Gunners 8 d PABC Dynamite 7
With a 4-1 result in the first set, Gunners were in a position to overwhelm the Association leaders, but like the good team that they are, Dynamite fought back to win the ensuing sets 2-3, 2-3, but just failed in their bid to catch Gunners.
Troy Coe continued his excellent form for the winners with three from three, while Anthony Grantham and Scott Mackinlay were strong performers. Brenton Schulz and Clay Weidenbach were the better players for Dynamite with two from three each.
Flinders Ferals 10 d Central Red 5
Spectators at this match could have mistakenly believed that they were watching a social game of eightball rather than a serious competition match.
Played in a very friendly atmosphere, Ferals were able to win convincingly on the scoreboard and condemn the Red team to the bottom of the competition table.
Neville Karger and Bill Taylor won their three frames, with Terry Forsyth and Mick Hickman winning two from three. For the Reds, Deane Adams (2/2) and Danni Grantham (2/3) were the better contributors.
Travellers Rest Blue 8 d South Bulldogs 7
The Blues moved off the bottom of the ladder when they produced the upset of the round against Bulldogs who were missing star player Dewayne Pieters.
Despite losing the first and third sets 2-3, Travellers set up their victory with a 4-1 win in the second set, enabling them to hold on to their slender lead.
Simon McNicol showed the form that he is capable of with three wins from three, while Josh Grantham and Terry McKenzie were solid contributors. The old stalwart Billy Baker was the best player for Bulldogs, winning his three frames.
RSL Cannons 11 d Straight Outta Progress 4
Unfortunately for Progress, they only had four players for this match that resulted in three losses by forfeit.
Although those four players were able to win one frame each, they were unable to match the strong Cannons combination that won each set.
Cannons were led by Peter Greatbatch and Tim Martlew with three wins apiece, albeit one win each on forfeit, and Brodie Grantham and James Little with two from three.
