A split opening mixed set was followed by Andy & Maxine Watson winning both games in set 6 to go 5-7 ahead. Then in the 7th set, Andy Wiseman & Sian won both games to square the match again. In the 8th, Chris Foote & Michelle Skinner won a pair 0-15 & 15-17 to take the visitors into a 7-9 lead and set up a tense final set. In the final set, Dave Wiseman & Cath Bagley held their nerve and won both games to draw the match and share the points. The best players on the night were Sian for Carlton & Andy from Hawks; both won 6. David Lloyd beat bottom team, MGS B 15-3 to boost themselves into mid table with the 4 points. Cross Feathers had a crunch match against St. Andrews A and managed to take all 4 points in the 15-3 result. Statistically, the best player on the night was Fay Andrews and now Cross Feathers close the gap to just 2 pts with 2 matches in hand.
