16th March 2017 - Week 19

Week 19 and we really are at the business end of the league with the final break for the Singles Knockout to come next week we will return for the final three games that will decide the final league positions. In the fight for the league title there are three teams still in it and in the individual competitions there are a handful of players with a realistic chance of securing individual glory as we close in on the final weeks of the season...

The Three Ferrets have had an up and down season and they faced the similarly unpredictable Atlantic, it was a close game as the teams swapped frames until the Atlantic managed to take the last three singles to ease into a 5-3 lead. The doubles saw the Atlantic turn on the form as they took all four frames and the win the match 9-3. The British Legion 'A' faced the Pool Club 'A', and it was the Pool 'A' who started the better taking a surprise 4-0 lead but the Legion 'A' fought back to close the gap but still trailled 5-3. The doubles saw the teams share the frames 2-2 giving the Pool 'A' a narrow 7-5 victory and left the Legion 'A' wondering about a very flat performance on the night.

Unquestionably the match of the night saw the second place Pool Club 'B' face the league leading British Legion 'B' and after a good start by the Legion 'B' the Pool 'B' dug in and unsurprisingly the scores were level at 4-4 going into the doubles. The doubles saw the Pool 'B' take the game by the scruff and make their play as they took all four frames to win the match by a very important 8-4 score line and close the gap at the top to 4 points. The Engine Inn welcomed the Golden Lion and found the Lion in good form as they took an early lead which they held onto to lead 7-5 after the singles. The doubles saw the teams share the frames 2-2 and give the Lion a narrow 7-5 victory.

The Gannet Inn who still have an outside chance of winning the league faced the Cornish Arms 'A' and after the singles the Gannet led 6-2 giving their chances a much needed boost. The doubles saw the Gannet turn the screw as they took all four frames to win the match 10-2 and close the gap on the two sides above them.

Performance of the Week - Pool Club 'B'

9th March 2017 - Week 18

Week 18 and after a disappointing last round of league matches when several games were unable to be played and the completion of the second round of the Doubles Knockout, the league got back to business this week. With only five league games remaining things are really warming up nicely with two teams, barring any calamities, now in with a shout of taking the top honours

In a battle of the bottom sides the Badger Inn entertained the Cornish Arms A' and things were very close until the last three games of the singles when the Cornish A' managed to get their noses in front. The doubles again saw the teams keeping things tight as they shared the frames 2-2 giving the Cornish A' a narrow 7-5 victory. The Golden Lion faced the Gannet Inn who up until a few weeks ago was in with a shout at the top, and it was the Gannet that started the better as they took a 4-0 lead. Craig Hosking of the Gannet had an 8 Ball clearance and by the end of the singles the Gannet led 6-2, the doubles saw the Gannet extend their lead until Colin Perkin and Holly McCormack took the last frame for the Lion but the Gannet won the match 9-3.

The British Legion B' welcomed the Engine and knowing that a good win would strengthen their position at the top of the table. After the singles the Legion B' led 8- 0 and only a doubles win by A.Ross and B.Jennings of the Engine stopped a Legion B' whitewash as they comfortably won 11-1. The Pool Club derby saw the Pool A' as the home team but it was the Pool B' who took a 5-0 lead before the Pool A' stopped the rot. At the end of the singles the Pool B' led 6-2 and the doubles saw them take all four frames to win the match 10-2, but unfortunately they still dropped points on the Legion B'.

The Atlantic faced the British Legion A' who have recently rediscovered their form and it was the Legion A' who started the better and by the end of the singles they led 5-3. The doubles saw the Legion A' tighten their grip on the game as they took three out of four frames to win the match by a fairly comfortable 8-4 score line. The Cornish Arms B' welcomed the Three Ferrets and only Edda Probst of the Ferrets could manage a singles win as the Cornish B' took the singles 7-1. The doubles saw the Cornish B' continue their good form as they took three out of four frames to win the match 10-2.

