BSSL Records and Standings

Over the past several seasons, Rich Costa, who plays for Glen Elg, has designed and prepared a very creative and useful document entitled BSSL Records and Standings. It includes the results of the games played as to wins and losses, the number of times teams have beaten each other and the resulting standings shown by each division. As I have in the past, I intend to included this report in this space throughout the season. To view it, click HERE.
