Happy End Sports Bar was playing away at Kiki Sports Bar. Happy End was severely handicapped as Teacher Tak was on a honeymoon in Udon Thani. Jack, playing for Kiki Sports Bar, 7-balled Dave from Happy End and Kiki won 7-4.
Simon & Oil were playing away at Genius and were on cruise control. Simon, Bruce and Brett all playing for Simon & Oil won their singles and doubles games but the home team fought back and won the beer leg. Final score was 5-6 for Simon & Oil.
Natalie bar, only missing Andrew B.D., was playing at home against Ting Tong. Napoli, Oh and Max all playing for Natalie won their singles and doubles games. Although Nick, playing for Ting Tong, did the same. Natalie strong from start to finish won 8-3.
Martin Swiss was playing at home with a full team against Caddy Shack. Surprisingly Martin was in the lead 5-4 before the beer leg. However Caddy Shack showed why they are previous league champions and current leaders by coming back to win 5-6.
The best result of the day was from Champs Bar playing at home against Kwan Birdie. Champs Bar, new to the PPL league, clearly needed some time to adjust whilst Kwan Birdie keeps strengthening their team with top players from around the island and are favourites to win the league this season. A white wash was not out of the question. However Champs player Ryan won his single, double and a leg of the beer leg. Kwan Birdie eventually won 4-8 but Champs can be proud of their performance.
