Alpha 0-14 Rockers. The League Champions "Whiteabbey RBL Rockers" travelled to the League's wooden spoon holders "The Alpha". Although the hosts were unfortunate in losing 2 out of the first 3 frames, including an in off on the black, they had no answer to the clinical professionalism of the Rockers in the next 11 frames. W.Lewis, J.Johnston, R.Butler and A.Arbuthnot all scored 3/3 with Darren Whiteside on 2/2.

Teddy Bears 7-7 MSC Trojans. The visitors got off to a great start by winning the first 4 frames through A.McMeekin (2), J.Murdock and new European Individual Wheelchair Champion R.McMaw. It looked ominous for the Rangers Club team, but a splendid 4 frame burst of their own levelled the match at 4 a piece. On the scoreboard were P.Patterson, A.Lindsay, D.Millar and B.Fleming.  It was nip and tuck the rest of the match and probably only fair that at close of play the honours were shared in a 7-7 draw. M.McIlveany (2) and McMaw again, scored for MSC Trojans whilst Patterson, Millar and Lyndsay all registered their 2nd frame of the night for the Teddy Bears.

Valkyries 2-12 Spartans. As expected, Tommy Maguires Spartans won this match very comfortably. They led 7-0 at the interval and were on 10-0 before M.McCourt registered a frame for the hosts. Spartans went to 12-1 but the final frame of the evening was won by L.Ruddock for the Valkyries. On the scoresheet for Spartans were K.English (3), E.Martin (3), R.Hawkins (2), D.Lowe (2) and A.Wright (2)

Trojans 8-6 Scorpions. Well done to new boys The Trojans, who caused a big upset by beating Jonny Thompsons Scorpions. The ground work was done in the first half of the match when the hosts racked up a 5-2 lead. A point was guaranteed when they took the first 2 after the interval but 2 frames later A.Matthews sealed the win much to the delight of Manager G.McCormick. Scorpions rallied, albeit too late, with a brace from C.Montgomery Sr either side of a D.Millar win to take the last 3 frames of the match. Scoring for The Trojans were S.Hamilton (2), A.Matthews (2), G.Jones, W.Ross, T.Scott-Heyes and G.McCormick
