Royle come out on top in the "battle of the bowlers"

Division 1 - Bay Horse Bandits continued their impressive form with an 11 point win
over Spotland Club but there was a definite return to form from the Lancashire Fold
who, probably suited by the topics, proved that they can blow their own trumpet as the
thrashed an off tune Whitworth Band Club by 20 points. Healey Hotel brushed aside
Woodside Club and eased to victory by 13 points. The closest match was at the Cemetery
where the Blue Pits Rovers had yet another nail biting match as the quiz went down to
the wire as it ended 50-47 to the Castleton outfit. With only three points separating the
top four teams there will be a few sweaty palms and squeaky bums as a lot of the teams
play each other over the next few weeks.

Division 2 - It was the "battle of the bowlers" in Norden as they faced Royle Bowling
Club. Royle came out top as they quickly found their line and length and beat the
Norden team by 10 points to inflict only their second league defeat of the season. Blue
Pits Raiders and Lancashire Fold Vault both had relatively comfortable wins against The
Flyers and Comrades Club respectively. Still looking like a two team race to the title


It was a case of revenge is both sweet and profitable as Cemetery Yoyos, Spotland Club,
Woodside Club and Norden Bowling Club all won their gallons after losing the main
quiz. It is still looking like a Blue Pits gallon double as the Rovers and the Raiders head
both divisions - it will take a few failures on their part and some exceptional results from
the challengers to stop it!

Next week sees the 4th round of the mini league matches with a themed quiz and an
interesting gallon!
