South Sink the Sharks

Article excerpt

Byline: STEVE BURGE

THE first division's only game saw Northfield South consolidate their third place in their first season with an 8-2 victory over Sharks.

Martin Rutter, Carl White and Adam Smith are a powerful team and Sharks' only wins were from their doubles team and Linsley beating White.

Division two saw teams from the top half play teams at the bottom and each match provided few upsets.

The most emphatic victory was Billingham Press beating Veterans 10-0. The game was not as one sided as the scoreline suggests as many games went to five ends. However the Press team were too strong on the night.

There were also wins for Pingers over Patriots, Lions over Kingbro B and Harlepool Westbourne over Hillprint Media. This last match did see Andy Greason beating Nicky Skipp which is never an easy feat.

In Division three, the top two teams won easily with Kingbro C beating Pongers 8-2 and Mighty Ducks having a 10-0 victory over Kingbro D. The other match resulted in the Nippers winning 8-2 against the Dynamos with Eleanor Davison achieving a hat trick of wins.
