Cottage Pies title hopes dented after losing to Home Guard 2

Division A  

Leaders Cottage Pies aspirations of becoming Division A champions were thwarted by the current champions Home Guard 2 who beat them by 40 pins at the Football Club. Their lead has now been cut to just 3 points as second placed Reservists beat O. B. A. by the night’s biggest margin of 111 pins, both teams have 1 home and 1 away game left with Reservists playing lower placed teams. If Reservists win both of their two games then Cottage Pies will also need to win at least their away match to win the League title outright but a loss away and a home win would mean a tie and a playoff match. Relyon are still third despite losing to Fireguard A by 13 but Angels and Holywell Lake (joint fourth) are only 2 points behind them. Angels beat Muscotts by 13 and Holywell Lake beat Bell Green by 58.  Wardens also had a big win some 80 pins more than Hot Shots with Chris Meale fresh from his Cyril Hicks final appearance hitting a 4 spare 81 (16,17,15, 9, 8,16), the closest match was 6 pin win at home by Rebels over Shooters. In a night of big wins Queens Legs were not to be left out gaining a 72 pin win over Club Rockers, Report Centre A had a closer match beating Oaks by 12 which confirms Oaks as the Wooden Spoonists (small)  

Cottage Pies are at home playing Rebels, Reservists are away to Club Rockers and Relyon are playing their stable mates Hot Shots

Champions Mowers closed their season with a 77 pin (biggest win of the night) win over 7 man All Stars giving them a points total of 60 some 10 points ahead of stable mates King Pins who beat Odds and Ends by 5 the smallest winning margin.
