IMS Season Review: Saturday
The season is over: where did YOUR society/hall finish?
Saturday Division 1
All the evidence suggests that HistorySoc are deserving champions of Saturday Division 1. After six victories and only one defeat, they are the reigning Kings of the Saturday IMS league, playing some scintillating football as they seized the Div 1 throne. Despite an up-and-coming PostGrad outfit threatening a late revolt with a theatrical 1-0 win over the History Boys, the table-toppers battled to the title.
At the other end of the table, Christian Union are in 7th heaven after they won the hellish relegation dogfight and sentenced LawSoc to 8th place. The Christians were unable to resurrect their hopes of a comfortable mid-table finish but, nuntheless, will not give Adam after so narrowly escaping their followers’ condemnation.
The Lawyers had a debatable start, but swiftly lost their appeal as the hammer came down on their season. They were poorly represented and failed to acquit themselves in the top division, finishing bottom and leaving with only the wooden anvil to show for their efforts.
Saturday Division 2
In a landslide victory, PoliticsSoc governed their league throughout the season and finished top of Division 2. The faschionable Politicians dictated most of their matches as they romped to the summit of the league and were elected to the top flight.
Just a fraction behind the league leaders were MathSoc, who will take more positives than negatives from their 2nd place finish. The Mathematicians will take particular pride from their goal-difference, which was ≥ the rest of the division.
MedicsSoc’s season was not what the doctor ordered. They fell into a state of emergency after four consecutive defeats and the squad, lacking a midfield heartbeat, collapsed, failing to fulfil their remaining fixtures.
Saturday Division 3
It was a walk in the Park for Newark Rangers as they Powered to the Div 3 title. Ironically, administrative errors have cost BizSoc dearly, leaving them only two points behind Newark with a game in hand that will never be played.
Elsewhere, MBC & BBC failed to put on an entertaining show for the audience, finishing in a lowly 6th place. In what turned out to be a relatively Pointless season for BBC, they failed to hit Top Gear or Mastermind an assault on the title.
The Weakest Link, however, was fans favourite No Game. The early table-toppers faded away after their strong start and failed to put up much of a fight in the battle to avoid last place.
Part II coming soon…
