Mulligans MSD crowned Pool League cup winners and Division Five title race decided
Mulligans Majestic Sausage Dogs wrapped up the season as league and plate double winners after their victory over Winterton Jubilee on Tuesday night.
They became the third side in succession to complete the double, as they followed in the footsteps of Showmans Army and Fedoras last season.
Jubilee got off to a great start, with Matt Prior capitalising on a mistake from Smithson to take the lead, but Fairweather quickly equalised for Las Dachshunds in the second frame.
Young pup Mason then kept his nerve to pull off a clinical clearance in frame three and the lead was extended to 3-1 after rugby supremo Woody sunk the black ball on what seemed like the 100th attempt in frame four.
Veteran Quinny then put MSD in control with a clever finish, before the Goose Of Love pegged one back for Winterton in the final frame of singles.
The first doubles frame almost concluded in quick fashion, as Fairweather was half a ball short in his clearance. But, in the end, special delivery Cookson was on express mode to wrap the tie up in the end with the decisive black.
The Division Five title was finally set in stone this week, with Showmans Young Ones making it back-to-back title successes.
Liam McLoughlin’s side ensured their extended their unbeaten league run to two whole seasons, but it almost came to end this week against Mill Road.
Johnson opened up proceedings for the hosts, however, the visitors then raced into a 4-1 lead. The captain pulled one back for Showmans in the final frame of the set to keep the score respectable going into the final set.
Grimbleby then opened up set two with a win to make the score 5-2, but averages winner Johnson, Nelly and the captain completed the rally back to equalise.
Tracey Shaw then put Mill Road back into the lead on frame 11 and the possibility of Showmans Young Ones’ two season unbeaten run was under threat, but Cameron Welch ensured it remained intact as his side claimed the title.
