First Division

Anglers Rest 7 Red Star 1

The Anglers have hit form at just the right time and unbelievably find themselves a point clear at the top of the division despite being five points behind just before Christmas.

It was, as the score line suggests, a very one sided match and the home side were never in danger.

Kevin Smyth was the only bright star in an otherwise dull performance from the visitors and now their whole season hangs on being in two cup quarter finals.

Mulhollands 5

Market Bar 3

This Dromore derby match went the way of the home side but only just as they found themselves level going into the doubles matches.

S Wilson, A Bingham and P Winters all won their individual matches and N Hodgen, S Holland and M Cairns were all on point for the Market.

Mulhollands took both doubles to secure a victory.

Railway 4 Bus Bar 4

The Railway lost ground on the leaders and now find themselves four points off top spot.

It started so well for the home side as Carl Jones and Gary Murphy gave them a 2 - 0 lead.

Even when J Lyttle pulled one back for the Bus, the home side looked in control as Damien Paxton restored a two frame advantage.

The visitors then levelled the match as J MIlligan and D Milligan won the next two games. The doubles were shared.

Ballymore Inn 8 O’Reillys B 0

Cullens 4

Ballymore Inn 4

A double header for the Ballymore saw them slip one point behind the Anglers but still all to play for.

The Tandragee side still have the destination of the league title in their own hands.

The O’Reillys match had nothing too exciting in it but the derby match was much closer and the Ballymore thought they definitely should have won it as they were 4 - 2 up going into the doubles.

Tom Bell keeps himself top of the potters league with yet another win.
