Highlights Catchup Week

 The Monday quiz proved very unpopular and produced two very low scoring games; Squigglers narrowly beat Rugby Hounds and Old Dog had a more comfortable win over Newburgh Lions.  On Tuesday, using a much more accessible quiz, Aughton Institute beat Benchwarmers; two players registered an impressive 22 points - Gordon Richards for Aughton and Rob Green for Benchwarmers.

Colly Wobblers and Unison both won their final games in the round robin part of the Merseyside Challenge Cup to qualify for the quarter finals. Mike Unsworth scored 20 points for Colly Wobblers as they beat the strong Zetland team from Southport & Formby. Darren Martin also scored 20 points for Unison against Exiles from Liverpool.
