The run of seven frames included two wins for Calvin Baldwin, which elevated him into 5th in the individual rankings. The Feathers did make the score respectable by winning three of the final four frames, with Ryan Mutch's second for Wonky Weavers the only one they did not claim. Missing from the final match, Dominic Whittaker of Wonky Weavers missed out on topping the individual stats, but still finished second with a great 25-6 record.

The White Swan started the better of the two teams, taking 1-0, 3-1 and 4-2 leads in a good first half. But Shootpool Cutters started the second half much better, and second wins on the night for Danny Mobey and Robert Wallingford helped Shootpool Cutters into a 5-4 lead.
