IN Divi­sion One, both of the quizzes this week were con­sid­ered very player - friendly, re­sult­ing in high scores in both di­vi­sions.

High­est ag­gre­gate was in E Street Band’s derby with Zet­land who won the last round 7-4 to fin­ish 53-50 ahead with Harry Owen 19, Dick Davies 12 and Mark Hal­ton and Derek Ainsworth, both 11, scor­ing well and Alan Wright 18, Ge­off Hedley 13 and Dave Nick­eas 10 lead­ing for the home side.

Fish­er­men’s Rest’s game with Dis­mounted saw the lat­ter make a strong come­back to lead after seven rounds but lost the last round 6-4 fin­ish 41-40 down with Steve Mur­phy 18, Alan As­cott 11 and Phil Lally 10 scor­ing well for the Fish and Steve Wat­son 14, Frank Hansen 12 and Mike Wil­liams 11 lead­ing the re­ply.

Good scor­ing from Dave Ley­land 20, John Richards 12 and Brian Cum­mins 11 led Devon­shire Club to a com­fort­able 52-31 vic­tory over Shift­ing Sands with Jack Gard­ner 12 lead­ing for the vis­i­tors. All of Wings’ play­ers were again in dou­ble fig­ures in their 58-43 de­feat of Casablanca led by Keith Mul­hearn 19, in­clud­ing a full house, Dag Grif­fiths 17 and Mau­rice Wright and Tom Far­ley, both 11, with Dave Dut­ton 14, Chris Sum­ner 12 and Bill Thomas 11 lead­ing for the home side.

In Divi­sion Two, both Ex­ams and Mixed Blues main­tained their 100 per cent records to re­main at the top. St Jeromes be­gan well at Ex­ams but were fi­nally over­hauled to fin­ish 42-40 down with Nick Philpott 16 and Jim Quigley 14 lead­ing for the home side and Sue Ford 13 and Mike Beck­ing­ham 11 for the vis­i­tors. Mixed Blues put in an­other strong per­for­mance to win
