Legion move clear at the top

The Legion moved two points clear at the top of the Williamsons 'A' League after a 9-3 win over RBLM. That's because their nearest challengers, The Commodores dropped two points as Sanday held them to a 6 all draw and it looks like the Golf Club have dropped out of the running as they crashed 8-4 to the Wanderers and are now 8 points behind the leaders. The Untouchables had a good 9-3 win over the Legion Arrows and still no win for the Nomads as they went down 10-2 to the Untouchables 'A'. 

No result in from the Sands 2 v St Ola game or for two of the 'B' games namely Shapinsay v Warriors and Muppets v Tankerness. 12 o' clock on Saturday is the deadline for cards to be in to the Legion Club.

Elsewhere there was the first whitewash of the season for the Williamsons 'B' League as Quoyburray B beat the Vikings 12 nil. Shapinsay did beat the Bilco Boys 8-4 and there was a 7-5 win for Quoyburray over the Bilco Boys.

180s from Ivan Leslie, Neil Croy, Wayne Monkman, Colin Barnett, Clive Hewison, Erlend Lennie, Kenny Gillespie, Graham Firth, Brian Moar, Stevie Linklater, Stuart Thomson, James Flett, Graham Reid, two from Ian Findaly, Billy Ward and Kevin Gray. 

High checkouts of a 100 from Ivan Leslie, Freddie Tait 102 Andrew Moar 101 Ian Eunson105 & 106 Matthew Wylie 113 Ewan Rendall 117 James Flett 120 Graham Reid and Kenny Gillespie131 Michael Moodie 148 Brian Moar 108 and 155 Simon Parry.

It's a big night on Friday for all the players hoping to make it to Shetland. The League Doubles held in the Legion is the second last ranking point event, and at least 8 players outside the top five could still make it with the right results.

Then it's on to the really big one, the Kirkwall Open with over £1,000 on offer. It's Saturday March , 5 in the Masonic. Names by 1.30pm. There's special prizes for Ladies and 'B' registered players with the KDDL. There's also a big raffle with good prizes on offer.
