Nomads 8-4 The Swanderers

Nomads are back in top spot in Division 1, after they enjoyed an 8-4 win against The Swanderers, who drop to 9th. Mark Robinson and Tony Ruggiero both gave Nomads the lead early on, but Stuart Robertson and Robert Garrood were both on hand to equalise for The Swanderers. Two wins for Paul Knight and one for Kyle O'Brien had Nomads 5-2 up, before a win for Will Hammond and a second for Robert got The Swanderers back to 5-4. But second wins for Mark, Tony and Kyle made sure of the 8-4 win for Nomads.

Shootpool 8-4 We Love A Double

Shootpool came back from behind to win 8-4 against bottom side We Love A Double to move into second place in the table. Nathan Brooks gave Shootpool the lead, before wins for captain Lee Salmon and the returning Sue Latham gave We Love A Double a 2-1 lead. Shootpool captain Teresa Collins made it 2-2, before a win for Nicola Court gave We Love A Double the lead. Ben Collins again leveled the match, but a second for Sue made it 4-3 to We Love A Double. But from there, Shootpool won the remaining frames, thanks to second wins for Nathan, Mike and Teresa, and wins for Adam Green and Ben Carty, to win the match 8-4

Wonky Ari 5-7 Shootpool Blues

Shootpool Blues had a 7-5 win against Wonky Ari to move into third place in the table. In the first half of the match, Wonky Ari took the lead three times, through wins for Martin Sullivan, Barry Price and Craig Haywood, but each time the home side led, Shootpool Blues would equalise, through Ben Bantham, James Todd and John Thorne respectively. Frank Almeida then gave Shootpool Blues the lead for the first time at 4-3, before second wins for Ben and James extended the lead to 6-3. Wins for Dominic Whittaker and Aden McLoughlin did reduce the Wonky Ari deficit somewhat, but a win for Shootpool Blues captain Peter Mizon made sure of the 7-5 win.

Honey Bee Stingerz 6-6 Top John

Previous leaders Honey Bee Stingerz dropped down to 4th in the table after they were held to a 6-6 draw by Top John, who are up to 8th. Despite Alex Parker giving Top John the lead, Honey Bee Stingerz were soon 4-1 ahead thanks to wins for Paul Seastram, Gary East, Nick Tilley and Alex Doyle. Two wins for Evan Wakelam reduced the Top John deficit, but second wins on the night for Paul and Alex meant Honey Bee Stingerz led 6-3. But Top John came back at the end, as wins for Mark Kane, Jordan Maxwell Hoff and Josh Corcoran rescued the 6-6 draw.

Kennedy GC 4-8 The Vic Club

The Vic Club moved into 5th with an 8-4 win against 6th placed Kennedy GC. Paul McGill gave Kennedy GC the lead in the first frame, but The Vic Club won the next six frames without reply, a run that included two wins for Nigel Frost, and a win each for Steve Marshall, Oliver Burgess, Steve Crutch and Mark Tumilty. Neil Tisbury and Gerry Murphy then pulled a couple of wins back for Kennedy GC, but the win for The Vic Club was wrapped up when Mark won his second of the night. The last two frames were shared as Ian Manners won for Kennedy GC and a second for Steve Marshall wrapped up the 8-4 win for The Vic Club.
