Woodpecker lose, but quiz title is theirs

At Woodpecker the scores were level until the last two rounds but Queen just edged a victory in the Todmorden Quiz League.

Even with this defeat Woodpecker were crowned as League Champions. Polished Knob settled for runners-up spot with the night’s highest score in defeating Bridge End.

Weavers finished the season with a flourish with an impressive total against Cornholme Waggon. At Jack’s House a low scoring match possibly reflected both teams being short of players, Jack’s only with two, Royal George three, and George just did enough to win.

Hare and Hounds A lost the last derby match against their B team but turned the tables with a win in the return match. A disappointing season for Shannon ended with defeat at the hands of Tod’s Cricketers.

Results: Weavers 80, Cornholme Waggon 58; Woodpecker 68, Queen 71; Jack’s House 47, Royal George 53; Hare and Hounds B 62, Hare and Hounds A 74; Shannon 58, Todmorden CC 73; Polished Knob 82, Bridge End 69
