand ready to defend the club’s honour should anything go awry.
At Advanced Primary level Enda has a fight on his hands as he attempts to overcome Liz Potter’s marginal advantage. This is the tightest class on the schedule and the final promises to be nail biting.
With Anne now competing in the Advanced Intermediate league, our competitive edge at Intermediate level has been considerably blunted. Rosaleen McGinley is streets ahead of the competition and looks home and hosed but there’s going to be a good scrap for the minor placings between a disparate group of contenders.
Well done everybody on your performances over the last two weeks. Here’s looking forward to the final!
