A close match all round in this game, a tie in game 3 and a last ball win by 20 in the last which meant points were drawn then the Home team won by 130 on count back, Good luck to the OKJ next week and thanks for an enjoyable evening on the "unlevel" Jenny Top

This week saw the quarter-finals of the Rix Cup knock out competition of the Hastings Bar Billiards League with special performances and highlights in several games.
Colin Southouse as the Nags Head B team skipper got his team away with a win in their match against Old King John. James Bown followed with another win for Nags after trailing for most of his game. Mark Bailey secured a lastball tie in his clash with Alec Pope to give OKJ a whiff of a chance. Garry Tomlin then stepped up with a decisive victory for OKJ and after a very slow start Nigel Doe scored a last ball win by 20 points for OKJ that meant the match was tied 2.5-2.5. Calculators revealed a 130 point win for OKJ on countback.
Prince of Wales also had a tied leg in their match against Jenny Lind B. The participants were Linda Challis for Jenny B and Ann Kelly for PoW. However Ann hit the target in her other game and another strong showing from Pete Crabtree with two wins saw Prince home with KC Challis recording for Jenny B to give the 3.5 -1.5 result in Prince's favour.
Royal Albert went through against Nags Head A, led by another amazing personal best from Mike Daw. On a night of low scoring Mike showed the way with 14740 and was supported by wins from Nick Speight and Denis Cole. Steve McGill and Clive Minihane battled to keep Nags A in touch, but Albert managed a 3-2 win.
In the most straightforward result of the night Sandy Harmer recorded 8680 in his win for Ashburnham Arms against Jenny Lind A. He was backed up by father Roy, Dave White and Ron Young. Billy Skinner was the winner for Jenny A and kept the score to 4-1 for Ash.
