Howard 4 continue to struggle to field a full side and again conceded 3 points, this week to Chatham Dorset. Not that Dorset are complaining as they went on to record only their 3rd victory of the season and the 7 points gained gives themselves a bit of a buffer from the relegation places. Max Day went undefeated on the night to win his first Player of the Match Award of the season, although Howard regular David Scott gave him a fright when he came back from 2 legs down but eventually lost out 12-10 in the decider. This was Scott's only defeat and Howard's 3rd point was gained by Michael Leonard's victory over Zhong Tan Jiao. Leonard,however, lost out to Julian Barker and Day.
