Division 1
You know when you've been "kippled"!
There was tension, high drama and some controversy at Spotland Club on Wednesday
evening. At the start of round 8 Blue Pits Rovers found themselves 5 points behind so
needed to win the round by at least 6 points to grab victory! Without going into too
much detail they did it with the help of a "spare question" and so won the round 10-4
and snatched victory by 1 point 50-49. It was a hollow victory as one of the Blue Pits
Rovers team who wanted to remain nameless admitted it was a match they didn't deserve
to win and that Spotland were the better team on the night.
Elsewhere although they scored well Lancashire Fold lost both the quiz and the gallon to
a rejuvenated Roebuck Romanies who now must be considered as serious title
contenders. There were also victories for Woodside Club and Bay Horse Bandits to keep
their hopes alive of a first division 1 RDQL title.

Division 2
There was a thriller at the Royle as the home team just got the better of the Lancashire
Fold Vault 42-40 as the match went down to the last pair of questions. Making his
seasonal debut for the Comrades Steve Pryslak, aka Prizzy, added value to a 4 person
team and with Julia Knight returning from injury it was an excellent team effort as they
defeated Woolworths SSC by 13 points. The division's leading two teams, Norden
Bowling Club and Blue Pits Raiders, both had 20+ points’ victories over the Flyers and
the Dyers respectively with the topics not suiting them at all.

Next week sees the start of the mini league matches with the handicaps in place - Please
remember when the winning or home team send me the score please send the total score
including the starting handicaps!!!

Good Luck - please let me know any thoughts (corrections, humorous incidents,
criticisms, etc.) that will add value to my "Hans Christian Appleton" reporting.
