  1. Not sure if the 2020 OBC record is correct. The NYBL standings show them as 7-2 but doesn't show the score of their final game(10th NYBL) at Richmond against Garner Road Elliot. If I'm not mistaken, I believe they won that game to go to 8-2. Any clarification?????

  2. Don't think you have the 2020 OBC record right. I believe they're 8-2 if I'm not mistaken.
