Division 3

The Division 3 championship looks likely to go to St Lawrence Lizards after they pulled out all the stops to beat second-placed Ryde Revellers 7-3.  The Revellers Alan Burch won 2 and John Penny 1, but St Lawrence Lizards Derek Pittard was player of the match as he won all 3 and took his average to 96% for the season.

Ryde Rebels’ 13-year-old Joseph Millward was on form as he won all 3 of his games in their match against experienced Ryde Rockets, whilst twin brother Ethan won 1 game in their 8-2 defeat of the Rockets.
