In all, 15 league scores were recorded with the winner being the consistent Shane Hanrahan with an outstanding 33pts. Team M also had a fruitful week, moving up 4 places to take 1st place on the Team Leaderboard. Next week’s notes will have a double week update, weeks 8 and 9. Good luck to all players.
