Week 17 - Picadore find peak form

Scarborough Flooring Division One

Rolo were made to work for a 7-3 victory against Mavericks. Martin Lowe was able to win each of his singles matches, but an in-form Mavericks took three points: two for Ross Dransfield and one for Macaulay Youngson. Moke Warburton’s excellent season continued as she made short work of Youngson and Nigel Clapham.

Corinthians reduced Rolo’s lead at the top of the table to two points following a 10-0 defeat of Nomads. With only three rounds of matches left, Rolo, with what appears to be an easier run-in, look to be slight favourites.

Mike Fenby returned as James Builders took advantage of an under-strength Hackness A to record an 8-2 win. Simon James chalked up three wins for the builders with Julian James and Mike Fenby both winning a brace. James Hodgson was Hackness’ best player with two wins.

The bottom two clubs in the division played out a 5-5 draw. Scalby Old Boys’ Matty Whilde was player of the match, bagging his first treble of the season. He battled through five ends to complete defeats of Mike Wheatley and Noel Seery who both took two wins for Hobnobs A.

Glazetech Division Two

Both Picadore A and Picadore B swept to 8-2 wins. Nigel Chandley was unbeaten as the A side beat Bingo Mcvitie. Richard Lloyd and Christopher Smith also won two singles, while Jack Louth was Bingo’s best player on the night, defeating both Smith and Lloyd, the former with a score of 9-11, 14-12. 8-11, 11-8, 8-11.

Steve Atkinson and Tony Ingham hit trebles in Picadore B’s win over Eastfield Warriors. Johnny Csordas added two. Eastfield’s reply was through Richard Lear with a singles win and the doubles with Karine Piham.

Trinity and Hobnobs B were looking for the points that could take them closer to the top of the league but had to settle for a 5-5 draw. Piotr Ozon was the player of the match with a treble. There were braces for Hobnobs’ Ann Seery and Allan Thurling that both included five-end victories over John Warburton.

Scarborough Flooring Division Three

Liberators Southside rotated their squad and included new league player Shaun Wells. The outcome was still the same as they steamrollered Eastfield Fusion’s young side 10-0. Nigel Escreet and John Farrell rounded out the scoring.

The division’s other matches were much closer. Rogues and Joshers had a 6-4 win over Desperatum that included a treble for Simon Boddy. John Blaymires (Rogues) and Richard Mirfin (Desperatum) were the other stand-out players, winning two each.

In Liberators Northside’s 6-4 win over Delphstone, Josh Pickin was the player of the match. The Delphstone youngster won a treble, with each secured within three ends. Liberators points were shared among Kath Edwards (2 wins and the doubles), Naomi Edwards (one win) and Brian Goodliffe who matched Kath Edwards’ results.
