'Yo-yo’s taught a lesson on the Live Stream’
Court Snapbacks took on the Postie Yo-yo’s this week, 25th October, in the Jet sponsored Wednesday League’s featured YouTube live streamed match, and although Perry Saunders and Kev Pike took a frame a-piece for the Yo-yo’s to go 2-1 up, their team may as well have put their cues away for the remainder of the match because, the Snapbacks took the remaining 12 frames in a row. Yo-yo’s had their chances on a few occasions to advance however, the class between the two teams told in the end and, the Snapbacks made no mistake in taking their chances to secure an extremely comprehensive win in the end which still leaves them 1 point clear at the top of the table while the Yo-yo’s drop down to 8th.
Final Score: Court Snapbacks 13 – 2 Postie Yo-yo’s
An All-Court affair took place between In The Act and Gimme A Break.

In The Act’s Ben Peppercorn and Peter Ransome pulled two frames back before Ian Lea for Gimme A Break halted their come-back and secured the match in the 13th. In the Act did take the last two frames as well to make the overall score as close as it can possibly be but this narrow defeat for them in the end, sees Court In The Act drop to 4th while Court Gimme A Break move up to 3rd in the table. Final Score: Court In The Act 7 – 8 Court Gimme A Break

With Ewan Peacock taking the 11th to reduce the deficit for the Boys, things were looking brighter however, that really was as good as it got because the Young-un’s made no mistake with the last 4 frames by taking all of them, including young Tyler Clues securing the all important 12th. This now sees the Young-un’s move up to 5th and the Borough Boys still holding on to 9th spot in the table.

'Gold not overawed by the Legends'
The Stanground Carpets & Flooring sponsored Thursday League’s featured YouTube live streamed match saw the Court Gold host the Court Legends.

Heron Warlords welcomed the Quinns Muppets and the Muppets, at 7-3, were sitting on a comfortable lead going into the final session. Any idea that the Warlords still had a chance to win the match though were quickly extinguished when the Muppets Joe Haywood and Anthony Pask took their chances to secure the match win however, with Gareth Mears, Liz Dizney and Dee Coogan all taking their final frames for the Warlords, the match ended much closer than it was starting to look. The Muppets in 3rd have now increased the daylight between themselves and 4th spot, but this loss also sees the Warlords drop one place to 5th.
Final Score: Heron Warlords 6 – 9 Quinns Muppets.
PSL Lions were up against Court Fat Wanna Be Slim and, with both teams prior to this still without a win this season, this was always going to be a crucial match for both. It was ‘honours even’ by the end of the second session, including a ‘break & dish’ from Paolo Batista, setting things up nicely for the final session. Paolo Batista and Roy Hasdell, for the Lions, then took a frame each leaving them needing just the one more for the match win.

Cross Keys Silver, were looking to make an ‘advance on the summit’ when hosting the Court Posties and, in the end, they ended up with only being one frame short of a perfect score in their attempt to do just that. It took until the 13th frame for the Posties to register a frame win via Craig Harbisher and in doing so, stopping the white-wash over his team but, that really was as good as it got for them. Silver took the final two frames as well and this very comprehensive win sees Silver move to the top of the table with a nice amount of daylight between themselves and 2nd spot. The Posties now see themselves slip to the foot of the table.
Final Score: Cross Keys Silver 14 – 1 Court Posties.
