Highlights Week 15

Division 1 :- In the top of the table clash, Unison emerged victorious by a single point and hence assume top position on points difference; in a game where all eight players registered double figure scores, John Wilson (17) was Greyhound’s highest scorer and Darren Martin (15) was Unison’s. Janet Crompton’s 23 points was a major factor in Squiggler’s win over Robin Hood for whom Tom Evans scored17; and so after going winless for 11 games, Squigglers have won three of the last four. Ormskirk Tennis Club won by the narrowest of margins over Newburgh Lions; Paul Prior scoring 17 for the Tennis Club and Jim Maloney also scoring 17 for Newburgh. Helenians lost to  Abbey Saints, thanks to Kevin Walton and Barbara Flaherty who both scored 15 for the Saints. Despite 19 points from Debbie Davidson Whippet lost to Colly Wobblers; Pat Gibson (16) and Mike Unsworth (19) led the scoring for the winners.

Division 2 :- Rugby Hounds regained top spot on points difference after a thumping win over a three man Legion Lions; Eric Lupton scored an impressive 23 points for Rugby Hounds. A remarkable 27 points and full house from Bill Gerrard helped Abbey Sinners to a comfortable win over Benchwarmers. Gang of Four beat Ormskirk Theatre Company thanks to 14 points from Rob Jones while Alan Thompson contributed 13 to the Theatre Company’s score. In the other game Ormskirk Farmers beat Aughton Institute.
