Warriors have rebounded strongly after their shock loss last week.

Playing third-placed Recaholics with the second-best percentage in the league, Warriors were merciless as they smashed them 14-1.

Recaholics are a much better team than the score suggests but last Wednesday night that was not the case.

This loss hit that strong percentage hard, sending them out of the top four with only two weeks remaining before finals.

Two weeks ago, it was Wreckers in fifth position, last week it was Stickmen and this week it is Recaholics and one of these three teams will miss out on a top-four berth as Warriors will finish top and Mongrels most likely second.

In other matches, Stickmen entered the top four with a strong 12 -3 win over Slayers and likewise Mongrels kept a top-two finish in sight with a 12-3 win over Animals.

In the closest match of the week, Wreckers showed they wanted a top-four position as they outplayed Punishers, 11-4.

In the match of the week next week, fourth-placed Stickmen play third-placed Wreckers and the loser of this match may struggle for a top-four position with Recaholics expected to win their last two matches.

The Warriors sit on top of the table with 32 points from 198 wins out of 285 games.

The Mongrels are second on 28 points, having recorded 162 wins and 123 losses.

The Wreckers (24 points), Stickmen (22 points) and Recaholics (22 points) are battling it out for third and fourth spots.

Wreckers face last-placed Punishers this week, while Stickmen face Samson Slayers.

It will be a tough match for the Recaholics, who face the red-hot Warriors to keep themselves in the mix.
