Week 10 Highlights

Division 1.  Comfortable wins for the top two with Pat Gibson answering all his own questions top scoring with 19 points for Old Dog against Farmers Arms and Peter Duffy with 18 for Unison against Greyhound. Eric Lupton also scored 18 for Rugby Hounds who were victorious over Ormskirk Tennis Club and Dave Boyd with 17 for Helenians in a good win against Gang of Four.
Division 2.  Newburgh Lions kept their unbeaten run going with a one point win over Whippet on a rather unsatisfactory Tuesday set; Robin McIntosh top scoring with 19 points for the Lions.   Comfortable wins for Abbey Saints over Aughton Institute and Abbey Sinners against Benchwarmers keeps them in second and third positions. A second win for Ormskirk Farmers moves them away from the bottom and they still have several postponed games to play.
