In South One of the men's EBA league Connaught A have found themselves in a relegation scrap with several sides in a very tight division.
A 59-51 (points 4-1) win at Scole was followed by an excellent result, 57-57 (3-2), at home to champions Gissing. A last-match defeat, 35-69 (0-5), at Swardeston made nerves flutter but the inconsistent Connaught side has done enough to stay up.
In South Two Connaught B lost their way despite an encouraging start to the season. A 41-87 (0-5) defeat at fellow strugglers, Diss B, ensured bottom place and the season ended with a 48-61 (1-4) defeat at Norfolk CC.
