Reports:

  1. Tiverton Riverside Club had a bye.
  2. The Agri-Nuts four game winning streak came to an end with an away loss at HCC1.  Agri-Nuts were a man short and it told as HCC1 gained 15 on the first rub.  It wasn’t quite a white-wash though as Agri-Nuts took the second by 8 pins to reduce the gap to 7.  That was it for the evening though as HCC1 took the four remaining legs for a 56 pin win.
  3. The Farmers keep themselves in touch with the leaders following a 17 pin home win against The Merriemeade.  Farmers crept into a half-way point lead of 5, which Merriemeade wiped out on the fourth as they took a slender 3 pin lead.  A single pin advantage for Merriemeade on the fourth meant the game was set for a close finish, but a 3-spare 87 leg for The Farmers saw them win by 17.
  4. Ashill Inn were winners by 30 pins at home to The Travellers.  Ashill took the initiative and were 10 up after two rubs.  A drawn third meant the game was still up for grabs, but Ashill took the final three rubs for a comfortable win.
  5. Rose and Crown go level on points in third with opponents Tim’s Booze Cruzers, following their 10 pin home win.  Rose and Crown went 10 up after two rubs and added another 5 on the third.  Cruzers fought levelled the game on the fourth and then took a 12 pin lead on the fifth.  Rose and Crown had finished with an 86 last leg though and that proved enough to grab the points.
  6. White Hart Floppers started brightly against Bickleigh, taking the first rub by 12.  That was it for the night though as Bickleigh took the remaining five rubs for a win by 54.  The win leaves Bickleigh in second, 2 points clear of third place Tim’s Booze Cruzers and 2 behind leaders Barmy Army.
  7. Barmy Army had a bye.
