Newry Pool League Blog week 8



Division 1 of the Newry and District Pool League is probably the tightest Division in the history of Newry pool with incredibly only 2 points separating the top 8 teams.
3 teams are joint top on 9 points. 4 teams behind that on 8 points and Foresters A on 7 points.
Bottom club Glen Social Club are still only 5 points off top spot. Putting that into perspective Orchard Bar are 3rd in the Premier Division and are 6 points behind the leaders. McSwiggans are 4th in Division 2 and are 5 points behind the leaders.

Every time a team looks like they might get a run going they get pegged back.
Ballyholland look like they could be the team to stretch the pack. They had an indifferent start to the season but after a 7-1 demolition job away to CWC B  and the week before when they beat fellow title contenders St. Monnina on their own South Armagh table, they are now looking ominously good.
Gerard McAvoy and Jim McMahon both won for the 3rd week in a row.
David McAvoy, Jim McMahon, Niall McQuillan, Gerard McAvoy and Giby Vittenkial blast Ballyholland to the finish line 5-0.
Brendan Keenan lost to CWC B captain Barry Kelland for 5-1 but Colm Shields and Manny Kelly rounded off a stunning 7-1 win for Ballyholland.

St. Monnina bounced back from last week's defeat when they travelled the long coastal route to Bar No 7 Warrenpoint.
The Saints have a lot of former Killeavy players and a few less experienced players so they don't have many things to be feeling excited about. One thing they do have is Stevie Teggart. Him playing for Saint Monnina is like Messi playing for Swindon Town.
Stevie Teggart reaquinted himself with another former top tier Hotshot Kris Fletcher. Fletcher was always a good player but he never reached the heights of Teggart.
It was no real surprise when Teggart took the opening frame of the night with some superb pool on Fletchers own table. First blood to the visitors.
Declan Brady beat Marty Bolton and the 2-0 advantage was the cushion Bar No 7 could never catch.
Richard Fletcher got Bar No 7 off the mark against Tom McGuinness but the Saints hit back through Stevie Cunningham when he beat namesake Shane Cunningham. 3-1 St. Monnina.
Kevin Lennon narrowed the gap again for Bar No 7 when he rode his luck against Andrew Mackin. At 3-2 it The Saints that came out strongest in the back 3.
Michael Teggart, Paddy McCann and Conor McQuiad turned up the gas in Bar 7 to run out comfortable winners.
Jeremy O'Brien, JP Lennon and Stephen O'Callaghan falling short.
Bar No. 7 missed the chance to go top but are still only a single point off top spot.

Cavern Bar will be delighted if the can avoid relegation this season. They have limited players at their disposal and are punching slightly above their weight from the players they have available to them. They can take a lot of heart from taking Johnny Murphy's to the final frame although David McKevitt will be very disappointed he couldn't beat Patrick Quinn.
Kieran Larkin and Marty White had Murphy's 2-1 up but Stephen Byrne and Matthew Cregan levelled twice for 2-2 at the half way mark.
Kevin Crilly and the superb Darren O'Hanlon fired Murphy's 4-2 up but the ever reliable Damon Murphy gave Cavern hope of a draw when he made it 4-3.
