    BOWLING ALLEY BANDITS 10 (Kingsley Ang 2; Anita Lynton 2; Jean Lavictoire 2) DEFEATED BARKLY STR8 SHOOTERS 7 (James Hay 2; Justin Holman 2)

    Barkly Str8 Shooters took their patchy form to Bowling Alley Bandits, who are the surprise packets of the year so far.

    Many were predicting Bandits to win with a landslide display, however, Str8 Shooters came to play.

    It didn’t look good for the Barkly side early being behind 3-1.

    Good wins to Samm Carpenter and Justin Holman showed a return to form for both Str8 Shooters and when James Hay took his seventh singles match, to remain unbeaten on the year, the scores were level.

    Bandits have had one-frame decisions all year but while the tightness of the day may have favoured them, Str8 Shooters had victory on their minds.

    Holman and Hay took two more to edge ahead 5-3 but Jean Lavictoire and Anita Lynton, who were both impressive on the day for Bandits, once again tied proceedings at 5-all.

    Heading into doubles, and similar to all three opening matches for Bandits, scores were 6-all.

    It was the visitors who showed their composure first to take the opening two doubles.

    They, of course, lost their final frame so the record would show, yet another, one-frame win.

    But the positive news was Str8 Shooters had a very good chance to knock off one of the front-runners.

    Holman’s team now travel to the Overlander to take on the last-placed Overlander New Stars in a match that might see their season turn around.

    While Bandits will have their hands full with the undefeated Buffalo Bills at home, in what looks to be another close call.

    IRISH CLUB 303S 14 (Jye Graham 2; Jordan Pickering 2; Shaye Graham 2; John Tuimauga 1; Jason Graham 1) DEFEATED CLUB DEMONS 3

    Irish Club 303s had a down week in the last round but still managed to get the better of Bandits by a frame.

    In a stunning return to form, 303s went to work against a hapless Club Demons side.

    Before Wes Purcell took the first frame for Demons, 303s were ahead 8-nil, and eventually won 14-3.

    While all 303s played exceptionally, Jordan Pickering, Shaye Graham, and Jye Graham were the standouts.

    They have a more difficult assignment next week against Bowling Alley CPR, who has snuck under the radar to claim second spot on the table.

    BOWLING ALLEY CPR 14 (James Cartledge 2; Don Cameron 2; Lester Armstrong 2; Lee Marshall 2) DEFEATED BARKLY MISCUES 3 (Chase Steffensen 2)

    In a very lopsided round 4, Bowling Alley CPR took another large score away from a lesser team, this time Barkly Miscues.

    Despite Chase Steffensen’s best efforts for Miscues, CPR was just too good.

    Lee Marshall and James Cartledge for CPR kept their averages up again taking two singles frames while Don Cameron and Lester Armstrong also played well for the visitors.

    BUFFS JMI 13 (James Ghee 2; Alan Wehrman 2; Anthony Behen 2) DEFEATED OVERLANDER NEW STARS 4 (Scott Megarrity 1)

    Buffs JMI look the real deal in 2015 as they snared another big total against Overlander New Stars, who find themselves in last spot by virtue of the first-round bye.

    JMI proved last round’s loss to Buffalo Bills may have been a minor hitch as they went to town on the New Stars.

    Anthony Behen may have confirmed himself as the best newcomer in the competition after four rounds again after playing aggressively in his two wins while teammates Alan Wehrman and James Ghee also starred.

    New Stars competed well but didn’t have enough in the tank to challenge for the win.

    New Stars will still have hope of rebounding next week when they come up against some old teammates in Barkly Str8 Shooters.

    IRISH CLUB OUTLAWS 14 (Mick Lehtonen 2; Troy Anderson 2; Russell Holdsworth 1) DEFEATED CLUB HUSTLERS 3 (Leanne Aria 1)

    After two wins and a bye for the season, Club Hustlers got wrecked with a quick dose of reality as they failed to compete with first-placed Irish Club Outlaws.

    Too many errors late in frames cost Hustlers but nothing could be taken away from Outlaws who were clinical in closing frames.

    Outlaws got out to a 7-1 lead, then lost two quick frames, but stayed composed to close out the day. Outlaws showed the rest of the league they are the front-runners for the trophy, however, they could relinquish first place with their bye in round 5.

    Whereas Hustlers will look to return to form in the local derby with Club Demons.
