The promotion and relegation fates of teams is becoming clearer with each passing week. With Week Ten now in the books, let’s take a look at those teams that did well this past weekend, and those that…well…didn’t.
- Big win for London Blitz over Bury, running out 69-9 victors. DB Dotun Ademiju with a hattrick of INTs.

Big Phoenix wins are becoming so common now that it should take something a little special for them to grace Good Week from here on in. Putting up 48 unanswered points in a beat down of your supposed rivals for the conference crown is certainly a little special. QB Pat Daley threw 4 TDs…
Back-to-back-to-back road wins for Swindon following two defeats to start the campaign. They’ve averaged 40.3 PPG through this hot spell, and are putting pressure on Cornish Sharks for second place in the SFC2 West. With four home games to come in the second half of the season, momentum is with the Storm.
