PABC Shooters 8 d Gunners 7

The battle of second and third between the Shooters and Gunners was a nail-biter and if this is what we can expect in the upcoming finals series, we should be in for a cracker.

Gunners started poorly, losing the first set 1-4, but fought back to level the scores at 5-5.

Scores were again tied going into the last frame when Robert Grimes produced his best game for the night to secure victory for Shooters.

Best players for the winners were Jarrod Wallace, Jason Boyd and Mick Freeman, all with two from three.

Rhys Bavington continued his form from the previous week to again win his three frames, while Scott Mackinlay won two from three to be the better players for Gunners.

PABC Dynamite 11 d Central Red 4

Dynamite showed why they are the top team in the competition when they easily accounted for the bottom-placed Red team.

Although only leading 3-2 after the first set, Dynamite consolidated that lead with 4-1 wins in the remaining sets to run out easy winners.

Rob Duke and Robert Grimes were both successful in their three frames, with Clay Weidenbach and Norm Wood winning two from three. The Red team had four individual winners for their four frames.

RSL Woftam 12 d Flinders Ferals 3

Woftam got off to a flyer in this match, winning the first set 5-0 and Ferals were unable to recover sufficiently to seriously challenge their opponents.

Andrew Thorpe and Darren Strawbridge were the standout players for the winners with three from three, while Cameron Reid, Shannon Woolford and Matt Hayward all won two of their three frames.

The best player for the Ferals was Timm Thompson, who won two out of three frames.

Travellers Rest Blue 8 d Straight Outta Progress 7

The Blue team staged a remarkable comeback and a form reversal to win an exciting game that went right down to the wire.

Trailing 1-4 after the first set, the Blues drew level at 5-5, before trailing 6-7 in the deciding set. Simon McNicol and Josh Grantham nailed the last two frames to give their team a narrow win.

Best players were Grantham, McNicol and Terry McKenzie, who all won two from three, while Progress was best served by Ian Hinton with three wins from three and Jamie Wilkin with two from three.

Teams enjoyed a week off over the long weekend due to the State Carnival played in Adelaide.
