AASE Round 7: Play off contenders confirmed after exciting final day

The final round of AASE League matches took place on Wednesday ahead of the league split for the play-offs.


Most of the qualification spots had been secured already, but a couple in the south remained to be decided.


The top 3 in the North and top 4 in the South will form two mini leagues (split north and south) with the same happening for the teams in the bottom half. The winners in the north in play the south winners in the final, second v second, and so on.




Oaklands, Gosforth Academy, and Worcester 6th form College were already confirmed as going through in the North, but while Oaklands had secured going through in top spot and had a bye week, Gosforth and Worcester faced each other.


While both were through, there was still the matter of deciding who came second in this first phase of the league. Gosforth secured that honour, winning a thrilling game 29-22.


There was another thriller over in the north east as Myerscough College hosted Moulton College, a side determined to prove our prediction of a home win wrong. Prove us wrong they did, winning another thrilling game 27-20.


It was a sorry end to the first league phase for Bishop Burton College, who remain without a win after they were beaten strongly by Wyggeston & Queen Elizabeth I College, 67-7.




There was plenty to play for in the south, with three teams fighting for the final two play off spots. Hartpury College and Exeter College had sealed their places in the top 4 split already, but Henley College, Beechen Cliff, and SGS Filton College were all vying for the remaining two.


That made Henley College v SGS Filton College key. Filton had a game in hand, but a win for Henley would see both them and Beechen Cliff through without either having to worry about Filton’s extra game.


That was exactly how it played out as Henley beat their Bristol based opponents 32-10 to seal their passage through.


It also secured Beechen Cliff’s, but they made doubly sure by beating St Paul’s Catholic College with an impressive 39-5 scoreline.


Hartpury College and Exeter College might both already have been through, but they wanted to show their skills and duly did so by winning their games. Hartpury saw off Truro College 29-14, while Exeter won away at Ivybridge Community College, 17-10.
