Cornholme take quiz knockout crown

A STRONG last round from Cornholme Club saw them beat Bridge End to become Todmorden Quiz League Handicap Knockout winners for 2010-11.

It gave them a convincing win right at the end of a match that had been nip and tuck up until that point.

Held at Bridge End, Bridge End started with a handicap of 13 and Cornholme 12, and early rounds saw Bridge End pull a few points ahead but Cornholme nipped them back to level it at 39 points each at half time.

Either side could have taken it in the second half and it was 68-66 in Cornholme’s favour going into the last round.

However, the last round was a disaster for the home team who lost it, 14-2 giving Cornholme the title.

Handicap Knockout final: Bridge End 68, Cornholme WMC 82.

Next Wednesday, June 8, the league hosts its Charity Shield quiz and presentation night at Todmorden Cricket Club, from 8.30pm - all players welcome to attend, and charity quiz proceeds go to a good cause.
