Round 6

With the undefeated ladder leaders, PABC Shooters, enjoying a bye, Travellers Gunners stood out as they continued their impressive form, while Central Bloods got back to winning ways.

Progress Cougars 8 tied with Travellers Rest Blue 8

Cougars and the Blue team could not be split after 16 frames in the Stirling derby.

Terry McKenzie proved to be the stand-out player of the night for Travellers, winning his four frames.

Shawn Reid was successful in two of his four attempts.

Will Tucker won his three frames for Cougars, with Rhys Bavington and Simon Watts enjoying success in three out of four and two out of three frames respectively.

Central Bloods 11 d Central Red 5

The Red team was able to tie the first and last sets of this match, but went missing in the second and third sets, where they were only able to win one of eight frames.

This was due to a solid performance by Bloods player Dale Khan, who won all of his four frames.

Khan was ably supported by Matt Hayward and Scott Mackinlay, each winning three of their four games.

Deane Adams, with two from three, was the only multiple frame winner for the Reds.

The emphatic win helps the Bloods bounce back from a disappointing fortnight, following a loss and a draw in their previous two matches.

RSL Cannons 11 d South Bulldogs 5

James Little, with four impressive wins, was the stand-out performer in his team’s convincing victory over Bulldogs.

Dick Elliot had three wins from four and Ian long won two of his four frames to provide solid support for Little.

Conversely, Bulldogs relied heavily on Andrew Reynolds, who won his two games coming off the interchange bench to be the only multiple frame winner for his team.

Travellers Gunners 15 d PABC Assassins 1

Assassins had to wait until the final frame of the night to get on the score board, when Norm Smith was able to take a point off a dominant Gunners  outfit.

In a match where Gunners had six undefeated players, Tim and Dave Allport starred with three wins apiece, supported by Anthony Grantham, Taylor Meyer and Dave Stirling, who all won their two games.

Chris McNeil won the only frame that he played.

Gunners remain undefeated after six rounds.

RSL Dynamite 10 d Flinders Ferals 6

After a disastrous start to the match where they failed to score in the opening set, Ferals fought back in the ensuing two sets to be a realistic chance entering the final stanza.

At 5-7, Ferals would have had believed they could pull off a remarkable come-from-behind win, but Dynamite rallied to take the deciding set 3-1 to finish convincing winners.

Clay Weidenbach showed his class to win his four frames, with Ashley Bemmerl and Norm Wood winning two from three and two from four respectively.

Neville Karger was again the best player for Ferals, recording three wins from his four frames, while Terry Forsyth was successful in two from four.
