ENTER THE LEAGUE REPUBLIC SITE
Matches played 7 March 2018
After the previous weeks near wipe out, the league, like the traffic, got moving again. However, some of the top teams may have gone off the boil as three of the top four divisional leaders lost. The Premiership top team, Players Lounge No.1, who at times have looked invincible, went down to a 3-2 defeat against Park Club, who have been fighting to avoid relegation most of the season. The win pulls Park up to third from bottom, although it still looks likely to be a close run race.
In A division leaders Alpine No.2 fared even worse losing 4-1 to Shiregreen WMC who are placed next to last place. However, Alpine still hold a comfortable seven point lead over Laycocks Sports, who did not have a match this week leaving them with a game in hand.
Firth Park WMC were the exception in B division, and how. They took a maximum five points off their opponents, Players Lounge No.4, to extend their lead at the top over Allied No.3, who lost 3-2 at Steelers No.8, to four points.
The top placed team in C division, Allied Snooker Club No.1 also slipped to a surprise defeat, 4-1 at home to Manpower. Second placed Steelers No.2 did pull a point up on Allied losing 3-2 to Spot On No.1 but it has left them with another five points to catch and they have a game less to play.
The leaders of the lower divisions made no such mistakes. In D division top placed Colley WMC won 4-1 at Earl Old Boys, although second placed Club Baize did keep pace with them, winning by the same score at Back Club 88 to remain seven points adrift of Colley.
The top two teams in E division went head to head from a level base. It was Stocksbridge Legionnaires who came out on top with a 4-1 win over Steelers No.6 to go those three points in front of them.
Spot On No.2ís 4-1 win over Crookes SC put them within a hairís breadth of taking the F division title. They are now 20 points ahead of second placed Sheffield Deaf, who won 3-2 at Hillsborough Club, with just four matches to go.
The top break of the week came from former multiple Sheffield Champion, David Allender, who just failed to make his second league century, knocking in a 99 for Spot On No.1 in their 3-2 win at Steelers mentioned above. Other good breaks were made by John Trickett with 51, Richard Hill 49 and Will Lemons and David Wilkinson both with 39.
