St Aubin Warriors 5-3 Tower Beans
Robert Le Moel (35) drew with John Mahoney (35) Robert made hard work of winning the first frame when it looked likely to be a comfortable win, when Robert failed to pot an easy last red, John clawed his way back and was unfortunate when potting the blue that he snookered himself on the pink, after giving a couple of fouls Robert potted the pink to take the frame. John made up for it to take the second comfortably.
Aaron Canavan (-63) drew with Andy Richardson (-7) both players winning their respective frame on the black. Aaron won the first with a 23 and a really good 22 clearance. The second Aaron made a 44 and when on 36 looked likely to take the frame when with just the colours remaining only needed yellow and green for Andy to require a snooker but got a bad kick when potting the yellow and snookered himself on the green, although he got out of it Andy went on to pot green to pink and just failed the black, Aaron also missed his attempt and Andy made no mistake on his second chance.
Rene Turmel (42) drew with Aubrey Rive (14) both winning their respective frame on the pink.
Byron Le Cornu (42) won against Stephen Rive (35) Byron won the first potting a good black but was a comfortable winner in the second thanks to a bad run of unfortunate fouls from Stephen