Performance of the Week - Cornish Arms 'A'

16th February 2017 - Week 16

Week 16 and after the exertions of last weeks singles knockouts we return to league action this week and playing for team points instead of individual glory. With only six league games left to play any slip up by the top teams could cost them dearly

The Badger Inn welcomed the Golden Lion to Lelant and started well as the home team took an early 3-0 lead but the Lion then found some form winning the next four frames before it finally ended up 4-4 at the end of the singles. The doubles saw the Badger start well again but this time the Lion failed to find their form as the Badger took all four frames to win the match 8-4. The British Legion B' hosted the Cornish Arms A' knowing a good result would strengthen their position at the top of the table, and it was only Theo Pope of the Cornish A' who managed to stop the clean sweep of singles frames as the Legion B' took a 7-1 lead. The doubles saw the Legion B' take three out of the four frames to win the match 10-2 and keep the pressure on the chasing pack at the top.

The Pool Club A' faced the title chasing Gannet Inn and it was the Pool A' who started the better of the teams before the Gannet settled down and took a 6-2 singles lead. The doubles saw the Pool A' put up a good fight as they shared the frames 2-2 giving the Gannet an 8-4 victory but also saw them dropping points at the top at a crucial point in the season. The Atlantic faced the Engine Inn and it was the away team that started the better before the Atlantic managed to dig in and slowly turn it around to lead 5-3 at the end of the singles. The doubles saw the Atlantic continue their good form as they took the first three frames before the Engine took a consolation last frame, giving the Atlantic an 8-4 win.

The Three Ferrets hosted the British Legion A' and it was the Legion A' who are starting to rediscover their form that took control of the game as they raced to a 7-1 singles lead. The doubles saw the Legion A' return to their bad habits as they lost three of the four frames but they had done the damage in the singles and took the match 8-4. The match between the defending champions the Pool Club B' and the Cornish Arms B' had to be postponed And will be rescheduled in the next few weeks.

Performance of the Week - The Badger Inn

2nd February 2017 - Week 15

Week 15 and with things tightening up nicely at the top of the table a poor result now could spell disaster for your title hopes and rock your confidence. Next week is the start of the Singles Knockouts so a good result is crucial as you go into the break.

The British Legion A' hosted the Badger Inn and after an unfortunate start for the Legion A' they started to turn the screw and they finally took the singes 6-2 with some nice and tidy pool. The doubles saw the Legion A' turn up the pressure as they claimed all four frames to win the match 10-2. The Pool Club B' have closed the gap at the top in recent weeks and they faced the Three Ferrets who found the Pool B' in superb form as they steam rollered the Ferrets with only Candi Cole of the Ferrets taking a frame in an 11-1 victory for the Pool B'.

The Engine Inn faced the very much in form Cornish Arms B' out at Cripplesease and found them still to be in excellent form as the Cornish B' took a 6-2 lead in the singles. The doubles saw the Cornish B' march on taking all four frames to win their third match in a row 10-2 and keep the pressure on at the top. The Gannet Inn faced the neighbours the Atlantic in the Carbis Bay derby needing a good result to keep them in touch with the chasing pack. The Gannet took a 4-0 lead before the Atlantic could register a frame but the Gannet went on to lead 6-2 at the end of the singles, and then took all four doubles frames to win 10-2 which was turning out to be a very popular score line this week.

The Cornish Arms A' welcomed the Pool Club A' to Carbis Bay and found the Pool A' in very good form as they took a 4-0 lead before the Cornish A' managed a frame but the Pool A' continued their good form to lead 6-2. The doubles saw a complete turnaround as the Cornish A' took three out of four frames but alas it wasn't quite enough for the home side as the Pool A' took the match 7-5. The league leaders the British Legion B' took a trip to the Golden Lion and after a slight hiccup to start with managed to ease to a 6-2 singles lead. The doubles saw the Legion B' continue their good form as they took three out of four frames to win the match 9-3, but over the last couple of weeks their big advantage at the top has been gradually eroded by the chasing pack.

Performance of the Week - Cornish Arms 'B'

26th January 2017 - Week 14

Week 14 and after a break for the first round of the doubles we are back to the business of the League, and with things closing up at the top after some strange results it's all to play for again.

