Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to build a Netball League website for a client. Here are the object relations for the Data Objects:

NetballTeam has_one Division
Netball Team has_many Match

Division has_many NetballTeam
Division has_many Match

Match has_many NetballTeam (I've resticted this to 2 by counting how many there are removing the add/link functionality when the limited is reached)
Match has_one Division
Match has_one MatchGroup

MatchGroup has_many Match

The problem I'm having is linking the match result to the team, so for example team A score 3, and team B score 5.

This I can then use to detect the winner, etc.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Has many's much be matched by a has_one so I would change your Match -> Team to be something like

Match many_many Team
Match many_many_extraFields = ('Score' => 'Int')
Team belongs_many_many Match

If performance is a concern then store the winner on the Match (has_one Winner - Team) this would avoid calculations to look up the winner.
