Great escape for the 2s ... maybe

In a remarkable finish, played out in near darkness, the Carlton 2nd XI snatched a tie against Holy Cross to retain their place in the ESCA Championship next year ... depending on the outcome of next week's CSL play-off.

The Threes similarly managed to escape automatic relegation by the skin of their teeth, while there were defeats for the Twos and Fours. Meanwhile, the Carlton women kept up their 100% league record with a win over Stirling.