The Badger Inn faced the league leading British Legion B' and things started well for the Legion B' as they raced to a 7-1 lead with only Sandow Penberthy of the Badger taking the last singles frame to save the singles whitewash for the Badger. The doubles saw much of the same as the Legion B' took three out of the four frames to win the match 10-2. The Pool Club A' welcomed the Golden Lion and after dropping the first frame the Pool A' took the next five frames and by the end of the singles they led 6-2. The doubles saw the Lion again take the first frame but the Pool A' took the remaining three to win the match 9-3.

The Atlantic welcomed the Cornish Arms A' and after a hard fought match the Atlantic managed to stretch out a lead, which they held onto to win the match 8-4. Arguably the match of the week saw the Cornish Arms B' face the Gannet Inn and it didn't disappoint, the Gannet found the Cornish B' too hot as they raced to 5-0 lead but then Brian Ashwin of the Gannet stopped the rot. At 5-1 the Cornish B' captain Jeremy Gaylard made an 8 Ball clearance and the Cornish B' marched on, taking three out of four doubles frames to win the match 10-2 and crush the Gannet Inn.

The Three Ferrets faced the Engine Inn and both teams swapped singles frames but it was the Engine who made the break through as they finished with a narrow 5-3 lead. The doubles saw the teams share the frames finally giving the Engine a narrow 7-5 victory. The British Legion A' faced the defending champions the Pool Club B' their bogey team and as per usual things never changed as the Pool B' took a 7-1 lead with only Jack Rae of the Legion A' showing any resistance. The doubles again saw the Pool B' taking three out of four frames again with only Jack and James Rae taking a frame as the Pool B' cruised to a 10-2 victory.

Performance of the Week - Cornish Arms 'B'

12th January 2017 - Week 13

Week 13 the first week after the Christmas break and the league is back with a bang, we also have the first rounds of the knockout competitions coming up as well as the long run in for the league title.

Defending champions the Pool Club B' are hard chasing the British Legion B' at the top of the table and a home game against the Badger Inn would be a chance for the Pool B' to close the gap. Things didn't start as expected as Charlie Seguin of the Badger started the match with an 8 Ball clearance, but it was to be a short lived advantage as the Pool B' got to work and finished the singles 6-2 up. The doubles saw the Pool B' continue their ruthless streak by taking all four of the doubles frames to win the match 10-2 and apply pressure at the top. The Engine Inn welcomed the British Legion A' who now seemed to have got over their recent poor form but it was close to start with as the teams shared frames but the Legion A' eased away to lead 6-2. The doubles saw the Legion A' continue their improved doubles form as they took the first three frames to win the match 9-3.

Due to sad circumstances at the Ferrets the game against the Gannet Inn was postponed as a mark of respect and will be replayed at a future date. The Cornish Arms derby saw the Cornish A' as the home side but alas it didn't help as the Cornish B' took the singles 7-1 with only Matty Jones of the Cornish A' taking a singles frame. The doubles saw pretty much the same pattern as the Cornish B' took three out of four frames to win the match 10-2.

The Golden Lion faced the Atlantic and it was the home side that started the better of the two but the Atlantic managed to turn things around and took a narrow 5-3 advantage into the singles. The doubles again saw the teams scrapping for the frames and it was captain Richard Thompson and Steve Eddy of the Atlantic that took the last frame to win the match by 7-5. The British Legion B' faced the Pool Club A' and were hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table, but things really didn't start to well for the Legion B' as Alex Whomersley of the Pool A' started with an 8 Ball clearance. After that the Pool A' took a surprise 3-0 lead before the Legion B' took a frame but it was the Pool A' that pushed on and by the end of the singles they had a surprise 6-2 lead. The doubles saw the Pool A' continue their good form as they took the first frame of doubles before the Legion B' finally found their form taking the last three frames, but it was too little too late for the Legion B' as the Pool A' had taken a deserved 7-5 victory.

