2nd Legs - Tuesday 18th February

Knock Out Cup winners Swift Bar signalled their intention of also winning the Home & Away Cup with a 12-2 thrashing of stablemates The Warriors. They won both sessions 6-1 with hat tricks apiece for Rab Butler, Dee Irwin and team Captain Paul Roberts. League leaders Cowboys had a convincing 11-3 win away to Teddy Bears, with Chris Carson bagging a fine treble. It's still all to play for in the 2nd leg between Scorpions and HM&H in two weeks time in Monkstown. Jonny Thompson's team lead 8-6 but will do well to be in the draw for the Quarter Finals. Davy Montgomery won the all important 14th frame for Scorpions to give them a narrow lead. Both Whitehead teams Spartans and Trojans were playing in the Greenisland Club against Barbarians and GWMSC respectively and both headed back up the coast with solid wins.
