First up Rich and Tony. Rich on first and off surprisingly soon gave skipper an early opportunity. Not to be and the game Became scrappy with plenty of goes. Tony eventually getting the balls back and made a steady 3k. With time against him Rich got a break but all to late. One against the break.
Game 2 Bryan and Geoff. Geoff off leaving the one up hanging over the 50 gave Bryan a good chance. Bryan also off soon Geoff balls back and no mistake this time 9k and touch.
Needing to get leg back maybe forced Paul against Dave. With the break and in terrific form Dave kept going to make 9k break with several recovery shots. This left Paul up against it and he ran out a quickfire 6k. 3-0.
Mid match and Ian against yours truly. Ian off with a faultless 8500 gave me no time and I was happy to play it out For just under 5. The rot stopped.
Next up Gary and Fitz. Gaz in a bit of form lately made a very good 7k giving Fitz just a squeak but Gary first to get them back and another 5k and they shook hands. Cue high fives and fist pumps. Game and match.
