6-Man League: Bad week for top teams

Veterans 6-Man League


It was a bad week for the table-topping teams in Sections A and B as both lost 1-6 but both managed to hang on to the lead in their sections - just! Section A leaders Shepley are in a bit of a sticky patch as this was their second defeat in their last 3 matches and has brought them right back in the sights of reigning Champions Netherton Con with just a one-point difference. Brockholes 'A' inflicted the defeat on the leaders with the pair's scoreline of 21-7 proving decisive in the 97-83 aggregate score. A 5-2 home win for Netherton Con over third-placed Thongsbridge 'B' pushed them closer to the summit and hit

Thongsbridge's hopes of mounting a serious challenge for the title. A surprising 6-1 away win for Oakfield T&BC, their first of the season, took them off the foot of the table and out of the relegation places altogether. That result sent the humbled Lindley Lib side into the drop zone along with Longwood who suffered a 1-6 reversal at Milnsbridge. Paddock eased their own relegation worries with a 6-1 home win over Crosland Moor which now puts them top of the mini table of four relegation-threatened teams only separated by 5 points.


The second table-topping team to suffer defeat this week was Honley Con who went down 1-6 at their main rivals for the Section B title Golcar C&BC. Six of the top eight bowlers in the Section B Singles averages come from these two teams but the leader of that table, Mick Chapman, is no longer available for the 6-man team having passed the magic number of 14 appearances for New Mill in Section 2 of the 10-Man League. That match result puts both teams on 47 points with the 'Aggregate For' total separating the two leaders. Seven points behind them comes Skel Windmill 'B' who had to rely on a better aggregate total to claim the 4-3 win at relegation-threatened Golcar Lib.


In Section C we are still waiting for the Almondbury Lib result at the time of writing this review and the leaders Slaithwaite were having the week off which enabled Holmfirth 'A' to creep 6 points closer after a win at Shepley 'B'. Hemplow and Marsh Lib also had away wins but the top teams now look well spaced out with head-to-head meetings now required to start to change some of these positions.
