Ryan Swann (42) lost to Sean McDonald (-7)
Carl Donkin (14) won against Karl Le Fevre (-21)
Paul Destro (28) drew with Steve Thomas (0)
Robbie Kilpatrick was in a hurry in beating Gary Boschat 2-0.
By the time St Brelades Sean McDonald turned up at 7:15 to play second, their two frames were already finished. McDonald was giving away 49 points per frame against Ryan Swann and needed 9 snookers in the first frame with one red left on the table. A combination of fouls from snookers and free balls saw McDonald win a frame on the pink that looked incredibly unlikely. The second frame was just as tight with McDonald nicking it on the black.
Karl Le Fevre was unlucky to lose his first frame against Carl Donkin but Donkin took the second easily to put Services 4-2 up.
Steve Thomas was on last against Paul Destro. Thomas played well to take the first frame closing the gap to one frame but Paul Destro also played well in the last frame of the night to win the match for Services to inflict the westerners first defeat but remain top.
Services move to equal second, one point off the lead.

Sam Duncan (42) drew with Aaron Canavan (-63) in the first Aaron made a 45 and 22 and was unfortunate on several occasions, he went in off the last red to leave Sam with an easy pot, it looked as if Aaron was going to clear the last four colours but when potting brown into the middle bag the white went up and down the table at high speed and into the green pocket, still needing the last two colours to win, he played a safety shot on the pink only to see it hit the jaw of the middle bag and go towards the green bag for Sam to clinch the frame. The second saw Aaron making a 54 and 24 to win on the pink.