Perormance of the Week - Pool Club 'A'

15th December 2016 - Week 12

Week 12 and the last game before the Christmas break and with the British Legion B' only needing four points to secure the Christmas number one this year it would take a massive shock to stop them. Week 12 is also the turn around point and the teams start the reverse fixtures and the long run in to the seasons end, add in the knockout competitions and it's going to be a busy second half of the season

The Badger Inn welcomed the Pool Club A' to lelant and found them in excellent form as they raced to a 4-0 lead but then the Badger suddenly realised they were in a game and took the last four frames to level at 4-4. The doubles saw the Pool A' again take the first two frames to lead 6-4 before the Badger took the next but then up stepped Lee Tacagni of the Pool A' who took the last frame with an 8 Ball clearance and the match for the Pool A' 7-5. The Atlantic were the team charged with trying to stop the British Legion B' and unfortunately they fell short as the Legion B' took the singles 7-1 with only Martin Lucas of the Atlantic taking a singles frame. The doubles again saw much of the same as the Legion B' took three out of four frames to win the match 10-2 and secure this years Christmas Number One !

The Cornish Arms B' welcomed the Golden Lion and found that the Lion were their old unpredictable selves as the teams swapped frames all the way through the singles which ended up 4-4. The doubles saw the Cornish B' finally get a grip of the match as they took three out of four frames to scrape the match 7-5. The Three Ferrets faced the Cornish Arms A' and set about building a handy 6-2 lead during the singles , but the doubles saw the Cornish A' turn things on their head as they took all four frames to draw the match 6-6.

The British Legion A' faced the Gannet Inn and when Jeff Lines took the first frame to lead 1-0 there was hope of a good display but this was to be the last frame the Legion A' would win as they produced another woeful display. The Legion A' have now failed to win a doubles frame since game week 8 and it would have been a performance of the week display by the Gannet if the opposition had been better as they hardly got out of first gear to win 11-1. The Pool Club B' hosted the Engine Inn and did what they have done for the last few years as League Champions by taking the singles 7-1 with only Brian Jennings of the Engine putting up any resistance. The doubles saw the Pool B' Juggernaut continue it's journey onwards as they took all four doubles frames to win the match 11-1.

Performance of the Week - Pool Club 'B'

1st December 2016 - Week 10

Week 10 and with only three games to go until Christmas the chances of closing the gap at the top and becoming the Christmas number 1 are fading. But the British Legion 'B' have had to postpone this weeks match until Tuesday the 6th so a chance for the chasing teams to apply some pressure before they play....

The Badger welcomed the Atlantic to Lelant and in a game between two teams that have struggled for consistency this season anything could happen, the singles saw the teams sharing frames and ending 4-4. The doubles again saw the teams share the frames 2-2 making the final match score 6-6. The Pool Club 'A' hosted the Cornish Arms 'B' who are clinging to the top three and hoping for a good result to keep them in with a chance. The Pool 'A' took the first frame but from then onwards the Cornish 'B' showed no mercy as they took the remaining seven singles frames to lead 7-1 before they made it eight taking the first doubles. The Pool 'A' then seemed to find some form and set about taking the final three frames to give the Cornish 'B' an 8-4 victory.

The British Legion 'A' took a trip down into town to visit the Golden Lion and soon got to work taking the first two singles before Holly McCormack grabbed a frame with a nice clearance. The Legion 'A' then continued to win frames and by the end of the singles led 6-2, but the doubles turned into a disaster for the Legion 'A' as they snatched a draw from the jaws of victory as they completely collapsed in a pitiful display of doubles play that the Lion took full advantage of pulling the final score back to 6-6. The Cornish Arms 'A' welcomed the defending League Champions the Pool Club 'B' and found them in a mood for closing gaps as they Pool 'B' raced to a 4-0 lead. By the end of the singles though the Cornish 'A' had managed to take a couple of frames but once again the Pool 'B' turned the screw taking three out of four doubles frames to win the match 9-3.

The Gannet Inn looking to close the gap at the top welcomed the Engine Inn and after losing the first frame got to work winning singles frames ending up with a 6-2 lead before playing the doubles. The Gannet took up where they left of in the doubles winning the first three frames but Richard Goldsmith and Brian Jennings took the last for the Engine giving the Gannet a 9-3 victory.

