Good month for Erks
With three out of three wins in January, Erks are looking good to retain their EMBL League championship title since they've only lost one game to date.

February though sees a couple of potentially tough road games against Cardinals and Spitfires so it could still be an interesting run to the play-offs. (Posted 11.02.05)
