Letís see how just a few of teams got on.


Queens Head Vs Crossley A
Not much I can say about this match apart from the Crossley dominated the match right from the start and won there match 6-0.
We donít see many white washes so a very well done†goes†to Crossley A.


Catherine Of Aragon
Looking at the league tables the Catherine Of Aragon would be favorites to take the win. It looked that way when they took the first 2 frames. From 2-0 down Snooker B knuckled down to take the next 3 making it 3-2 to them after 5 frames. Could snooker B hold them off long enough to win in the second 5. Frame 6 and 7 went straight back to the Catherine making it a right battle and taking the lead for the second time. Unfortunately the Catherine could not hold on to there lead with Snooker B winning the next 3 frames and winning the match 6-4.


George A Vs Riley's Rumblers
With standard of the George A in past years I would have put my money on the George A taking a early victory but with them already losing 2 out of three matches maybe there heyday was up. It was the Rumblers that took the early lead making it 2-1 after three frames but was that lead just luck as they went on to loss the next three frames. At a score of 4-2 to the George was it all over for the rumblers or could they pull something out to get back in the hunt. The next 2 frames went the way of the rumblers to make it all square at 4-4. It was now all there for either side for the taking and with only 3 frames left every ball counted. After a tactical battle of nearly 1hr the ninth frame went to the George but the rumblers were not giving up and took the tenth to make it a 1 frame decider.
Yet another big tactical battle which even saw a re-rack taking place it was just not meant to be for the rumblers as George A managed to keep it together and take the win 6-5.

So who won and lost.
