Centenary Cup - September 2nd, 2017

The Centenary Cup is the annual match between the SAC and Villarceaux (Patsome matchplay). Villarceaux defeated the SAC 7-2, thus retaining the Cup for another year. At this rate it'll be another 3 years before our skill becomes enough to defeat their luck.(We only won 1 match last year, so in fact things are looking up.)
