Spartans 7-7 Monkstown
R.Hawkins put Spartans 1-0 up with a controlled opening frame and K.English soon doubled the home sides lead. But Monkstown came storming back to lead 3-2 through R.Nelson and the Henderson brothers Robert and Paul. The final 2 of the first session were shared, S.Hamilton for the Spartans and R.Henderson again for visitors. 4-3 to Monkstown at the break. In keeping with the match pattern the hosts then regained the lead at 5-4 courtesy of D.Lowe and Hawkins with his 2nd of the night. But it was short lived as a pinpoint 8 ball clearance from Nelson and another win for P.Henderson put Monkstown in the lead for the 3rd time in the match at 6-5. Back came Maguires Spartans yet again to guarantee themselves at least a point with frames for English and McWhirter. But the honours on the night were shared when P.Henderson won his 3rd frame to take a point back up to Monkstown SC, much to the delight of Manager Sara Greenberg. Best performers in the match were P.Henderson on 3/3 and R.Nelson on 2/2.
