Recap

As we progress into the meat of the season, the Cock ‘A’ have commenced their climb up the Division 1 table with another grinding win. The newly refurbished Cock Inn proved a pleasant backdrop to some closely fought legs on what proved to be a very challenging table.

Tony got the home side off to a winning start courtesy of a strong start in the leg. Ian made a strong comeback toward the end once he had started to understand the rather unique challenges presented by the table. A little more time and he would no doubt have caught Tony. Nevertheless – a great start for the hosts.

Mary struggled with the table in the second leg – but then again so did Stuart. Neither player was able to make or keep a significant score although Mary managed to eek out the victory.

Andy looked to have also read the script of the previous leg as he lost his opening 1k+ break. Mark was unable to capitalise and Andy was given another opportunity almost immediately. Mark never looked in control of his game while Andy steadily built a small but significant lead on a table that neither player could work out. An important win for the visitors to get them back into the match.

Rob was always in control of the fourth leg but Sonya did make him work for it as she secured her highest league score and first ever mark on the Ranking Points chart – a performance worthy of the Player of the Match nod.

In the final leg Lorin lost his opening 2k+ break after misjudging a table roll the meant he missed the ball completely when attempting to hit a ball near one of the white pegs. Jim soon took his chance and managed to build a lead of a thousand or so. Try as he might, Lorin could not get the break back while Jim added another 1500 to his lead. Lorin finally got the break back – arguably with just enough time left – but missed his split shot to present Jim with the game.

A strong performance from the higher ranked side and another painful lesson for the Bees.
