Div 2 bottom side, Howard 6, must enjoy playing Chatham Dorset as both their victories this season have been against the Chatham team. The 6-4 scoreline was a repeat from the 1st half of the season with Andrew Marchant earning a hatrick as he did when the sides met previously. He was supported by Dad Phil who beat Gareth Dewdney and Zhong Jiao Tan and they teamed up in the doubles to get the crucial 6th point. Phil Humphries was Dorset's best player on the night winning twice. Howard's Michael Leonard was unlucky not to pick up a win losing twice in the 5th.
