Woodpecker are quiz champions

WOODPECKER are Todmorden Quiz League champions for 2011-2012.

The Shade side cannot be caught after Jack’s House’s defeat at Queen Hotel last Wednesday night, their three-point lead securing them the title regardless of what happened in last night’s final round of league matches.

At Cornholme Waggon their match was closely contested up until the later rounds when Woodpecker pulled away to win and secure their title.

Queen’s narrow win halted the challenge for top of the league spot by Jack’s House.

Bridge End logged the night’s highest score in beating Weavers by a massive margin. A disastrous Link round by Todmorden CC put them too far behind to fight back in their defeat at the hands of Polished Knob, for whom a last night win would clinch the runners-up spot.

Hare and Hounds A maintained late season good form in defeating Shannon. It was a similar situation for Hare and Hounds B who won at Royal George.

Next week (April 11), sees some teams contesting the first round of the Handicap Knockout competition.

Results: Bridge End 77, Weavers 48; Todmorden CC 63, Polished Knob 68; Hare and Hounds A 59, Shannon 54; Royal George 54, Hare and Hounds B 68; Queen Hotel 62, Jack’s House 59; Cornholme Waggon 53, Woodpecker 66.
