James Bradbury played well for Cramlington Tigers as they visited Mount A but neither of his teammates Gareth Pearson and Rob Reed could support him as they lost 8-2. Phil Prady got his hat-trick and Player of the Match, Dave Pringle and Rod Roberts both winning two each.
At the end of the first day, Northumberland found themselves top of the table by a single point.
The draw for the semi-finals has already taken place and will see Byker B hosting Ouston B and Mount visiting Newton B, potentially leading to two very high quality semi-finals.
As things stand, Northumberland are sitting in second place just one point behind Cheshire who they will play on the next weekend when all of the teams meet again.
Adam Webster was once again the standout performer of the evening successfully defending both his Junior and Cadet titles, and retaining the Norman Moore Memorial Cup and the Harry Dignan Cup.
In division one another top of the table clash did not take place as Newton A postponed the match against the Mount B due to illness of players. Only 3 points separate the teams and the rearranged fixture will almost certainly decide who will win this division.
