Jockys 10 vs Cannons 11 – Match Stats
Another quality encounter with the resurgent Jockys falling just short against a strong Cannons team. Needing 5 of the last 6 singles to snatch it the Jockys managed to get the game to 10-all before Mark Lee broke the home team’s hearts with a deciding leg victory.
Gary lead the Jockys with 4 wins from 4 while Ian grabbed 3 wins and joint-topped the team’s ton count with Derek, both hitting 5. For the visitors it was a good night for Gav (3 wins, 5 tons) along with a 2 wins from 2 cameo from Arthur,
Devils 9 vs Motley Crew 12 – MatchStats
Another win by the table topping Motley Crew but the Devils made them work hard for it. In a tight encounter MC won all the doubles but the Devils clawed back by winning the first round of singles 4 games to 2 to make it 5-4. MC returned the favour to open up a 9-6 lead but the Devils wiped it out by winning the first 3 games of the final round of singles. The final surge of the night came courtesy of Dan, Sam and Ross who were able to close out the victory.
Top Devil was Christian with 3 singles wins and 4 tons but mentions to Ash and Steve with two wins each, Steve hitting a maximum as well. Standout for the Crew was Ross again (8 (yes “eight”) tons) and Sam who won 4 from 4.
Javelins 16 vs Slashers 5 – Match Stats
Javelins too strong for a 5-man Slashers team. Some good performances on the Javs side of the scorebook with Bryan leading the wins & tons count (4 wins, 6 tons) with Max, Hugh and Luch adding 3 wins apiece. Always going to be difficult for the team of 5 but a brave effort from Anthony S who won all 3 of his singles games. A warm welcome to Anthony A who was making his debut for the Slashers.

A bye for ALGC.
Tri-Hards 12 vs Arrows 3 – Match Stats
The Tri-Hards made the table that much more compact with an inspired win against their local hombres. Jess (5 tons), Dave Render (4 tons) and Lyn (1 ton) won all 3 of their matches with Dom winning 2 and Denise 1 for the Arrows. Would be remiss of me not to mention Dom’s impressive bust on 172.
Gremlins 10 vs Wanderers 5 – Match Stats
The Gremlins jumped to a 5-1 lead and dug in not to be caught. Andrew with 4 tons and 3 wins continued his good form with Dave Hoy winning 2 singles for the Wanderers and whilst they have surrendered top spot the Gremlins are still to have the bye.
