Kieran & Co Burns King Billy
The Octagon A continued their impressive start to life in the Monday Premier with a 7-4 win over the King Billy, in which no less than six maximums were plundered by both sides.
Three went to the victors with Kieran Burns (12xTs), Alfie Ford (11xTs) and Lee Hellings all notching, and there was a brace for Antony Hayman and Mark Yeoman claiming the other.
Lewis Dare (27.33) continued his incredible form winning in 21,16,18 with ten tons to boot, whilst teammate Jayden Dodd (11xTs) also shone.
Two points further back are the Victory B after their 7-4 win over Indian A with Anthony Pearn (10xTs) claiming a brace of ton plus finishes for the Honicknowle side, a 120 and 128, whilst teammates Paddy Archibald, Scott Cook and Paul Goundry all plundered maximums, and Paul Gavican (10xTs) showed his class.
Pearn's efforts however were bettered by Indian's Harry Bull (10xTs) who checked out a fine 132 for the highest of the season so far and Bull's teammate Shaun Dring (12xTs) was prominent throughout.
In third now are the Tradesman's who won 9-2 at neighbour's Octagon B after initially going 7-0 up.
This performance owed much to Andrew Walters (11xTs) form, with Luke Johnson (24.64) smashing in a maximum with teammate Mike O'Brien (25.47) also prominent.
In fourth just five off the top are the Bluebird C after their 8-3 win over their stablemates, the B team with Steve Brocklesby's maximum the highlight in this affair.
The other Bluebird side, Bluebird A, lost by the odd leg in eleven away at the Firkin Scholar in a highly entertaining tie.
There were maximums for Frankie Stout for the home side with Jack McMinn firing back for the Compton team with one of his own.
There was also three finishes of note with an 86 for John Turpin and Shaune Kittle's 100 beaten by Brian Lumsdon with a 102.
The standout individual performance though came from Bluebird's Alan Masters (26.37); winning in 18,21,18.
Paul Freeman (24.24) and Matt Nicholson were both outstanding performers in their Indian B team's 6-5 win over the Victory A; both hitting ten tons.
