Hitmen & Her 10-4 Times Tigers
Galacticos 4-10 Dragons
Alpha 4-10 Vikings
Trojans 8-6 Ballbreakers
Scorpions 11-3 Colts

In the big match of the night it was Dragons Pool Team from Doagh who took the honours with a convincing 10-4 away win at reigning Champions Galacticos. The match was over after only nine frames as Dragons raced into an 8-1 lead. Galacticos took three from the last five to add some respectability to the scoreline. Last seasons Runners Up Scorpions were clinical as they took all three points in an 11-3 home win against Greenisland Colts. Hit Men & Her got their campaign up and running with a 10-4 home win against League debutantes Times Tigers, whilst Vikings also registered their first points in a 10-4 away win against Alpha. Last but not least Trojans and Ball Breakers fought out a very close match in Whitehead, with Kenny English having to win the fourteenth and final frame of the night to give the home team an 8-6 win.

It's very early days but Johnny Mackay leads the way in the Player of the Year Competion, The Dragons cueist is on 6/6 after two League fixtures.

Times Tigers 6-8 Scorpions
Dragons 9-5 Hitmen & Her
Alpha 4-10 Galacticos
Ballbreakers 12-2 Vikings
Trojans 9-5 Colts

Champions Galacticos got their title defence off to a resounding start with a 10-4 win away to Alpha in Rathcoole but it was a much tighter affair for last seasons Runners Up Scorpions as they trailed stablemates and League debutantes Tigers in their derby fixture by 5-2 at the interval. Scorpions rallied and just got over the line with an 8-6 win thanks to a last frame success from Johnny Johnston. Dragons overcame Hit Men & Her 9-5 and will surely be up there at the end of the season, Kyle Kirkwood having assembled a very strong squad. Another team who have strengthened are Rab Brown's Ballbreakers and they easily seen off Vikings by 12-2. Last but not least Trojans struggled early doors but eventually got stronger in overcoming Colts by 9-5 in Whitehead.

GREENISLAND GALACTICOS ARE CHAMPIONS


Final League Fixture 18/18 - 14th March

Spartans 3-11 Hitmen & Her
Greenisland Colts 9-5 Vikings
McConnells 10-4 Alpha
Scorpions 5-9 Greenisland Galacticos
Ball Breakers 8-6 Trojans

After one of the most exciting season conclusions on record, Greenisland Galacticos are 2016-2017 City Air Express Carrick & District League Champions. The top four teams had been in the mix right up until the last couple of weeks but it eventually came down to the final fixture between Scorpions and Galacticos with the hosts needing a draw or win and for the visitors nothing less than a win would do. The match was nip and tuck and on a knife edge at half time as Derek Whiteside's Galacticos led by a single frame 4-3. But two massive frames straight after the half time interval both went to the Greenisland team and gave them much appreciated breathing space at 6-3. Scorpions reduced it to 6-4 but but two frames later Dean McDonagh potted the Championship winning black ball to send his manager and team mates wild with delight as they claimed the title they last won back in 2013-2014. But a big well done to Scorpions too, they had a fantastic season for "just a bunch of guys" as they fondly like to be know as, Frames went as follows -

Scorpions 0-1 Galacticos - Dean McDonagh 
Scorpions 1-1 Galacticos - Paul Kerr
Scorpions 1-2 Galacticos - Rab Butler
Scorpions 2-2 Galacticos - Rab Fee
Scorpions 2-3 Galacticos - Shaun McAlister
Scorpions 2-4 Galacticos - Dean McDonagh
Scorpions 3-4 Galacticos - Rab Fee
Scorpions 3-5 Galacticos - Shaun McAlister
