Ormskirk Quiz League

A member of the Merseyside Quiz Leagues

MIMIR Merseyside

The first two rounds took place last night. All six Ormskirk players finished in the first two places in their heat in Round 1, so qualifying for Round 2, a feat double that of any other League.

Alan Gibbs, Darren Martin and John Wilson have qualified from Round 2 for the semi-finals next Wednesday. Hard luck to Debbie Davidson, Paul Prior and Alan Thompson who played well, but just missed out.

Don Liptrot Trophy

Congratulations to Helenians who won the Trophy 52-42 against Turks Head Sinners who were unable to overcome a 7 point start. Mike Flaherty scored 17 points for Helenians and Bill Gerrard 23 points for Sinners. This is Helenians first win after being runner-up in 1980 and 1994.

Congratulations also to Turks Head Saints who beat a depleted Benchwarmers 61-38 to win the Plate thanks to sizeable contributions from Kevin Walton (17), Mike Critchley and Barbara Flaherty (both 15). This is the team's second win, firstly as Abbey Saints in 2018.

Thanks to the neutral officials who gave up their evening.
