B Singles title for Drever

Jamie Drever won the B League Singles in a very close final against Erlend Lennie.
The final went to 3-3 before Jamie took the last 2 legs to take the title he last won in 2013. The competition took place in the Kirkwall Masonic Club on Friday night.

There was little change in the order of the Williamson's Butchers sponsored KDDL 'A' league this week, with 9-3 scores being the order of the day in four of the six matches played.  Winning by this margin were the Commodores, Legion, Orkney Golf Club and Sanday over the Untouchables, Quoyburray 'B', Arrows and Shapinsay respectively.  
The Wanderers let slip a 3-0 lead to lose 8-4 to Untouchables 'A', while the Warriors finally returned to winning ways courtesy of a 10-2 win over Quoyburray.

The top of the 'B' league appears to be finally taking shape now.  Top side Nomads defeated close challengers Vikings 8-4, which allowed Tankerness to move four points clear in second with a 10-2 victory over Ale Stars.  Murray Arms kept themselves in contention with a narrow 7-5 win over close rivals Bilco Boys, a result which was replicated for Streamline over Sands as well as Sanday 'B' over Young Loons.

180s were hit by: Ian Linklater, Robbie Stanger, Leigh Shearer, Stuart Thomson, Stevie Scott, Gary Norquoy, Stevie Moar, Bruce Moar, Gordon Rendall (OGC), Jim Brown, Allan Brown, Jamie Marwick, Colin Leslie, Alan Gray, Gordon Rendall (Sanday 'B'), Patty Sinclair, Steven Low, Erlend Eunson, Jamie Drever, and two each from Trevor Shearer, Erlend Lennie and Robbie Norquoy.

Ton-plus checkouts came from:  Jim Hamilton 100, Raymie Rendall 100, Graham Firth 100, Robbie Stanger 101, Gordon Rendall (OGC) 106, Erlend Lennie 116, Michael Vendy 140, Ben Hogan 143, Roy Foubister 144,  Jamie Drever 119 & 120 and Michael Muir 100 & 167.
