Trojans 6-8 Scorpions

Scorpions move three points clear at the top of the City Air Express Carrick & District Pool League after a thrilling 8-6 away win over second placed Whitehead Trojans. The North Belfast team trailed 4-3 at the break in a topsy turvy match but a sublime clearance from Gary Wallace in the final rack put his team in pole position as we reach the half way mark in the League calendar. And what a result for this seasons newcomers Times Tigers, they trailed a very strong Doagh Dragons team 6-3 but rallied to register a memorable 8-6 success, a scoreline that puts a severe dent in Dragons title ambitions. Tigers won the final five frames of the night, Stephen Simpson bringing home all three points in the last rack. Ball Breakers leapfrog Galacticos after success in the Greenisland derby match, Chris Carson winning the all important fourteenth frame in another match that ended 8-6. Hit Men & Her continued their recent good form with an untroubled 11-3 win at home to Alpha in Monkstown and last but not least Whitehead Vikings travelled to Greenisland and came away with all three points courtesy of a 9-5 win over Colts.

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.

A huge shock in the City Air Express Carrick & District Pool League tonight as previously unbeaten League leaders The Scorpions crashed to Girvan Fleming's lowly Vikings in the Whitehead Rangers Club.

Trojans put the disappointment of their loss to Hit Men & Her behind them with a convincing 10-4 away win in Greenisland over Derek Whiteside's Galacticos.

Vikings 6-8 Hitmen & Her
Galacticos 3-11 Scorpions
 
It's as you were at the top of the CityAirExpress Carrick & District Pool League after the fifth League Fixture with the top three teams all winning. Scorpions away to Galacticos was expected to be a tight affair but Colin Rafferty's Scorps raced into a 6-1 interval lead and never looked back eventually winning by 11-3. It's a big setback for Derek Whiteside's Galacticos who now trail by six points in the defence of their crown. In Doagh, Greenisland Colts took a 4-3 lead into the break but Dragons won six from seven in the second half to stay level on points with The Scorpions at the top. Also joint top on 13 points are Whitehead Trojans, Tristan Scott-Heyes team seeing off The Tigers by 12-2 in the Times Bar. Ball Breakers and Hit Men & Her stay within punching distance of the leaders after 9-5 and 8-6 wins away to Alpha and Vikings respectively.

Vikings 8-6 Times Tigers
Dragons 7-7 Trojans
Colts 9-5 Alpha
Scorpions 7-7 Ball Breakers
Galacticos 7-7 Hitmen & Her

Another fantastic week of action in the Carrick & District Pool League seen the top three teams all draw. Dragons led Trojans 3-0 in Doagh but the Whitehead team came storming back to lead 4-3 at the interval and 7-6 with one to play. Up stepped Dragons captain Kyle Kirkwood with a fine clearance to give both teams a point a piece. In the Times Bar the visitors Ball Breakers trailed 3-1 but like Trojans they too came back to lead 4-3 at half time and 7-6 with one to play. This time it was Gary Wallace who saved the day for Scorpions to keep his team joint top of the table. In another exciting match Hit Men & Her minus the Henderson brothers raced into an unlikely 7-1 lead away to Champions Galacticos in Greenisland but the hosts stormed back to take all six remaining frames, Paul Harris winning Frame 14 which at the business end of the season could maybe prove vital. Girvan Fleming's Vikings made it two wins from four with a tight 8-6 success over League debutantes Times Tigers, Craig Johnston and Ian McCalmont winning the final two racks from 6-6. And last but not least Greenisland Colts got their first three points of the season with a solid win over Alpha. Colts trailed 5-4 but rallied to take five on the trot for a 9-5 scoreline.

Knockout Cup Prelims

Ball Breakers 7-8 Tigers (after Play Off Frame)
Galacticos 8-7 Trojans (after Play Off Frame)

If the rest of the CREATIVE TILES KNOCK OUT CUP is as half as exciting as these two Prelims then we are in for a treat. Both matches played in the Greenisland WMSC went the distance and both Play Off Frames ended dramatically. Davy Montgomery was the hero for Times Tigers as he won Frame 15 when his opponent unintentionally potted the black during the frame and for Galacticos it was Trevor Whiteside who steered his team through to the next round when his Trojan opponent potted both black and white. Great stuff, well done all four teams.

Draw for Knock Out Cup Quarter Finals - Tuesday 14th November
