Sturdee 3 will have a 17 point lead at the top of Div 2 at the half way stage following their 10th consecutive win, this time at Blue Bell Hill Village Hall, home of Boxley 2. They were made to fight all the way for the 6-4 score. The home side went 3-0 down but the first game of the evening between the 2 Mikes (Sheppard for Boxley and Porter for Sturdee) could have gone either way with Porter eventually winning 12-10 in the 5th after a great fightback from 2 legs down, That proved to be Porter's only win as Barry Roles beat him in 3 and Lyndon Gurr in 5 after looking out of it after the first 2 legs but staged an unexpected and impressive comeback. Roles also beat Peter Stokes in 5 for Boxley's 3rd point and then teamed up with Gurr to take the doubles over Stokes and hatrick man Neil Tydeman . This was Man of the Match Tydeman's 6th treble of the season.