Performance of the Week - Golden Lion

24th November 2016 - Week 9

Week 9 and with three games to play before the Christmas Number 1 can anyone stop the runaway league leaders the British Legion B', the task fell to the British Legion A' this week as the Legion derby took place

The Gannet who suffered their first defeat of the season last week were looking to bounce back with a home game against the Badger Inn, and bounce back was an under statement as they romped to a 12-0 victory. The Gannet certainly back to winning ways after their hiccup last week and firmly back in the race at the top of the table. The Engine Inn faced the conquerors of the Gannet Inn from the week before the Cornish Arms A', reports are a bit sketchy due to the time delay between St Ives and Cripplesease but it appears the Engine managed to record a good 8-4 home win.

The defending champions the Pool Club B' are finding it hard to close the gap between them and the Legion B' so a home game against the misfiring Golden Lion should have been a chance to gain some points. The Pool B' again found it hard to take advantage as they stumbled through the singles and it was the Lion who were happiest with a 4-4 score line. The doubles though saw the Pool B' finally find their form as they took all four frames and the match 8-4, a slightly disappointing result for the title chasing Pool Club B'. So to the Legion derby with the Legion A' being the home team it was the Legion B' who started the better, but after eight frames of good pool, bad pool, moaning and groaning and some shocking refereeing the teams were level at 4-4. It was the doubles that proved to be decisive as the Legion B' took control, with some help by poor play on behalf of the Legion A', they took all four frames to win the match 8-4.

The Three Ferrets hosted the Pool Club A' with both teams having had some very good results so far this season it was any ones game, but it was the Pool A' who had the better of the singles taking a narrow 5-3 lead. The doubles saw the Pool A' take the first frame but the Ferrets dug deep and took the next two before Ferrets captain Stuart Kennerley and partner Tony Lewis took the last frame to draw the match level at 6-6. The Cornish Arms B' faced the Atlantic and with both teams having a dip in form over the last few weeks it was a good chance for the teams to get back on track with a win. It was the Cornish B' who took their chances in the singles as they took a 6-2 lead going into the doubles. The doubles saw the Cornish B' extend their lead by taking three out of four frames to win the match 9-3.

Performance of the Week - Gannet Inn

17th November 2016 - Week 8

Week 8 and the race for the Christmas number one is starting to heat up, with only four more matches to play before the big day can anyone catch the British Legion B'? This week sees the League Champions the Pool Club B' visiting the British Legion B' in a clash of the Titans at the top of the League

The in form Badger Inn welcomed the out of form Cornish Arms B' to Lelant and of course it was the out of form Cornish B' that took the initiative after a minor hiccup to lead 7-1 at the end of the singles. The doubles saw the Badger get to grips with the Cornish B' as the teams shared the frames to give the Cornish B' a 9-3 victory after their impressive singles display. The Atlantic hosted this years surprise package the Three Ferrets who seem to fear no one this season, but neither team could find the spark to take a singles lead as they shared the frames 4-4. The doubles saw the Ferrets make an early breakthrough before the Atlantic dug deep and took the last three frames and the match 7-5.

The Pool Club A' met the British Legion A' at the Pool Club and it was the Legion A' who made the early running going 2-0 up before the Pool A' pulled things back and after some close frames the teams were level at 4-4. The doubles saw the Legion A' take a lead and when Dave Venn slotted the last black ball the Legion A' had sneaked the match 7-5. The league leading British Legion B' against the defending champions the Pool Club B' a match to make your mouth water, a chance for the Legion B' to increase their lead or the Pool B' to close the gap. It was the Legion B' who took up the early running as they went 3-0 up before the Pool B' registered their first score but by the end of the singles the Legion B' had control of the match as they led 6-2. The doubles saw some close games and in some cases some extreme thought which culminated in the teams sharing the frames 2-2, giving the Legion B' a huge 8-4 victory and with other scores on the night going their way a big 10 point lead at the top of the table.

