EIGHTBALL: All the action from Round 21 of the Port Augusta Eightball Association.

Top team Gunners received a fright from the Blue team, who are at the lower end of the premiership table.

Gunners were stung into action, trailing 1-4 after the first set, but recovering to win the next two sets by 5-0 and 4-1 to record a comfortable victory.

All five players for Gunners, Troy Coe, Anthony Grantham, Tim Allport, Rhys Bavington and Scott Mackinlay, were able to win two of their three frames.

Unfortunately for Travellers, they were unable to continue the form shown in the first set, with Terry McKenzie the only player to win two frames from the three that he played.

PABC Dynamite 12 d Straight Outta Progress 3

Dynamite maintained second position on the premiership table with a dominant performance against fifth-placed Progress.

The winners managed a very comfortable straight-set victory of 4-1, 4-1, 4-1, with the Association’s leading player, Rob Duke, winning his three frames including an eightball pot-out.

Clay Weidenbach also won his three frames, ably supported by Norm Wood and Ashley Bemmerl, each with two from three.

Progress would have been disappointed with the scoreline, with Will Tucker their most successful player winning two from three.

RSL Cannons 12 d Central Red 3

At the end of the first set, the score in this match read 3-2 to Cannons.

Whether they improved as the night went on or the Red team got progressively worse is open to conjecture, but with 4-1 and 5-0 results in the ensuing sets, Cannons managed to cruise to victory.

Brodie Grantham and James Little kept their names at the forefront for the Top 8 shootout with three wins each, while the consistent Peter Greatbatch won the two frames that he played. Ian Long also won two from three.

The Red team had three individual players winning one frame each.

PABC Shooters 11 d South Bulldogs 4

Thanks to a dominant 5-0 result in the second set, Shooters were able to withstand a Bulldogs team that managed to take two frames from them in both the first and third sets.

The depth of the Shooters team proved too great for Bulldogs, with Norm Hinton and Michael Grimes winning their three frames, Jarrod Wallace winning two from two, and Mick Freeman two from three.

Best player for Bulldogs was Kirk Pieters, who won two of his three frames.
