End of Week 12 - Warriors Conquer Grasshoppers To Catch Up Ground

Warriors took advantage of the teams around them not playing by convincingly dispatching of Grasshoppers 8-1.

Dave Wood and Ian Tweedale were too strong for Grasshoppers as they won three apiece, whilst Keith Skarz chipped in with two, losing 3-1 to Jake Clarke. The win moves them to second place it the league, just three points behind leaders Greetland, who have a game in hand.

YMEN picked up an impressive 6-3 win over Panthers. A return to form for Shamir Bose saw him pick up an excellent win over Ben Fillingham, whilst Fraser Krischke picked up two wins to seal victory for his side.

Division 2

Hotshots' dominance in Division 2 continued as they defeated Tribal 1 7-2. Lewis Palmer was on hand once again with three victories, whilst Steve Marshall and Jonny Heslop chipped in with two apiece.

Evergreens' poor run of form got worse as they were thrashed 9-0 by Oakland Raiders, with the trio of Dave Whiteley and Stephen and Matthew Horrocks dropping just five games on their way.

Meanwhile, Ovenden Sports made it back to back wins as they overcame Dolphins 7-2. Dolphins had gone 2-1 ahead as Denise Scott and Stephen Dunn beat Terry Allington and Peter McMullen respectively. However Ovended recovered to take the next six sets, with Saj Mohammed winning three.

Division 3

Leopards lost ground in the title race as they survived a scare to defeat Tribal 2 5-4. Tribal youngster Nicholas Miller excellently defeated Jake Challenger and Ronnie McNamara, whilst Yasser Arfat defeated McNamara before Challenger conceded his match with Arfat through illness. Thankfully for Leopards, Richard Musgrove's excellent season continued as he won all three matches to salvage a narrow win.

Ramsbridge duly grasped at the chance to increase their lead at the top as they defeated Old Town Robins 8-1. Whilst David Warburton defeated Shane Roberts, John Schofield and Damien McCrink won three each to put pressure on Leopards going into the next round of fixtures.

A round of applause goes to Phillip Parry and John Korner, who gave Sowerby 2 a 6-3 victory despite playing with two men. They both beat Jokers' trio to take the points.

Finally, Netamatix made it three wins on the bounce with victory over Old Town Hounds. Despite Neil Coneron winning two for the hounds, three wins from Netamatix's Martyn Halliday and two from John Wasilewski and Michael Craven secured victory.
