What a night at the top of the City Air Express Carrick & District Pool League. Scorpions turned it on after their disappointment of last weeks reverse against Vikings with a great 9-5 win over League leaders Doagh Dragons. The match was over after eleven frames with Darren Whiteside ensuring Scorpions took all three points. It also means the Times Bar team leapfrog Dragons to share top spot in the table with Whitehead Trojans. Trojans knew they would not get it easy against stablemates The Vikings and indeed looked to be cruising to all three points as they led 6-2. But Vikings are improving all the time and stormed back to level at 6-6, Trojans were fortunate to win rack thirteen to ensure at least a point and no better man than the experienced Kenny English to go on last and he duly delivered much to the relief of Trojans Manager Tristan Scott-Heyes. Times Tigers notched up their second win on the trot to put daylight between themselves and bottom team Alpha with a close 8-6 win up in Rathcoole, Andy Briers won the all important 14th frame to complete a hat trick on the night, Alpha's Angie Carson also registered a fine hat trick. In the Greenisland Club derby match Colts gave a very good account of themselves but eventually succumbed 9-5 though Galacticos had to win the last four racks for the points. An Andy McMeekin hat trick wasn't enough to give Hit Men & Her any joy as Rab Brown's Ball Breakers ran out 8-6 winners, Joe Patton sealing the deal in the final frame.
