Quiz League : Quiz Notes
By Tom Farley
Week ending 27th September 2014
This weeks Monday questions were tough and the Tuesday questions
even more so, with each set producing an upset. On Monday, good scoring
from John Richards 12 and Ian Jackson 10 of Devonshire Club proved
too strong for Casablanca in winning 39 - 31, Chris Sumner 11 leading
for the visitors. Fishermens Rest handled the Tuesday questions
marginally better than Formby Sports to come out on top 25 - 24 led
by Phil Lally 11. E Street Band managed only two 2 pointers at Wings
in going down 42 - 19 with Tom Farley 16 and Dag Griffiths 15 leading
for the home side.
scoring from Frank Gracie 14, Nick Aindow 13 and Margaret Copplestone
10 led Formby Pabvilion to a comfortable 40 - 26 victory over Exams
with Nick Philpott 11 leading for the visitors. Led by Geoff Wilde
16 and John Hill 13, Southport FC continued their promotion form with
a solid 40 - 27 victory at MPs. A fine 18 from John Hoyle led St Jeromes
to a 35 - 25 victory over Ex - Pats with Kath Jackson 10 leading for
the visitors. Ainsdale Sands didnt like the Tuesday questions
at all going down 32 - 13 at Quads, probably making their lowest -
ever score. Tony Duffey 11 and Adrian Cannell 10 led for Quads.
