Central League secure a narrow seven-pin advantage in first leg

PUBLISHED: 12:46 17 October 2018 | UPDATED: 12:46 17 October 2018

The Weston Central Skittles League took a narrow seven-pin victory in the first leg of the Ron Day Cup against the District League.

The first leg of the Ron Day Cup was played at the George & Dragon and thanks go to the club for the use of the alley and refreshments provided and resulted in a win for the Central League by seven pins.

The District League got off to a flyer in the first set winning by 15 pins with Dave Jones getting 57 and not far behind was Pete Blackwell with 55. Top score for the Central was James Lane with 48.

The second set went to the Central by one pin with Neil Wilcox hitting 54 and they also hit three spares to the District’s one in this set. Topscorer for the District was Ian Gregory with 49.

The third set also went to the Central by eight pins, but mention goes to Dan Owen playing his first game at inter-league level hitting 55 in this front pin first event.

The fourth set also belonged to the Central, meaning they won three of the four sets on the night. Dean Hazell hit a 17 spare on his fourth hand to go on to record a total score of 52.

Nobody in the District team could respond to this, so the Central take seven pins over to the return sometime in November when they decide on a alley.

Weston & District (Dave Jones 57) 517, Central League (Neil Wilcox 54) 524.
