That’s Two Titles Now – Just the Big One to Come!
Last weekend the Edinburgh Monarchs had a very comprehensive win over two legs over the Ipswitch Witches to take out the National Knock Out Cup.
The first leg was held at the Witches home track and the Monarchs turned up determined to put in a good showing to ensure that we would take an advantage to our home track for the decided the following night.
As it was, our team put in an awesome performance and defeated the Witches 53-37. We were therefore very confident heading into the final leg and continued our run of being unbeaten at home for the entire 2014 season and won 52-38.
Now it’s onto the most important two fixtures of the season. We are up against the same team (Somerset Rebels) who defeated Edinburgh for the League Title last year and both teams are very dominant at their home tracks.
We hope to go to Somerset on Friday night and if we can’t win, at least ensure that we don’t have too big a deficit to try and make up at home on Saturday night.
It would be fantastic to finish off this exceptional season with a win in front of our very loyal supporters and if we do, it will mean that the Monarchs have taken all three National Titles on offer and also the Premier League Pairs – a true testiment to the amazing year we’ve had (the Monarchs most successful in the Club’s history) and one that I will always remember.
