League champions Seaview Raiders were away this week at the Ex-Service C.
Ex-Service were looking for a win to give them a chance of the runner-up spot. It was all finely balanced at three-all after the singles, but Seaview took the first two doubles to gain the win. Ex-Service took the final pairs but the damage was done, with Seaview gaining a 7-5 win, a result that drops the Ex-Service down from second to fourth.
The second spot in this division went to the Adams Family, having been given their outstanding game by the Vine earlier in the week they took on stablemates Liberal Us, with Us springing a suprise by beating them 7-5.

This division’s final game took place at the Vine, where Vine A entertained Cricket Club. A classic game followed. Cricket Club romped into a 5-1 singles lead, then the Vine A upped their game by taking the first two pairs to leave the game level at 5-5. But the Cricket Club held their nerve to record a 7-5 win. A Ainsworth scored 123, 140, and M Forman 123, 140 for Cricket Club, while Vine A’s S Rands hit 121, 140, T Clingan 180, and M Broome hit a 120 checkout, which takes the high finish prize in this division.
