Champions The Greenisland Galacticos travelled to Carrick to take on Dee McIlwaine’s Teddy Bears.  The visitors without a full team held their own going into the break 4-3 up. Despite hat-tricks from Chris Carson & John McClean, the visitors were unable to complete the remaining frames giving the Teddy Bears an 8-6 victory and securing the double over the Champions. Best for the host was C McCrea with a well taken hat-trick. League Leaders The Swift travelled to take on the Alpha and, with a gap opening at the top of the table, Paul Roberts’ men were leaving nothing to chance as they demolished the hosts 13-1 with a hat-trick from Rab Butler and well-taken braces from Dee Irwin, Kyle Kirkwood, Andy Arbuthnot and Stuart McLean.  Credit where it’s due, for the hosts Angie Carson taking a frame. The Whitehead Spartans travelled to Whitehouse to take on Johnny Thompson’s Scorpions.  With a fine run of form from both teams, this was set up to be another tight match. With the first 9 frames going either way, the Spartans pulled out a 2 frame lead to go 6-4 up before another Scorpion 3 frame burst put them on the hill at 7-6. Kenny English got his name on the score sheet for a share of the points in the last. Best for the hosts Paul Kerr with a well taken hat-trick & Colin Rafferty 2/3 and for the visitors S McWhirter 2/2 & S Johnston 2/3. The Cowboys played host to stablemates The Warriors and went into the break 4-3 up.  After the break Hugh McMurtry’s men won the first 3 to put themselves on the hill at 7-3. Clare Roberts’ team didn’t let their heads drop with Johnny Johnson completing his hat-trick to kick start a 4 frame come back to steal a share of the points. Best for the hosts Pete McCaffery with a well taken hat-trick and Marty Goudie with 2/3. The Doagh Weapons entertained The Eastway and took the first session 5-2.  The second half was a different matter with the Rathcoole lads getting themselves in with a shout of a share of the spoils only for talisman Iain Britton to claim the last and complete another hat-trick.  Rab McCullough added another of his own with the rest of the Weapons with a well taken brace. Best for the visitors Trevor Greer 2/2 and manager Davy Flanigan 2/3. Greenisland Colts played host to their stablemates The Greenisland Working Men’s Club, Glen Burns men raced into a 4-1 lead before the Colts took the last 2 of the session to go into the break trailing by 1.  Harry Warwick’s Colts took the first of the second half to level the match before GWMC got down to business to win the next five frames to win the match 9-5. Whitehead Trojans played host to the Hitmen and Her and were hoping last outing’s form would continue.  However, this was not to be the case as Paul Henderson got back onto the hat-trick trail, helped along with a rare Andy McMeekin hat-trick and manager, Robert Henderson with a well-taken brace took care of this match, winning 10-4.  Best for the hosts C Hobson 2/3.
