Bird comeback earns a point

A LATE comeback saw Bird at the Queen gain a point at home to Woodpecker in the Todmorden Quiz League.

It was down to the last question which Pecker could only pass - a correct answer would have won.

The match at Cornholme was enjoyed by both teams although Weavers were well beaten. At Royal George Jack’s House won and logged the highest score of the night.

In the derby match at Hare and Hounds the A team came close to beating the B team but had to accept defeat - though only by two points.

At the Cricket Club, Shannon got off badly. They recovered to level but tailed off in the later rounds.

At Bridge End, Polished Knob held back the hosts’ league progress in an overall high scoring match.
