Dukes 10-2 Cotton Eyed Joes

Dukes produced a dominant performance to move into second place in the table, and close the gap to the leaders to just six points as they won 10-2 against Cotton Eyed Joes, who drop down to 8th following the defeat. Daniel Smith, Nicola Court and Paul Court all won early on to give Dukes a 3-0 lead, before Zenya Heap and Amber Carter reduced the deficit to 3-2. But Dukes won all the remaining frames from there on, as two wins for Mike Hurst were added to by second wins on the night for Nicola and Paul, and also a frame each for Paul Fretton, Sue Latham and captain Lee Salmon.

SP Bullets 8-4 Misfits

League leaders SP Bullets themselves won their fourth straight match to maintain their lead at the top of the table, this week they beat Misfits, who drop to sixth following the defeat. Brian Elve gave SP Bullets only for Simon Honeyball to equalise. Laura Hunter gave the home side another lead at 2-1, but Tony Festa and Andy Revie both won to give Misfits a 3-2 lead. But SP Bullets then went on a unbeaten run of five frames that included two for Daniel Englefield, second wins on the night for Brian and Laura, and win for Doug Campbell. A second win for Andy stopped that run to make it 7-4, but Trevor Gunn won the final frame to give SP Bullets the 8-4 win.

Cotton Wheel Krazies 9-3 The Chicklayers

Cotton Wheel Krazies won 9-3 against 9th placed The Chicklayers to keep up their own unbeaten start to the season. They had a fantastic start to the match, winning the first 5 frames through Dave White, John Slade, Bob Kmuk, Kathryn Brennan and Dave Coleman to take a 5-0 lead. A brief cameo from Michelle Mountney saw her win two frames back to back to reduce The Chicklayers' deficit to 5-2, but Cotton Wheel Krazies pushed on again, as wins for Josh Deleney and Dwaine Horry were added to by second wins for John and Kathryn pushed them into a 9-2 lead. Claire Magnocavallo won the final frame for The Chicklayers, but it wasn't enough to affect the overall result.

The Feathers 4-8 The White Swan

The White Swan move up to fourth place with a 8-4 win against bottom side The Feathers. Francis Lawler and Stuart Robertson gave The White Swan a 2-0 lead, before Ant Purdey got The Feathers off the mark. Robert Garrood made it 3-1, before Joe Tite pulled it back to 3-2. Will Hammond and James Edney opened up a 3 point gap and made it 5-2, before debutant Will Gidd won a frame back for The Feathers. The White Swan made sure of the win when Robert, Stuart and Will all won their second frames of the night to go 8-3 up, before Joe won his second for The Feathers, but the match result was already decided.

Nomads 6-6 Weavers Warriors

Nomads are still unbeaten this season, but with their third draw in four matches, they slipped down to 5th place, this week drawing 6-6 with Weavers Warriors, who move up to 7th. The match swung both way throughout, as firstly, Lee Turney and Michael Bailey put Weavers Warriors 2-0 up, before Mark Robinson, Tony Ruggiero and Frank Almeida all won to put Nomads 3-2 up, only for Wayne Turney to level the match u at 3-3. David Gee and a second for Frank put Nomads 5-3 up, before a second for Wayne closed to gap to 5-4. Mark Robinson's second win on the night put Nomads on the brink of victory, but late wins for Adrian Barrett and Michael Bailey saved the draw for Weavers Warriors.

Looking Ahead...

Next week sees two unbeaten teams go head to head as league leaders SP Bullets travel to take on third placed Cotton Wheel Krazies. Hoping for a close game that they can take advantage of is second placed Dukes, who are at home against 4th placed The White Swan. 5th placed Nomads will be looking at keeping their unbeaten record intact as they host 9th placed The Chicklayers. Elsewhere, 6th placed Misfits host 8th placed Cotton Eyed Joes, and bottom side The Feathers will be hoping for their first win of the season as they host 7th placed Weavers Warriors.
