This was fun but for various reasons the tournament ran spectacularly late and we only got through the eight-team round-robin plus one placing game.

Oxford A won unbeaten. Lots of people from different universities played well, including Jonathan Elliott (Sheffield) who deserves a special mention for repeating his ACF Fall performance by top-scoring for a second successive regular season competition. ... s/prelims/

Thanks to Penn and collaborators for the set.
