Tuplin’s terrific finishing boosts Outsiders’ charge

IN division one this week Wainfleet Outsiders maintained their push for the title by thrashing Lib Lads 12-0.

There were a glut of high finishes, the best of which went to D. Tuplin with 170, along with three 140s.

C. Lees had two decent finishes on 85 and 97 and M. Bell chipped in with a 111 finish.

R. Taylor, two 140s and a 121, and E. Hammond, 150 and a 140, top scored for the Lads.

WMC Steelers are still on top on leg difference thanks to a 9-3 win over Ex-Service Cobras.

M. Thompson with 121, 123, 138 and two 140s, and M. Simpson with 180 for the Steelers were the pick of the high scores.

The final game in the division was an in-house derby at Ex-Service, which saw the 501s get the better of the Sports 8-4.

R. Gibson and C. Redford got the decisive last double.

In division two WMC Aces tightened their grip at the top thanks to a 7-5 win over Seaview. W. Sumner hit a 119 finish and G. Poulter chipped in with 125 and 180 for the Seaview.

The in-house derby at Welcome saw the Anchors prevail 9-3, leaving the Hillbillies rooted at the foot of the table.

The Ex-Service C maintained their push for promotion with a 7-5 win over Liberal VS, a result that leaves the Ex joint second.

D. Martin with 122, two 125s and a 140 top scored for Lib, along with M. Resson with 140 and 130 and M. Duckworth with 122 and 125 for the same team.

Division three saw a no sheet from Lillywhites. Rule eight applies and a 9-3 win for Highwayman.

Ex-Service A has a resounding 10-2 win over Cricket Club, and Liberal Adams Family are now six points clear in second place after their 8-4 win over Royal Oak.

K. Law scored a 134 and 138 for Adams, and a 180 for Royal Oak’s T. Holland.

This week will see the singles competition at Seaview. Enter on the night for £1.

Finally there is a glut of no sheets at the moment, which makes updating the league very difficult. The lower ranked teams are the main culprits.

Two outstanding games desperately need playing - division three’s Lillywhites v Adams Family and division one’s Steelers v Outsiders.
