AIPL KNOCK OUT CUP ROUND 1 ROUND-UP

The first round of the AIPL Knock Out Cup took place this week, with the 14 winners from the Preliminary Round facing off for a place in the Quarter Finals.

The surprise of the round goes to Division 1 side Dirty Ari, who won a final frame decider against Premier side and former 5-time champions New Zealand "B", to win 5-4. Another Division 1 side claimed a Premier scalp, as The Roths went through 5-3 winners against Shootpool 'A'.

SP Blacks were awarded the 5-0 whitewash after Washington Weavers did not have enough players to play the match, and fellow Premier side New Zealand 'A' also won 5-0 after beating Division 1 side Wonky Shot.

There was also two away victories in the round too. One of which was the all-Premier affair, as Shootpool Sharks got past The Vic Club 5-2. The other match saw Premier side The Rothschild Arms edged past Division 2 side Weavers' Beavers & Balls 5-4.
