2018 Player of the Year

League Fixture 16 
Ballbreakers 10-4 Times Tigers
Alpha 1-13 Dragons
Colts 5-9 Hitmen & Her
Trojans 6-8 Galacticos
Scorpions 7-7 Vikings

Newly crowned Champions Scorpions looked as if they were going to steamroll Girvan Fleming's Whitehead Vikings team in a victory parade as they raced into an early 5-0 lead but what a comeback by the visitors, they won seven from the remaining nine frames to leave the York Road venue with a well earned point. The race for second is even tighter after tonights results with only a point seperatng four teams. Doagh Dragons lead the way after a 13-1 demolition against Alpha in Rathcoole whilst Galacticos are level on points in third after a solid performance away to previously second placed Whitehead Trojans. The Greenisland outfit raced into a 4-0 lead courtesy of a break and dish and two eight ball clearances and it was always an uphill battle for Trojans to recover though they did bring it back to 6-8. Rab Brown's Ball Breakers are now fourth after seeing off Times Tigers by 10-4 in the Greenisland WMSC and last but not least Hit Men & Her defeated Colts 9-5 in Greenisland.

SCORPIONS ARE 2018 CITYAIREXPRESS CARRICK & DISTRICT POOL LEAGUE CHAMPIONS

Congratulations to Colin Rafferty and his Scorpions Pool Team. The North Belfast outfit clinched the League Championship title tonight Tuesday 6th March and they done it in style with a resounding 13-1 win away over Alpha in Rathcoole. It's a well deserved win, when the chips were down, Scorpions delivered in the big matches.

In the scrap for second position Trojans at home to Hit Men and Her in Whitehead Rangers Club was definitely a game of two halves. The visitors were outstanding in the first session taking a healthy 5-2 lead but the hosts turned the tables in the second half bouyed by a superb Roisin Smith hat trick to take all three points in an 8-6 win. Doagh Dragons kept the pressure on Trojans courtesy of an 8-6 home win in McConnells over Ballbreakers. But they had to win the last two racks to secure the points, Kyle Kirkwood winning the all important final frame. In Greenisland Galacticos came from 0-3 down to register an 8-6 win over a gallant Vikings side, Paul Harris winning Frame 14. Last but not least Colts travelled to the Times Bar and came away with all three points against The Tigers. In a tight match the visitors Thomas Kidd won the last frame to give his side an 8-6 result.

The dogfight for second spot continues, Trojans regain the position after a 9-5 away win at Greenisland Colts whilst a similar win by Ballbreakers keeps them well in the mix, they trail Trojans by only a single frame. Galacticos were untroubled, easily seeing off pointless Alpha by 12-2 in the Greenisland WMSC but the most exciting match of the night unfolded in the Monkstown SC where Doagh Dragons led 3-1 early doors but had to take the final frame off the match to rescue a point at 7-7 against Hit Men & Her.

League Fixture 8

Alpha 6-8 Times Tigers
Scorpions 9-5 Dragons
Ballbreakers 8-6 Hitmen & Her
Colts 5-9 Galacticos
Trojans 8-6 Vikings

What a night at the top of the City Air Express Carrick & District Pool League. Scorpions turned it on after their disappointment of last weeks reverse against Vikings with a great 9-5 win over League leaders Doagh Dragons. The match was over after eleven frames with Darren Whiteside ensuring Scorpions took all three points. It also means the Times Bar team leapfrog Dragons to share top spot in the table with Whitehead Trojans. Trojans knew they would not get it easy against stablemates The Vikings and indeed looked to be cruising to all three points as they led 6-2. But Vikings are improving all the time and stormed back to level at 6-6, Trojans were fortunate to win rack thirteen to ensure at least a point and no better man than the experienced Kenny English to go on last and he duly delivered much to the relief of Trojans Manager Tristan Scott-Heyes. Times Tigers notched up their second win on the trot to put daylight between themselves and bottom team Alpha with a close 8-6 win up in Rathcoole, Andy Briers won the all important 14th frame to complete a hat trick on the night, Alpha's Angie Carson also registered a fine hat trick. In the Greenisland Club derby match Colts gave a very good account of themselves but eventually succumbed 9-5 though Galacticos had to win the last four racks for the points. An Andy McMeekin hat trick wasn't enough to give Hit Men & Her any joy as Rab Brown's Ball Breakers ran out 8-6 winners, Joe Patton sealing the deal in the final frame.