In a bottom of the table clash the Golden Lion hosted an under strength Engine Inn and the Lion took full advantage taking a 6-2 singles lead. The doubles again saw the Lion press home their advantage taking three more frames to win the match 9-3. The second bottom Cornish Arms A' who haven't won a match this season welcomed the seven straight wins Gannet Inn in a match that should have been a forgone conclusion for the Gannet. But the Gannet found themselves trailing 2-0 before they pulled back level and then the Cornish A' won the next three frames giving themselves a 5-3 lead after the singles. The doubles saw the Cornish A' continue their phenomenal form as they took the first two frames before the Gannet limited the damage taking the last two frames including an 8 Ball Clearance by Brian Ashwin, but the Cornish A' had already won the game 7-5.

Performance of the Week - Cornish Arms 'A'

10th November 2016 - Week 7

Week 7 and we are rapidly racing towards the halfway point in the season due to there only being twelve teams this season meaning time is already getting tight for the teams chasing the teams at the top. The individual competitions still have three unbeaten singles players and four unbeaten doubles players as we go into week 7, but no player has a 100% record in both

The Gannet Inn are the only unbeaten team in the league with six straight wins and they welcomed the Golden Lion to Carbis Bay, after four frames the teams were level at 2-2. The Gannet then found their usual form and took the last four singles frames to lead 6-2 going into the doubles but the Lion proved to be awkward opponents as the teams shared the frames 2-2 giving the Gannet an 8-4 victory. The Cornish Arms A' welcomed the in form Badger Inn who after a slow start to the season have found their feet in recent weeks, and after a slow start it was the Badger that took control as the ended the singles leading 5-3. The doubles were tighter as the teams shared the frames giving the Badger a 7-5 victory and their third successive win.

The Engine Inn hosted the league leading British Legion B' out at Cripplesease and it was the Legion B' who started better, continuing their good form they took a 6-2 singles lead. After a slight hiccup at the start of the doubles the Legion B' took three out of the four frames to win the match 9-3 and grind out another good win to keep the pressure on at the top. The Pool Club derby saw the Pool B' as the home team and they took the early initiative leading 4-0 before the Pool A' stop the rot, but by the end of the singles the Pool B' led 6-2. The doubles saw the Pool B' take the first three frames before the Pool A' took a consolation last frame making the score 9-3 to the Pool B'.

The British Legion A' under new captain JC Theodore welcomed the Atlantic to the Legion and the new captain got a positive response as his team took a 5-0 lead, which they turned into 6-2 going into the doubles. The doubles saw the Legion A' again start well taking the first three frames before the Atlantic took the last to make the score 9-3 to the Legion A' and a winning start for the new captain. The Three Ferrets seem to have taken it upon themselves this season to be the team to cause a surprise or two and the Cornish Arms B' was the latest team to find out. The singles saw the Ferrets take a 5-3 lead after some tight games but then the Cornish B' took the first two doubles frames before the Ferrets came roaring back taking the last two frames to sneak the win 7-5.

Performance of the Week - Gannet Inn

3rd November 2016 - Week 6

Week 6 and the league has now settled down into its usual rhythm with teams gently making their way into place and the usual suspect rearing their heads. The individual competitions are up and running with three unbeaten singles players and four unbeaten doubles players but no one has an unbeaten overall record

The Badger had a tough start to the season and a visit from the Three Ferrets was again another tough ask, but the Badger have found some form in recent weeks and they took to their task and after the singles led 5-3. It was the doubles though that saw the Badger really turn it on as they took all four frames to win the match by a convincing 9-3 score line. Two of the longest established teams faced each other at the Cornish Arms as the Cornish Arms B' welcomed the British Legion A', the two teams locked horns with the Legion A' just sneaking a 5-3 lead after winning the last two singles frames. The doubles saw the Cornish B' digging deep taking the first three frames to lead 6-5 before the Legion A' took the last to level the match at 6-6.

The Atlantic welcomed the defending League Champions the Pool Club B' and found them in good form as the Pool B' took a 6-2 singles lead. The doubles again saw the Pool B' get into their rhythm taking three out of four frames to take the match with a convincing 9-3 victory. The Pool Club A' hosted the Engine Inn in a battle of the lower teams and it was the Pool A' who started the better taking a 5-3 singles lead. The doubles saw the Pool A' stretch their lead as they took the first three frames before the Engine took a consolation last frame making it an 8-4 Pool A' victory.

