Ironstone Wins Title on Final Lift

It was quite an afternoon at Hubtown yesterday as the top two teams in the NSWL went head to head for the League Championship.

Just a single point separated the teams after the Group 1 snatches, but disaster struck for Hubtown in Group 2, with league veteran Chris Tufts missing all 3 of his snatches. The Truro side didn’t give up, however, and a clutch third attempt clean & jerk by Jevan McNutt put Hubtown back in the lead and put all the pressure on Ironstone’s Brandon Blenkarn, who had missed his first two clean & jerks.

With the title on the line, Brandon came through on his third to hit high score on the day and win it for Ironstone with a league record total.

Congratulations to Ironstone on becoming our inaugural league champions, and to both teams for a great match and a great season.
