Hi OKA Korfers,
Basingstoke Bulls 1 have retained their Division 1 title after beating Reading Knights 1 at Everest on Sunday. Abingdon 1 and Reading Knights 1 have now completed their matches and have finished 2nd and 3rd respectively. The other placings in Division 1 are also finalised now, with Oxford Uni 1 in 4th, Oxford Isis 1 in fifth and Oxford City 1 propping them up (Isis have a better head-to-head record).
In Division 2 North, Abingdon 2 move away from the group on 31 points with a win over Oxford Isis 3. In Division 2 South, Farnborough Jets 1 suffered another defeat, this time at the hands of a resurgent Basingstoke Bulls 2 team, who also beat Reading Knights 2, and they move up to 4th place.

The final weekend of the league features 10 matches, 8 of which involve a Uni team. After the snowpocalypse, there was a real effort to get the league season finished before May, in particular from Reading, Southampton and Woking, who agreed to play a set of fixtures on Sat 27 April. It was a tough weekend for hall availability, so we welcome two new venues - Oasis Academy in Southampton, and Woodford Park Leisure Centre in Reading.
Reading Knights 2 have three matches in one weekend, and a chance to move off the bottom of the Division 2 South table.
Woking 3 can go up to second if they win both of their games, but division winners Southampton Spartans Uni stand in their path, defending the position held by Southampton Spartans City.
At Cheney, Basingstoke Bulls 1 will look to complete the season with a 100% record in their matches against Oxford Uni 1 and Oxford Isis 1. In the race for second place in Division 2 North, Abingdon 2 play Oxford Uni 3 before Oxford Isis 2 face Didcot Dragons 2. Wins for both Abingdon 2 and Oxford Isis 2 would see them finish tied in joint second place on 39 points, as they have equal goal difference in their head-to-head matches.
