League Week 5 of 8 Report (15/4/12)
It was A close and controversial quiz at the Forge this evening in what was a eventful night, with the quiz being won by only half a point and a few of my answers being challenged by teams. As mentioned above the quiz was won by only half a point and that victory went to the the current league Champions "The lemonheads" scoring 54/75 who just pipped "One Day" and "just the two of us" in joint second to the post with 53.5/75. The current league leaders "The Chalfonts" finished third with 50/75. Tonights results see No real change in the league this week compared to last week other than "The Lemonheads" move up one place to 4th place at the expense of "Izzy wizzy" who drop down 1 place to fifth. So With 3 weeks still to go of the current season It still looks like this league is still up for the taking, with many teams once again in contention for the title.