After the last three weeks the British Legion B' faced a considerably harder task as they welcomed the Gannet Inn, with the teams trading frames all the way through the singles it finally ended up at 4-4. The doubles saw the Gannet digging deepest as they took the first three frames before the Legion B' took the last frame making the final score 7-5 to the Gannet, the first loss of the season for the Legion B' and making the Gannet the only unbeaten side this season. In a real bottom of the table clash the Golden Lion faced the Cornish Arms A' and with both teams winning regular frames the singles ended 4-4. It was the doubles that saw the Lion come alive as they took all four frames including a last frame 8 Ball clearance by Tim Brett giving them an 8-4 win.

Performance of the Week - Gannet Inn

27th October 2016 - Week 5

Week 5 and it's the British Legion B' who are making the early running this season as they keep turning in big scores and stretching their lead at the top, can anyone put a stop to their early season form.

The Badger who have had a tough start to the season took a trip to play the Golden Lion who have had their best start to the season for a few years so on form the Lion were looking good. The Badger obviously hadn't checked the form this week as they stormed to a 7-0 singles lead before Tim Brett of the Lion managed to stop the rot. The doubles saw the Badger start well but the Lion found some of their form and managed to take the last three doubles frames to give the Badger a surprise 8-4 victory. The British Legion B' are on a run of form that the Cornish Arms A' were going to find difficult to stop and predictably they didn't stop it as the Legion B' juggernaut steamrollered them 12-0. That makes it thirty five wins out of the last thirty six frames as they have won their last three matches 12-0, 11-1,12-0, a league record, with only Paul Beadnell of the Golden Lion stopping them achieving a 100% record.

The Gannet are one of the teams chasing the Legion B' and they welcomed the Pool Club A' to Carbis Bay and found the Pool A' up for the fight as they took an early 2-0 lead. The Gannet dug in and pulled things back and finally finished the singles leading 5-3, the doubles again saw the Pool A' start well before the Gannet again took control and increased their lead to win the match 8-4. The Engine welcomed the Atlantic to Cripplesease and found the Atlantic in good form, after a slow start the Atlantic managed to take the singles 5-3. The doubles saw the Atlantic get into their stride as they cruised through the frames taking all four frames to win the match 9-3.

Last years Champions the Pool Club B' were looking to bounce back after their shock defeat to the Ferrets last week but a game against the Cornish Arms B' wasn't the game they would choose. The Pool B' put their troubles behind them as they took a 4-0 lead which they turned into a 6-2 singles lead, the doubles saw the teams share the frames 2-2 giving the Pool B' an 8-4 victory. The British Legion A' welcomed the Three Ferrets and found them still in good form from their previous weeks match, the Ferrets took a 3-1 lead before the Legion A' dug deep and managed to pull back to a level 4-4 at the end of the singles. The doubles saw the Legion A' take a 6-5 lead needing the last frame to secure the win but a slice of bad luck as they potted the back and white giving the frame to the Ferrets made the match a 6-6 draw

Performance of theWeek - British Legion 'B'

20th October 2016 - Week 4

Week 4 and things are starting to take shape nicely now but this league still throws up some shock results with players playing single frames anything can happen, it can be a great leveller

The British Legion A' travelled out to Lelant to face the Badger Inn the week after they were whitewashed by the Legion B' and after the Legion A' took seven out of the eight singles frames the Badger must have been sick of the sight of Legion players. Only Badger captain Matthew Norris managed to register a win for the Badger and the doubles saw the Legion A' continue with there good form as they took all the frames to win the match 11-1. The Three Ferrets faced the reigning Champions the Pool Club B' and decided they weren't going to show them any respect as they took a 4-1 lead, the Pool B' had to dig deep to bring it back to 4-4 at the end of the singles. The doubles saw the Ferrets turn up the heat and by the end of the doubles they had taken three out of four frames to inflict a very surprising defeat on the Pool B'!

