Joy for Weavers as they notch first quiz win

THERE was joy in the Weavers camp after their first win of the Todmorden Quiz League season away at Royal George.

The result got the Blind Lane team off the mark against their fellow league debutants, who already have some wins under their belt.

Hounds A showed a resurgance of form in beating Bird@Queen.

Cornholme’s workmen seem to have lost their early season form and never got going at home against Todmorden CC whose impressive total was the night’s highest.

At Woodpecker the home team nudged ahead in the early rounds and although Bridge End grabbed a few comeback points it was not enough and Pecker were easy winners.

Jacks House came close to rocking the Polished Knob’s bid for top league honours but ended up losers by a single point.

Hounds B’s progress, which keeps them at the top of the league, continued at home against Shannon.

Results: Royal George 37, Weavers 54; Bird@Queen 56, Hare and Hounds A 68; Cornholme WMC 38, Todmorden CC 87; Woodpecker 69, Bridge End 52; Jack’s House 71, Polished Knob 72; Hare and Hounds B 74, Shannon 49.

Fixtures for March 2: Hare and Hounds A v Weavers Arms; Royal George v Todmorden CC; Bird@Queen v Bridge End WMC; Cornholme WMC v Polished Knob; Woodepcker v Shannon; Jack’s House v Hare and Hounds B.
