Doagh Dragons move 4 clear at the top


Dragons V Tigers
There was no Christmas or New Year hangover for the Dragons as they picked up where they left off with a demolition of the Tigers to remain the only unbeaten team in the Carrick & District Pool League sponsored by Times Bar.They won both sessions 6-1. Best for Dragons were Kyle Kirkwood, Gee Crawley, Gareth Fears, Aaron Leslie and Michael Wilson all 2/2. Best for Tigers were John Fulton & Alan Corrigan both 1/3. Final score Dragons 12-2 Tigers.

Colts v Vikings
Colts knew this would be a tough fixture. Back in October they raced to a 1-6 lead only to finish 7-7. T Kidd got the Colts off to a winning start beating new signing, Alan Johnston with great potting.
Colts thought they were going two up with another great clearance from J Patton but he went in-off on the Black giving A Rolston the win and momentum to the Vikings, who raced into a 1-3 lead with wins for Ryan Scott& Tommy Fleming.Colts hit back with three of the own William Mccann, Paul Watters & J Patton to lead 4-3 at the break.
Soon Colts were 6-3 up before wins for Vikings Captain R Scott & A Johnston brought the Score back to 6-5. J Patton & A Watters made sure the Colts took all three points. T Kidd & R Scott both on Hat tricks. Captain Scott looking for a bonus point, hung his last ball over the corner pocket. T Kidd took out a great finish to deny the Vikings and complete his hat trick.
Final Score: Colts 9-5 Vikings

Cockweasels V Alpha
Alpha pool team got off to a great start in the first half leading 5.2. Michael Lowry setting the tone with a b/d in the first frame. The half time team talk from Gordon McCormick worked wonders for the Cockweasels. They won six of the next seven frames to pip Alpha to the victory. Final Score Cockweasels 8 Alpha 6

Trojans V Galacticos
Galacticos visited the Whitehead Trojans. Trojans got off to a good start and took 3 of the first 4 frames. After another few hard fought battles Trojans finished the first session 4-3 up. It was definitely a night for the grinders! Pretty soon the match was on a knife edge at 5-5. Trojans moved 7-5 up after Andrew Arbuthnot and Kenny English wins. The points were all still to play for. Gary Wallace made it 6-7 taking frame 13 to guarantee the bonus point at the very least. Up stepped evergreen, Kenny English for the last frame. A win or a draw rested in the hands of the ‘Special One’. All Paul Harris could do then was watch, while big Kenny mopped them up to claim a good break and dish. Final score Trojans 8-6 Galacticos

Scorpions V Hitmen & Her
The Monkstown team had a fire in their bellies as they won 4 out of the first five frames with wins for Andy McMeekin, Mark Mcmeekin, Rab Mcmaw and Robert Henderson. Scorpions dug deep with wins for Paul Kerr, Lee Hatchet Mcilreavy and Colin Rafferty. 3-4 at the interval. Lee McIlreevy levelled at 4-4 before Paul Henderson and Sara Greenberg put the Hitmen and her on the hill for a bonus point (at the very minimum) at 4-6. Mervyn Mcilvenny and Lee McIlreevy brought the Scorpions back to level again at 6-6. Paul Kerr put Scorpions ahead for the first time in the match and Captain Colin Rafferty secured the three points in one of the league champions hardest fought victories. This result saw Scorpions leapfrog Galacticos into second place in the league. Final score Scorpions 8-6 Hitmen & Her.

Carrick League New Years Day Subway Shield

The New Year’s Day Subway Shield was another great day out!
Two groups of 7 battled it out for the top 4 spots.
The 4 that got through were John McClean and Gary Wallace and Paul Harris and Christopher Strain.
Cujo, who is no stranger to a New Year’s Day final put big Gromit out and in the other semi final Chris Strain managed beat Paul Harris.

The final was a long, drawn out affair with both players finding good quality pool in the race to 3. Fair play to Cujo for calling a foul on himself that nobody saw to let Chris take the title. Always a true sportsman and good ambassador for the game. 👏👏👏 Both players had a good battle!

Massive thanks as always go to the Greenisland Club and to Alan for the lovely pot of stew! Of course Subway, SKC Gaming and the club also did their bit by providing platters for throughout the proceedings and the £300 bonus prize pot.

Happy New Year everyone and here’s to a great 2019 with many more B&Ds to be had!

Re-arranged League Fixture

Trojans 8-6 Scorpions

Scorpions lost their unbeaten League record when they travelled down to Whitehead to play Trojans in this re-arranged League Fixture. It had all looked good for the League Champions early doors as they raced into a 2-0 lead but Tristan Scott-Heyes' hosts fought hard and led 4-3 at the interval. The first two racks of the second session were shared but Trojans then won three on the bounce with Steeky Carson winning the all important twelfth to secure the win and an important three points. Scorpions took the last two frames to register a bonus point but it's a severe setback in their attempt to regain their title. Best on the night were Ed McDowell (Trojans) and the visitors Captain Colin Rafferty both with fine hat tricks.

Hit Men and Her 8-6 Scorpions
Dragons 6-8 Galacticos

Hit Men & Her are finally showing the form we know they are capable of after a slow start to this season. And they are determined to regain the Knock Out Cup after a superb Semi Final win against League Champions The Scorpions in Monkstown SC.

Unbeaten League leaders Doagh Dragons lost their first match of the season in their Semi Final against Greenisland Galacticos. Like Hit Men & Her, Galacticos trailed 5-6 with three to play, but up stepped Neil McFaul with two wins and Shaun McAlister with one to send Derek Whiteside's team into the Final of the Knock Out Cup

Lee McIlreavy made it 3 with a much swifter frame. Vikings dug deep and Thomas Fleming, Ryan Scott and Ian McCalmont drew level at 3-3. A swift break and dish from Lee McIlreavy put the Scorpions narrowly ahead at the interval. The second half began the same as the first with wins for Mervyn McIlvenny, Darren Whiteside and Paul Kerr.
