Shootpool Blues 6-6 Hot Shots

With the leaders The Roths not in action this week, this was 2nd placed Shootpool Blues' chance to close the gap at the with a big win, but they only cut the lead down to 5 points after they were held to a 6-6 by 7th placed Hot Shots. Even the draw looked unlikely when Hot Shots took 3-0 and 5-1 leads in the first half. A second for Frank Almeida helped Shootpool Blues back to 5-4 down, before Stephen Coultas won his second for Hot Shots.

After the hosts went 2-0 up, Weavers' Beavers & Balls levelled up at 2-2, but the match was one sided from there on, with Dairy Maid 'A' winning seven of the final eight frames, including two wins each for the trio of Grant Mullender, Nigel Crook and Calvin Baldwin, with Zenya Heap winning her second of the match as the only frame Weavers' Beavers & Balls managed in the second half.
