PERIOD 15:  "The battle for second goes down to the wire"

With just one round to go, unless there is a dramatic turn of events it is looking like the green machine, "Green MT" are homing in on the title as another solid quarter saw them reach 2,574 pts, and well clear of the chasing pack. However, the battle behind them for second place shows no signs of letting up as "Chimera" continued their late surge to climb one more place to 2nd, and change places with "HOMA Management", with "Global Construction" also moving up one place to 4th, and only 73 points now separates the three teams chasing the runners up spot, and one good or bad decision could be decisive in the final period. Further down the table it was an excellent quarter both for "United Constructions", whose 11% growth was easily the best published, and "Thenza", whose resilience has finally paid off as they finally made it off the bottom with an impressive 7% improvement, to leave the "Part-Timers" with a full time job to avoid propping up the table after the final round. Having said that, all the management teams are still running sustainable and profitable businesses, whatever their league position.
