The un­beaten Rene­gades were given a good run for their money by the Awanui 8-Ballers at Awanui Ho­tel last Tues­day, which proved one of the talk­ing points from week 9 of the Far North Pool As­so­ci­a­tion’s 2019 cham­pi­onship.

Lo­cal com­men­ta­tor Sharp­shooter noted it was all square at the turn in this match — i.e. af­ter the sin­gles games were com­pleted — while the first game of dou­bles was won by the lo­cals to sug­gest an up­set was on the cards be­fore the Rene­gades fi­nally es­tab­lished con­trol to emerge 7-5 win­ners.

Else­where, the Houhora Mar­lins drew with Waipap Gold at Waipap af­ter lead­ing 5-3 at the turn. Gold then pro­ceeded to win three on the trot, which set up the last dou­bles game for a cliffhange­r, which was even­tu­ally won by Mar­lins’ Len Crewther and Rose Leef.

Other re­sults saw the Ra­zor­backs lose at home to the Col­lards Str8 Up crew by 7-5 af­ter scores were level at the turn, re­garded over­all as a “fair re­sult” with both teams sit­ting on 52 points on the ta­ble; the Vault Bar emerg­ing 7-5 vic­tors at home over Awaz Tigers One (5-3 af­ter the sin­gles); the RSA Rangers en­joy­ing a win at home over the KA Rebels 9-3 (6-2 sin­gles) with Peter Pitch­ford a stand­out af­ter winning his first sin­gles match of the sea­son for the Rangers; and the Titans bounc­ing back from the pre­vi­ous week’s loss by thrash­ing Awaz Tigers Two 10-2 (6-2).

STAND­INGS: Titans 75 points, Rene­gades 69, Rangers 62, Vault Bar 54, Tigers One 54, Mar­lins 53, Str8 Up 52, Ra­zor­backs 52, Awanui 8 Ball 50, Rebels 47, Waipap Gold 41, Tigers Two 39.

Tonight’s draw with * in­di­cat­ing likely win­ners, is, Vault Bar* vs Herekino Ra­zor­backs, Awaz Tigers 1* vs Waipap Gold, Awanui Titans* vs Awanui 8 Ball, Col­lards Str8 Up* vs Houhora Mar­lins, Awaz Tigers 2 vs RSA Rangers*, KA Rebels vs Rene­gades*.
