Round 3 brought some shocks and surprises, but did it bring either of our unbeaten teams undone? There is only one way to find out and that is to read on.
Peggers 6 d 5 Vigilantes
The Peggers resurgence continued this week as they saw off the Vigilantes in the tightest of games. With the away team heading in as favourites, it was the home team that shone taking a 4-1 lead before the visitors woke up and drew the game level. It all came down to Brendan Watkins versus Jacob Jones in the final game. Jonesy took out the first leg but Brendan drew level with a lovely 180 before the home team took the win out as both player fought for their final check outs.
Dragons 8 d 3 Tigers
The Dragons picked up their third win in three games as they emerged victorious over the new look Tigers. The away team introduced Brian Malone into their ranks and he impressed, taking out his first game against the unstoppable force that is Nick Potente before the home sides champion reversed the results to help the home team to their place in the finals.
Tryers 7 d 4 Dolphins
With many predicting a very one sided affair it was the away team that provided the surprises by giving the current leaders a real run for their money. Bernie the Burglar picked up yet another unlikely win over the impressive yet stunned Seb Fear, while Narell Napier picked off Charlie in the final game to make this game a lot closer than expected but leaving the leaders in top spot.
Brewers 7 d 4 Eagles
The current champions are going to have their work cut out this year and this game was certainly going to be a test as the hot and cold Eagles looked to rebound from last weeks defeat. This week the home team were ready to make an impact and after taking out two of the three doubles games went on to win the first five singles games, wrapping up the result early. With the pressure off visitor young gun Jacob Palmer stepped up and put the best 401 game with the best 401 peg of the week to see off Ned Rooks in a very impressive and improved performance.
