SP Blacks opened up a 9 point lead in the AIPL Premier this week after an 11-1 win for themselves was coupled with their closest two rivals drawing 6-6. In their 11-1 win against bottom side Honey Bee Stingerz, Mike Chappell, Dave Green, Andy Taylor, Adam Jackow and captain Peter Ward all won twice for the league leaders. In a match that both sides could have done with winning, New Zealand "B" and The Swan drew 6-6. Despite New Zealand "B" going 2-0 and 6-3 ahead, second wins for Colin Rogan and Luke Butler rescued the draw for The Swan. Shootpool Sharks cemented their place in fourth after two wins for Chris Mottau, Joe Mcloughlin and Gordon Sweeney helped them to a comfortable 9-3 win against Top John, who drop to 9th. Elsewhere, two wins each for James Connor and Chris Eley helped 5th placed Shootpool 'A' win 8-4 against 6th placed New Zealand 'A', and 7th placed The Roths won 7-5 against 8th placed The Brick Slayers, with Rory Sore and Neil Roberts winning twice each.

New Zealand "B" 6-6 The Swan

Shootpool Sharks 9-3 Top John

Shootpool 'A' 8-4 New Zealand 'A'

Looking Ahead...

League leaders SP Blacks will be hoping to carry on from last week as they take on 8th placed The Roths, whom they beat 11-1. Second placed New Zealand "B" are away to 9th placed Top John, and third placed The Swan have a home tie against 5th placed Shootpool 'A', two weeks removed from whitewashing them out of the Knock Out Cup. Elsewhere, 4th placed Shootpool Sharks travel to face 8th placed The Brick Slayers with the two sides drawing their return fixture in October, and 6th placed New Zealand 'A' play host to bottom side Honey Bee Stingerz.
