A great performance by the Snipers to beat Boothys Ravens 10-0 and put them in prime position for the Division 2 title with just 1 game to play.
Snipers are 9 points above the Angels and 15 points above Hucknall 50+ ( but Hucknall have a game in hand ).
Snipers need 6 points next week to win the title, may be even less depending on Thursday's game of Hucknall vs River Maun.
Jim Westwood was in great form and although his team mates Tony Swain & Ben Swain also won all their games and combined in a doubles win, Jim deserved the POM, with straight set wins over Stan Zygadlo and Chris Tilstone, but mainly the match again Phil Parkin which had all the spectators on their feet, both Jim & Phil played some fantastic Table Tennis, none more so than in the 4th set, which Jim won 12-10 to take the match, but fair play to both players great spectacle.
Closest match of the night and the only 1 that went the distance was between Ben & Stan, Ben took a 2-0 lead then Stan hit back to level the match at 2-2, Ben managed to just compose himself and get over the line with an 11-9 victory in the final set.
Angels kept on the pressure for promotion, and although being 9 points behind with only 1 game to go the title seems to have slipped them, they can still get 2nd Place and Promotion.
Angels are 6 points above Hucknall, and Hucknall have a tricky tie on Thursday vs River Maun which is their game in hand, and it could come down to their last matches on who comes 2nd.
Angels dominated the night winning 10-0 and 9 of the games were comfortable 3-0 victories, the only match on the night which could have gone Spin Doctors way, was Glyn Payne vs Adrian Smith, they shared the first 4 sets to go into a 5th set decider, however Adrian made sure and won the decider 11-2.
Haydn Scothern playing only his 3rd match of the campaign won his 3rd POM award, and dropped only 34 points in 9 sets.
Hucknall 50+ kept alive their chance at the title or at least promotion with a 7-3 victory over River Maun.
Hucknall are 8 points behind the leaders and will hope River Maun can beat the Snipers convincingly to stand a chance of the title, but they are now 1 point ahead of Angels in 3rd, they both have just 1 game left so who will come second and the second promotion spot is wide open.
Andy King won his 6th POM and maintains a 96.97% win ratio, Roy Drew won 2 and John Banner 1 as well as a doubles win for Hucknall. Mark Sansom won 2 for River Maun and Michael Matushenko 1.
It was however a close affair with 5 of the 10 games going to a 5th and final set, with 3 of these being won by Hucknall. so the result could have easily swung the other way.
Jacksdale D beat Ravenshead Rebels 6-4 to move to 5th and leave the Rebels at the bottom.
John Smith won his first POM award this season being the only unbeaten player on the night, Hari Rampall won 2 and Angela Brettell 1 for Jacksdale, all 3 Rebels players all won 1 with a doubles victory also.
Match of the night was Hari vs Val Tully with Val just winning the 5th set decider 14-12, Hari then got over the disappointment of this loss with a 5th set decider victory over MIke Cohen winning 11-9.

2. Hucknall 50+ 13 88
