Exceptions and additions to the standard CA tournament regulations:
David was in good form on day one, and after the opening all-play-all games David and Kim from Enfield topped the group both winning 7 out of 9, with John and Kevin from Watford close on their heels on 6 wins to qualify for the semi-final places.
A close opener was taken by Kim on the 13th hoop. Kevin came back strongly in the second to tie at 1-1, but Kim couldn't seem to miss taking the decider.
In the first game John missed a straight shot from 5' on the 13th hoop, leaving it open for David to take the lead. John edged the second game, and in the decider David missed a similar 13th hoop shot for John to win.
A hard fought Final with John running hoop 12 full length in the deciding third game to win the trophy.
With just one round to go Simon was the only player with 4 wins out of 4, playing Eddie in the last round on 3 wins who was the only player who could catch him, but Simon needed just 3 hoops to seal overall victory. However Eddie had other ideas and proceeded to beat Simon 7-2 to win the Plate by the narrowest of margins, both tied on wins and hoops, Eddie winning on the head-to-head result!Report by Jason Carley
