Last night was Team Nicoll's first opportunity to seal the Peter Allan Shield. Unfortunately (?) he will have to wait another week. A determined Maguire squad, engaged in their own battle with 'Faither' Nicoll (for the wooden spoon), managed to inflict Sandy's second defeat of the season to lift themselves off the bottom of the table, where Morgan's victory over Team Wood put them on Sunday.
On paper Mike's boys n girls could still lift the Shield but that would require help. Sandy only needs one win from his last 2 games.