The Cornish Arms B' faced the Engine Inn and after a laboured start to the season by the Cornish B' they found themselves taking a 7-1 lead after the singles. The doubles saw the Cornish B' continue their good form as they took three out of four frames to win the match by a comfortable 10-2 score line. The local derby between neighbours the Atlantic and Gannet Inn again saw another team win the singles 7-1 this time it was the Gannet. The doubles saw the Atlantic find a little form as they battled their way to sharing the frames 2-2 giving the Gannet a good 9-3 victory.

The Pool Club A' and the Cornish Arms A' faced each other at the Pool Club and in a game of two evenly match teams it was the Pool A' who took a slight advantage after the singles leading by 5-3. The doubles saw the Cornish A' fight back as they took three out of the four frames to level the match at 6-6. The British Legion B' are the team bang in form at the moment and they faced a Golden Lion side that have had a good start to the season. It was the Legion B' who continued their early season form as only Lion captain Paul Beadnell could win a frame as the Legion B' raced to a 7-1 lead before they continued on into the doubles taking all four frames to win the match 11-1. That's 23 out of the last 24 points for the Legion B' who are on fire at the beginning of this season, Can they continue this form? Only time will tell but their next opponents the Cornish Arms A' must surely be a bit concerned!

Performance of the Week - Three Ferrets

13th October 2016 - Week 3

Week 3 and things are slowly taking shape in the League with the usual suspects starting to appear at the two ends of the table, but there's a long way to go and plenty of time for teams to make an impact

The British Legion B' hosted the Badger Inn and found the Badger in a giving mood, in fact they were that giving they let the Legion B' take all eight singles frames. The doubles saw the Badger continue their benevolent mood as they failed to win a single doubles frame giving the Legion B' the first 12-0 victory this season. The Golden Lion found themselves in a strange position as they welcomed the Pool Club A', they were in the position of trying to win their third game in a row something that they haven't managed in recent years. It was a close game with the Lion managing to shade the singles 5-3 before going onto share the doubles frames indeed giving them their third 7-5 win in a row.

The Atlantic took the short trip to the Cornish Arms 'A' and found them to be in a very generous mood indeed, in fact they were that generous that the Atlantic won seven out of eight singles frames. The doubles saw much of the same as the Atlantic extended their lead by taking three out of four frames to win the match 10-2.The Gannet Inn welcomed the Cornish Arms B' to their new surroundings and both teams got stuck into a close battle in the singles with both teams leading at one time or another before they settled on a 4-4 draw. The doubles saw the Gannet finally ease into the lead after the Cornish B' took the first frame the Gannet managed to claim the remaining three frames to take the match 7-5.

The Three Ferrets took a trip out to Cripplesease to play the Engine Inn and in a close game the teams found themselves level at 4-4 after the singles with the Engine making the early running and the Ferrets fighting back. The doubles again saw the frames being shared with the Ferrets taking the lead before the Engine pulled it back to a 6-6 draw. The defending Champions the Pool Club B' hosted the British Legion A' and in some very close games the Pool B' found themselves leading 5-3 after the singles. The doubles though saw the Pool B' finally get a grip on the game as they took all four doubles frames to end up comfortable 9-3 winners.

The doubles saw the Engine put up more resistance as the teams shared the frames to give the Legion A' an 8-4 victory.

The 3 Ferrets hosted the Gannet Inn and found last years runners up (playing as the Howards B') in good form as the Gannet raced to a 7-1 singles lead,. The doubles saw the Ferrets dig in and find a little form as they managed to share the frames 2-2 giving the Gannet Inn a 9-3 win.

By the end of the singles the Cornish B' had dug deep and levelled at 4-4, the doubles couldn't split the sides as they shared the frames leaving the final score a 6-6 draw.

The Atlantic welcomed last weeks surprise package the Golden Lion and found them in equally as good form as the two teams fought out the singles frames you could split them as the finished level at 4-4. The doubles saw the Lion find their good early season form as they took three out of four frames to win their second match of the season 7-5. The Pool Club A' played host to the British Legion B' and in a closer than it should have been singles exchange the Legion B' ran out 5-3 leaders.
