Leaders falter at quiz title rivals’ hands

TODMORDEN Quiz League leaders Woodpecker could not repeat a last gasp victory of the type they have pulled off in recent times as they were defeated by title challengers Polished Knob.

Weavers score was a good one on the night but not quite enough to beat Hare and Hounds B. At Shannon Jack’s House thought they had it in the bag going into the last round 11 points ahead but a storming comeback by the home team nearly turned the tables but they lost by a single point.

Bridge End posted the highest score of the night in their demolition of Cornholme Waggon. At Centre Vale the Cricketers were ahead at halfway and although Queen came back in the later rounds they just lost out by the narrowest of margins.

Hare and Hounds A inflicted a convincing win margin on unfortunate Royal George.
