The Queens Hotel kept up their undefeated streak on Monday night and remain at the top of Wick & District Pool Leagues division two.

Alan Steven's Retro1 side earned their fourth draw of the season, as his team showed great tenacity to come back from 6-4 behind to share the points with Camps2. Arthur Bruce's 8-ball clearance was the standout moment in the Lybster derby match, as Bayview1 cruised to a 9-3 win against The Commercial. Greg Simpson's Sinclair Bay side won their first match of the season, after a hard fought 8-4 win against Blackstairs. Jordan Tait looks to be back to his best, as his total clearance proved to be the best performance of the match.
Scott Risbridger, Alan Stewart and Colin Banks won all three of their games for Crown1 to help them to an 8-4 home win against Crown1.
The first round of the Rockwater Shield gets underway next Monday night, with the tie of the round seeing Crown1 host defending champions Camps2.
