Week 7 Report – w/b 6/11/2017
The Division 1 table reads Misfits and Smugglers on 43, with Torrington A on 42. Is this a shock of seismic proportions? Have Torrington lost their way? This week Misfits beat them 6-4 with two each from Keith le Milliere and Daniel Moore. Ben Taylor won all of his, but a critical match was between Torrington’s Chris Thompson and Peter Kneil. Chris lost the first game 11-1, but eventually won 12 -10 in the fifth.
