By the end of August Ashbourne Giants had finally been defeated in a shock loss to Mariners, leaving them on 5-1, with the Mariners a game behind. Dublin City Hurricanes meanwhile had picked up their first win, a shock 7-3 win against Mariners Baseball, and then followed it up with a second victory over Dublin Spartans to move into third on 2-4.
