In the penultimate round of the opening league phase in the 2019 AASE season, four sides secured their top four finishes across the two conferences.

 

In the Northern Conference Gosforth Academy, Brooksby Melton College, and Oaklands College all secured their top four finshes, while in the Southern Conference Hartpury College have secured theirs.

 

The top four sides in each conference go into two mini conferences after the next round of games, first and third in the north grouped with second and fourth in the south, and vice versa, the winners of each group then meeting in the final. So these last couple of rounds are absolutely crucial for sides as they aim to get into those spots.

 

Northern Conference

 

Gosforth Academy booked their place in the top four with a dominant 59-7 victory away at Stourport High School, leaving them as the only side across either conference to remain unbeaten, and keeping them four points clear at the top of the conference.

 

Next week they host Oaklands College, who had a bye week this week, but with Oaklands also qualified it will be a game for seedings rather than a game for qualification.

 

Brooksby Melton College have also qualified thanks to a 64-12 victory over Moulton College. They have now played all of their games though so second is the best they can hope for, they will have to sit and watch next week’s results come in to see their seeding and which group they will end up in.

 

The fight for fourth though is going to be a real dogfight that goes right into next week’s final round. Myerscough College kept their challenge alive by beating current fourth place side Bishop Burton College 38-15 to draw them level on points. It means that all comes down to next week. Both have games they should win, Bishop Burton host Stourport and Myerscough travel to Moulton, but with Moulton struggling to avoid conceding points, it could well be advantage Myerscough.

 

Southern Conference

 

Hartpury College secured their place in the top four thanks to a 31-0 victory over SGS Filton College, a result that leaves them four points clear at the top and unable to be caught by the fifth placed side, who happen to be Filton.

 

It gets really interesting below though because the four sides competing for the three remaining spots all face each other next week. Filton College host St Paul’s Catholic College, who increased their odds massively on Wednesday by beating Beechen Cliff 19-13 moving them into third, a point behind Beechen Cliff, level with Exeter, and three points clear of Filton.

 

Beechen Cliff meanwhile will host Exeter College, who had a bye week this week. Should St Paul’s do the job against Filton then both of these would be safe next week but if Filton win, then the loser of this game will be very vulnerable indeed.

 

The final game in the southern conference on Wednesday saw City of Oxford College play their final game of the opening phase, the bottom three in each conference also play mini groups next phase but remain split north/south. They hosted Truro College, going down 31-17.
