Cops too good for Kangaroos
Police Sports Club continued their pool dominance in the round-robin stage of the Mount Gay Silver 9 ball team competition on Sunday, defeating Kangaroos Pool by 6 games to 5.
Kangaroos must have thought they had it in the bag when they put their super-sub Rodney Ragu Moore to play the tie-breaking game. Needing this game to have a better chance to qualify for the super 4, Kangaroos had heartbreak when policeman David Davis made light work of Moore to win the set by three games to one.
Having also lost by eight games to three to Eastern Sports Club the day before, Kangaroos will now have to rely on a mathematical miracle to qualify for the next round. In stark contrast to Kangaroos, Technicians Sports Club have fought their way back to an almost certain spot. Starting the season with three straight losses, they have won their last four games, including a devastating nine games to one trouncing of The Saints on Saturday and then a thrilling eight games to three victory on Sunday over Defenders Pool Club.
Defenders are one of the best teams in the league boasting no fewer than seven national team invitees. Technicians would have to lose badly tomorrow against Crazy 8’s Sports Club not to once again qualify for the Super 4. In other games, Defenders hunted down the Q-Bandits and beat them by 7 – 4 and The Stars totally out-shone and then institutionalised Crazy 8’s 8 – 3.
Technicians will be hoping they can do the same tomorrow when they play Crazy 8’s at Nelson’s Arms 2 whilst Kangaroos will look to redeem themselves against Defenders at Boom’s Bar. Stars will hope to shine again against the Q-Bandits at Casablanca.
Regardless of the outcomes, all the teams will head to Police Sports Club where there will be a Mount Gay Silver promotion after the game between Police Sports Club and The Saints.
