Sycamore maintained their position at the top of the Premier British League table with a 5-3 win over Fusion.
Paul McCreery was the hero for Sycamore as he recorded victories over Michael O’Driscoll and Lorestas Trumpauskas to go along with the solitary win each from his teammates. Kazeem Adeleke had threatened to put a dent in Sycamore’s title challenge after picking up impressive victories over Chris Doran and Matt Ware, but the pair recovered with wins over O’Driscoll and Matthew Dodds respectively before Kelly Sibley also beat Dodds to earn Sycamore victory.
Urban remain in second position after fighting off Drumchapel Glasgow 5-3. Hungarian duo Peter Musko and Daniel Schaffer produced two victories each, whilst Alim Hirji’s excellent victory over Chris Wheeler pushed Urban over the line. The newly promoted side has been impressive since arriving in the division, and it is hard to question that they will ultimately be Sycamore’s biggest threat to the crown.
Barrow moved up to third in the division with a 6-2 victory over winless Wymondham. The Tornadoes swept aside their struggling opponents, who look increasingly likely to be heading for relegation. Helshan Weerasinghe’s excellent double for Wymondham was sadly in vain as Joanna Drinkhall and Danny Lawrence both picked up two wins each. Drinkhall’s pulsating five game victory over Liam McTiernan was arguably one of the best games of the weekend, with Drinkhall having to dig deep to leave victorious.
Finally, Ormesby won their second consecutive game with an 8-0 whitewash of Greenhouse. The quartet of Ryan Jenkins, Richard Andrews, Michael Marsden and Conor Edwards showed why they remain a forced to be reckoned with despite their slow start to the season. Victory was never in doubt for Ormesby, who cruised past a helpless Greenhouse side that was missing both Po Huang Chen and Jason Sugrue.
