Boccia Super League – Day 2

Published February 22, 2023

The second round of fixtures in the Boccia Super League – the most competitive teams-based boccia competition in the country – took place at the Brentwood Centre on 19 February. The Boccia Super League comprises of the top eight boccia teams in England.

PACE A had three games and after a successful first round, they were keen to build on the momentum and move up the league table. The line-up consisted of Alex (c), Reshad, Aiden, and Habib, a strong line-up full of confidence, believing they could beat any team put in front of them. 

The first match against Boccia Team Solent University was on paper, the most difficult. Coming up from the National League this season, Team Solent has been the surprise package of the Super League, winning all their games and beating SAS, the current Super League Champions in the process. On top of this, ex-PACE player Mitchell Robinson, brother of Aiden, was in the Solent team and both were determined to earn the victory for their team but more importantly for them, the bragging rights! 

The match was a tight affair as expected. It all came down to the last end, tied 4-4. The tension was at an all time high. Yet again, it was Habib, the coolest customer in the entire sports hall, playing a fantastic Jack first ball from box six, and relieving the pressure, securing the point and a 5-4 win for PACE. 

Buoyed by the victory, PACE A quickly set their focus on Paul’s Place Barbarians who are strong, powerful, and dangerous at long range. PACE A knew this of course and quelled their strengths from the very beginning. PACE A righted their mistakes from the first game and scored points on many ends. An adjustment to the Jack ball placement also caused problems for the opponent, meaning that the Barbarians could not gain any momentum. This was reflected in the score, which ended 12-2 to PACE A. A truly dominant display from start to finish.

The final match against West Herts Boccia saw another strong performance from PACE A. Winning the game 7-1 going into the final end, PACE A saw a sloppy end where they conceded 5 points but that was still enough to win the game 7-6.

PACE A have currently five out of their six matches and are now placed in third place, with the same number of points as the two teams above them.

Well Done PACE A!
