Through a round-robin prelim in groups of 6 and a crossover playoff in brackets of 9, Cambridge A went 11-0 and Oxford A went 10-1 to enter an advantaged final. Oxford A (George Corfield, Joey Goldman, Daoud Jackson, Spence Weinreich) overturned the advantage by 510-280 and then 385-380 in a very tense final.

Congratulations to Oxford! Well done for all teams; there was tremendous competition during the day. Full stats will follow tomorrow.
