In the Williamson’s ‘A’ League, the Untouchables took advantage of the Legion not having a game to move to within six points of the top team with an easy 8-4 win over the Golf Club.
The only other team in with a shout are the Wanderers with a 9-3 defeat of Sanday who, after a great start, have faded as the season nears the end of the first half.
Meadowbank and Untouchables ‘A’ shared the points in a six-all draw and both are well off the leaders.
Quoyburray ‘B’ have still to win a game, after going down 9-3 to the Commodores.
The Williamson’s ‘B’ League has reached the half-way mark, but there’s still three games to play, and team captains are reminded that these games must be played before the Festive Singles or they will be classed as void and no points or scores recorded.
But, on the games that were played, and RBLM are totally clear after their fourth 12-nil whitewash, and it was the Likely Lads who had to suffer.
Their nearest challengers are the Murray Arms, after a good 9-3 win over Bilco Boys, and they still have a game to play.
The Sands, in third spot, lost ground as Deerness held them to a 6-6 draw.
Shapinsay stayed in touch, with an 8-4 defeat of Tankerness and they also have a game to play.
There was no score once again from the Shore.
There were lots of 180s, with 28 being scored from Ian Linklater and Keith Bain in a 14-leg game, Roy Griffiths, Brian Murray, Craig Moar, Michael Kemp, Aaron Mitchell, Martin Peace, Des Gillespie, Colin Barnett, Michael Montgomery, Billy Ward, Derek Firth, Stevie Linklater, and two from Trevor Shearer, Kevin Gray, Michael Moodie, Craig Taylor, three from Brian Stevenson and Ivan Leslie.
