And they're off...
Season 31 commenced on time and the "big beasts" of quizzing have hit the ground running. Haydn Thompson from the Ox-fford 'C' has started with a score of 51, whilst the Weaver's Alan Levitt is on his tail with 48. Peter McBride (Dolphin) and Alice Walker (Ox-fford 'C') also racked up scores in the 40s with 45 apiece. The Ox-fford 'C' sit atop the A League after Week 1.
In the B League, the British Flag are off to a storming start, Tony Browne's 36 being a driver behind their first week victory. There were wins also for the Plough Taverners, Albion and Waters Green Phoenix. Bob Langstaff scored a fine 36 for the Phoenix in a very close game against the Lamb Innn, for whom Paul Griffiths replied with the same score. Top of the individual shop goes to Keith Pointon from the Waters Green Rams with a fine 42.
In the C League, the Cock Inn are setting the pace and Peter Wilcox's 36 is the top individual score. We welcome also the Robin Hood who played their first game against the Moores Monopoly, aka the Chester Road Tavern. A fine game ended in a 12-point loss for the Robin Hood against a very experienced team, but a fine start nonetheless and we hope the Hood enjoyed it!
Week 1 will be followed by Week 2 - a fact that will delight the mathematically inclined amongst you, no doubt. See you next week!
