Bistro KO Quarter-Finals
The Quarter-Finals of the Veterans League Bistro competition were played yesterday and progressing through to the semi-finals are three Section 1 teams and Section 2 leaders Kirkheaton Con 'A'. The Cons progressed but were pushed all the way by Section 3 high-flyers Holmfirth 'A' who claimed the game count 3-2 but it is the aggregate that counts in this 5-Pairs competition and that went 108-101 in Kirkheaton's favour who are the only team in two KO competition semi-finals this year.
Section 2 outfit Shepley also gave Section 1 side Waterloo a torrid afternoon as, despite losing the game count 1-4, only lost out by 4-points on the aggregate. A more straightforward outcome for Cowcliffe as they saw off the 24-handicap of Section 4 side Almondbury BC 'B' after seeing off their opponents 'A' side in the previous round.
The all-Section 1 tie between second in the table Golcar Lib 'A' and fifth-placed Marsh United 'A' was a bit of a non-event with Marsh winning all five games and a 48 point overall win.
The Semi-Final draw is below with the two neutral greens still to be allocated for the matches to be played on Thursday 26 August.
