Hounds are quiz knockout champs

HARE and Hounds A are Todmorden Quiz League’s Handicap Knockout champions.

This year’s final was played at the Hare and Hounds, Lane Ends, Old Town, between Hounds A and Polished Knob.

With a varied selection of subjects including Bells, Russia, Classic Motorbikes and Pirates this seemed to suit Hounds who raced ahead in the first half and were 42-17 ahead at halfway.

This lead was too much for Polished Knob to make any headway and Hounds A were eventual winners on 71 with Polished Knob on 44.

This would have been a comprehensive victory even without the handicap. In a play-off for third spot Hounds B beat Shannon 75-68.
