The Brickslayers 7-5 SP Blacks

SP Blacks fell to their second defeat of the league season this week, falling to a 7-5 away defeat against 9th placed The Brickslayers. The defeat leaves them top by just a point, but still have the all-important game in hand still to play. The Brickslayers won the first half 4-2 to give themselves a chance, but SP Blacks then won the next three, including second wins on the night for Troy Brett and Dave Green, to lead 5-4. But after The Brickslayers equalised, secomd wins for Neil Bartholomew and Jason Hoff made sure of the win for the hosts.

Shootpool 'A' 6-6 The New Roth'mans'

2nd placed The New Roth'mans' , who now sit a point behind the leaders, and 3rd placed Shootpool 'A', played out a 6-6 draw, keeping Shootpool 'A''s unbeaten record in tact. Shootpool 'A' started well, moving into a 4-1 lead in the first half, and second wins for Justin Hooley and Kyle O'Brien extended that lead to 6-4 in the second half, but late second wins for Julian Lefevre and Brian Keeble rescued the draw for The New Roth'mans' .

Shootpool Sharks 9-3 SP3

Shootpool Sharks moved into 4th place in the table with a comfortable 9-3 home win over bottom side SP3. After comfortably winning the first half 5-1, Shootpool Sharks pushed on in the second half with Sonnie O'Sullivan, Penny Mines, Joe Mcloughlin and David Feore all winning twice on the night as they moved into a 9-1 lead, before SP3 won the final two frames.

Bradmoor Bullets 5-7 Dirty Ari

Dirty Ari also moved up to 5th place in the table after they narrowly won 7-5 away from home against Bradmoor Bullets, who drop to 6th with the defeat. Dirty Ari took 2-0 and 3-1 leads in the first half, but the match was level at 3-3 at half time. A second win for Tim Moran helped Dirty Ari win the next three to lead 6-3, but Ryan Englefield and Steve Dutton both won their second frames to give Bradmoor Bullets a chance of the draw. But a win against his former team for Elliot Riley gave Dirty Ari the win in the final frame.

New Zealand 'A' 6-6 Bradmoor 'A'

The final game of the week saw 8th placed New Zealand 'A' play out a 6-6 draw at home against 7th placed Bradmoor 'A'. In a very even match that saw both halves finish level at 3-3, New Zealand 'A' pair Brian Lopez and Dennis Walton both won twice, as did Marc Reading for Bradmoor 'A'.
