Clash of the allegro teams

Both Dunfermline allegro teams were in action tonight against both of the Stirling teams.

The Dunfermline Minnows pretty much routed the Stirling Wallace team 13-3. The Dunfermline win did not seem much in doubt at any point. Especially, after Wallace failed to convert their best chance on paper of a victory in the first match and instead lost it 3-1. As a result, with one match left to play, the Dunfermline Minnows have more or less sewn up the Central Allegro League title.

The Dunfermline Sharks struggled in their four matches, with the Bruce team just about holding the edge all the way through. The Sharks needed to win the final matchup 3-1, or better to come away with anything. However, they instead lost it 3-1. Making a final score of 9.5-6.5 to Stirling Bruce. This is the side that the Minnows scraped past a few weeks back and they have a realistic chance of achieving second place in the league.
