High scorers of week 2 were Horkesley C with a 9-1 victory over Rowhedge in a tough first match for their new team D team (made up of Dan Rhodes , Dave Harrison and Neil Huatan). The wiles of Ken Lewis, Paul Brownlie and Richard Kemp proved difficult to counter bar a singleton for Neil Huatan against Paul Brownlie. No such trouble for Rowhedge’s E team however, with the experience of John Owen, Martin Edwards and Pete Simmonds proving enough to overcome Walton A 8-2 in a strong home win.
Neil Freeman took a good maximum in a 6-4 away victory over Lawford’s finest, whilst Dedham A’ s Mike Tracey pipped just as unbeaten dad Paul to POM in a 6-4 win over a Matt Horrocks enhanced Uni A. Elsewhere B’s Walton and Lawford fought out a draw with John Rice posting his second 3 singles wins in a row on the home table at Walton.
These results leave 3 teams undefeated so far, namely Horkesley C, Rowhedge E and (gameless this week) Pegasus A, with the first named teams now occupying the promotion spots. Rowhedge D and Essex Uni have work to do but it is early days in a long season.
