Week of upsets in snooker league

Leaders Old Skool defeated

It was to be a week of upsets in week 10 of the Macs Builders Merchants snooker league.

St Olaves 'Old Skool' were beaten 3-2 by Port St Mary Legion - Phil Joynes starred with a break of 30 for the southerners as they took a 3-1 lead, but John Kennish made a 41 in the final frame against Terry Boyle to reduce the deficit.

Despite losing, 'Old Skool' actually extended their lead at the top of the table.

Second-placed local rivals St Olaves 'New Skool' could only manage a single frame against Douglas Snooker Club 'Hurricanes'.

James Kerr grabbed the consolation with a 21 break to beat Chris Murphy by two points, but the home side dominated with breaks of 25 and 22 for Chris Dagnall and Paul Smith en route to a 4-1 win - this sees them climb to third in the table.

Finch Hill 'Mob' sit fourth after a 3-2 win against Finch Hill 'Rockets'.

Peter Kirkham hit breaks of 31 and 22 to set the tone against John Spellman, and Tom Miller beat Dollin Mercer despite trailing 51-0 at one point.

Darryl Hill won for the 'Rockets', including a break of 52, and played like a man with a point to prove after his disappointment in the Champion of Champions final.

There was also a break of 27 for Steve Finnegan of the 'Mob', but it wasn't enough to overcome veteran Ronnie 'the Rocket' Grogan.

Elsewhere, Zain Abideen also made a break of 27 as Douglas Snooker Club 'Bandits' beat Malew 2 at home.

Peel Legion sit fifth after a 4-1 victory of their own against Finch Hill 'Musicians'.

And Douglas Snooker Club 'Wannabes' had a successful trip to Ballasalla, where they beat Malew 1 3-2.
