Club 5-1 with leg scores of  16-16, 12-11, 13-11.  For Utd. ‘B’ K.Empson & J.Lesiakowski 8 each and S.Martin 7, with Dave ‘Blobber’ Harris managing 2 of them.  In reply for CC T.Barrett 10 and P.Barrett 9.  Damian Todd (no relation to Sweeney) managed the dreaded X X X for the 2nd time this season.  Keep at it mate.

The Heathens beat Ab. Utd. ‘C’ 6-0 with leg scores of 15-13, 17-14, 16-14.  For The Heathens B.Townsend included a 6 in his 13 (his highest), P.Adams 12, T.Downes included a 6 in his 10 and P.Longford 8.  For Utd. ‘C’ Jono Warrell 9 and M.James 7.

Ab. Utd. ‘A’ dropped points for the 3rd game in a row to loose more ground on the leaders.  The score was 4-2 and the leg scores were 17-15, 15-17, 19-14.  For Utd. ‘A’ K.Fisher and B.Parker 13 each with Ken improving on his previous highest the week before.  D.Dix 12 and D.Davies 10. For Penlon P.Wright and D.Bellcourt 9 each and I.Morrison 7.

Croft Nomads drew 3-3 with Spread Eagle with leg scores of 18-12, 13-13, 12-18, probably a fair result given both teams recorded 43 dolls.  For The Coft  S.Enock 10, L.Clapton 8, A.Bell 7, I.Brook and N.Weston 6 each.  For The Spread  D.Mott 8, M.Beachey and P.Soden 7 each.  Phil had a 1st leg blob, then in the 2nd when needing  2 to win and after scoring with his 1st stick, missed with the next 5.  To prove what a ‘funny old game’ this is he clanged off a 6 in the 3rd leg.

p.s.  At the half way stage of the season I beg the questions. Can Legion fend off Utd. ‘A’ and The Croft to win ‘A’ section ?  Who will come out on top in ‘B’ section ?  Will  Utd. ‘C’ actually win a game ?  Does anyone give a s**t ?
