  1. Tim’s Booze Cruzers just missed out on an epic comeback as they lost away at Agri-Nuts.  Cruzers were on first and found themselves 25 behind after the first two legs.  That was turned into a 2 pin lead after four and an 8 advantage on the fifth saw them 10 in front with one to play.  Agri-Nuts held steady with a 65 rub, leaving Cruzers needing 56 for a win.  It wasn’t to be though and Agri-Nuts took the game by 3.
  2. The Jockeys shook off having to play a man down as they beat Tim’s Princes by a couple of pins.  Jockeys were leading by 7 after two legs and then 8 after four.  With a further 10 gained on the fifth they were almost home and dry, but a poor last leg almost cost them the match as they held on to win by 2.
  3. Barley Knockons are now just a point behind leaders Tiverton Chiefs after their big 90 pin win at home to Tiverton Riverside Club.  Knockons took all six rubs in a game Riverside Club will want to forget.
  4. The Travellers lost just one leg as they beat The Farmers by 43, extending their unbeaten run to 5 games.  Travellers were 8 up after two legs and had the game sewn up as they stretched that to 37 after four,  finishing by adding another 6 on the last two rubs.  The win keeps Travellers in touch with the leaders, just 2 points behind in third place.
  5. Ashill Inn had a bye
  6. HCC2 were winners away at The Merriemeade by 12.  It was a game of two halves as Merriemeade lost the first 3 legs to go 32 down.  That spurred a revival as the home side took the remaining legs, but not by enough to claw back HCC2’s lead.
  7. Padbrook Park were very pleased with themselves after beating leaders Tiverton Chiefs at home.  Padbrook edged into a 5 pin lead after two legs and extended that to 11 after four.  Chiefs took the fifth by a single pin, but weren’t able to make up the difference on the last, giving Padbrook the win by 6.

  2. The Jockeys just weren’t at the races as away side Barley Knockons won by 79 pins.  Jockeys took just one leg during the evening, as Knockons steadily built a commanding lead.  Legs of 88 and 85 at the end saw Knockons finish in style.
  3. The Travellers stay in touch with the leaders following a 37 pin away win at Tiverton Riverside Club.  Travellers went 8 up after the first two rubs and stretched that to 21 after four.  They finished with their two best legs of the night to take a comfortable win.
  4. The Farmers started brightly as they took on Ashill Inn at home.  Farmers had an 85 and then an 88 leg to go 47 up after two.  Ashill managed to pull 19 back over the next two and with another 15 advantage on the fifth, a remarkable comeback was a possibility.  Farmers had the last word though as they won the final rub by 15 for a 28 pin win.
  5. Tiverton Chiefs had a bye
  6. HCC2 were ruthless in their home game against Agri-Nuts, winning by 52 pins.  Agri-Nuts managed just one drawn leg, with all the rest going to HCC2.
