Last Thursday Simon & Oil’s game was against Wet Dreams, and what with Simon & Oils coming close to victory in several games this season, but not quite managing to cut the mark, most people were rooting for them to finally pick up a win.

They started off strongly winning all their singles and doubles games. However, Wet Dreams managed to pick up some points in the beerleg and brought the final score to 7-4. Well done Simon & Oils!

Meanwhile, at the top of the table, Natalie Bar extended their lead to 13 points after claiming a good 7-4 win over then 2nd placed was Ting Tong Bar, who it has to be said have had some pretty erratic results in recent weeks. However, they are never a team to be underestimated.

Khun Oh played a perfect game for Natalie Bar winning both his singles and doubles game, but owner Natalie contributed nothing to the evening except the very tasty food she always prepares on league night.

It was an intense competition, which was reflected in the beerleg because the winner was not decided until final game.

But Natalie managed to keep their nerve and walked away with the win.

Elsewhere, Hole in One Bar replaced Ting Tong at 2nd in the league table after clinching a 4-7 away win over Martin Swiss.

Again it was a very close match with the final score not being decided until the beerleg.

Martin Swiss took the first leg but Hole in One fought back and took the 4-7 win.

However, it should be mentioned that Paul from Martin Swiss won his singles and doubles game along with Bob who plays for Hole in One.

Last Thursday it was Red Light’s turn to take on Caddy Shack with both bar owners taking on each other.

Justin of Caddy Shack managed to 7-ball Gwen of Red Light but this was the only highlight for Caddy Shack as Red Light won convincingly with the final score being 8-3.

Long-term tourists Thierry and Andy, and Khun Tum from Red Light had a good evening also winning both their singles and doubles games.

Last but by no means least, Happy End were taking on Wombat in what is always a close match.

After the singles games the score was balanced at 3-3 but Wombat won all the doubles. Happy End then won the beerleg but Wombat Bar still walked away with a 5-6 win.

The next round of the PPL will be played this Thursday (Mar 15) with spectators welcome to go and show their support.
