No com­pas­sion from All Hearts

The Northland Age - - Sport -

The Col­lards Str8 Up team were whipped 8-4 on home turf by Waipap Gold in week 9/ 22 of the Far North Pool As­so­ci­a­tion 2018 cham­pi­onship last Tues­day evening.

Lo­cal com­men­ta­tor Sharp­shooter noted it hadn’t been of­ten this sea­son that any­one had seen Waipap Gold lead 6-2 at the turn (ie. af­ter the sin­gles games were played).

Sharp­shooter went on to note Col­lards All Hearts showed no heart in tun­ing up their Back In Black sta­ble­mates 9-3 (5-3) on the ad­ja­cent ta­ble, this af­ter trail­ing 3-1 be­fore win­ning eight games in a row.

Else­where, the Mar­lins were on the re­ceiv­ing end of a 9-3 (6-2) thrash­ing from a more-in-tune Rene­gades re­cov­er­ing from last week’s stut­ter, a draw; All Day vs Awaz Tigers Two ended up a stale­mate af­ter the Tigers led 5-3 be­fore blow­ing too many chances on the night; sev­eral of the Awaz Tigers One team were MIA in the 10-2 loss to the Boarhunters; Ti­tans and Rebels played out some tight tus­sles at Awanui with the even­tual 8-4 win to the pre­miers not really show­ing how close some of the matches were; while Awanui 8 Ball beat Ra­zor­backs 8-4 (6-2) af­ter get­ting off to a flyer by win­ning the first four games.

LAD­DER: Ti­tans 74 points, Rene­gades 70, Awanui 8 Ball 65, Rebels 60, Mar­lins 60, All Hearts 55, All Day 55, Tigers Two 52, Str8 Up 50, Ra­zor­backs 47, Tigers One 45, Waipap Gold 43, Boarhunters 42, Back In Black 38.
