Devils make it six in a row

Devils have clinched their sixth ladies title in a row with a 12-pin victory over Crossfire Ladies at the Spitfire Club. The ladies league has been a much closer campaign this season and Devils had to battle against Mix Ups and Oakettes right up to the last week of fixtures , and one of these two teams will be runners up. Colliton Breezers and Crackerjacs make up the rest of the top five in what has been a most competitive season.

Section A run in – Patriots close in on second place

Barmy Army are already crowned as champions and it looks as if Patriots will finish as runners up, and will clinch second spot with a victory over Colliton Imps at the Goldies. Both Colliton Wide Boys and Breakaways could finish second if Patriots slip up.

Fixtures to play
Patriots 37pts – Colliton Imps (H)
Colliton Wide Boys 36pts – Wurzels (A)
Breakaways 36pts – Jolly Green Giants (A)

At the bottom Wool Misfits are already relegated while Wurzels will be relegated if Puddletown Wanderers beat Half Pints away on Thursday. If Wanderers lose then Wurzels could force a play off, but would need to beat Colliton Wide Boys

Secretaries Shield and Stickers up Cup

The men’s Secretaries Shield was won By Edd Legg of Greenstars beating Luke Short of Barmy Army in the final. Both players had scored 17 after two hands , but Edd took a 2-pin lead on the third hand, then both players hit 9 but on the final hand Luke hit 6 to leave Edd 5 to win.

The ladies Secretaries Shield was won by Mel Gosney of Devils beating Jane Fairless of Mix Ups in the final. After being behind Jane on the first hand, Mel then hit a single pin stick up of 16 to take the lead and hit another single pin stick up on the fourth hand of 13. Jane skittled well in the final and Mel still needed pins to win on the last hand.

The sticker up Cup was won by Callum Hounsome of Brewers Bees beating George Wilson of Vic Reeves in the Final. Callum raced into a 7 pin lead after two hands after starting with a stick up. Both players hit 8 on the third hand and then Callum went 1 more pin ahead on the next hand. George managed an 8 on the last hand to tie the game up which meant Callum needed just 1 to win the cup.
