WEEKLY REPORT:

It was another scorching night of sticks as we reached the halfway point of the 2017 season

Starting things off this week in the lower sections, there was a battle between top of Division Two team the MASONS ARMS B and top of Division Three team the RED LION in North Leigh, it what promised to be a tight match. The MASONS must of sensed the challenge ahead of them as they came in with a season's best total of 68 dolls to record an impressive 8-2 win to move 9 points clear at the top of the table. It was a really good team display from the MASONS, with everyone chipping in with dolls, led by TOM O'NEIL, who top scored with 14 dolls. WAYNE TOWNSEND was his usual consistant self for the LION, coming in with another good night of 14 dolls. This result gave the KILLINGWORTH CASTLE chance to take over at the top of Division Three, depending on their result away at the THREE HORSESHOES. The match went the distance, with a last leg decider won by the KILLY to secure a 5-5 draw. 'SLIM' RICHMOND was on form at the top of the HORSESHOES order with 13 dolls, which was match by CHRIS STEWART for the KILLY. The OXFORD YEOMAN A also recorded a season's best total of 58 dolls gross on way to a 10-0 home win over the WOODMAN INN. 13 dolls was the top individual score of the night, hit by TOM LAY of the YEOMAN and also by PETE KING of the WOODMAN. The GEORGE & DRAGON continued to keep up the pressure at the top of Division Three after picking up a 6-4 home win over STONESFIELD SSC. After the GEORGE easily won the opening leg, the remaining 4 legs saw both sides score exactly the same amount of dolls, but the 1 doll extra handicap start made all the difference. The final match in these divisions was between YE OLDE CROSS KEYS and the QUEENS HEAD B, with a last leg win by the CROSS KEYS helping them to pick up a 7-3 home win and creep up the table.

In the top sections, old rivals the BLACK PRINCE A and the MASONS ARMS A battled things out, with the MASONS hoping to firmly keep the PRINCE team rooted to the bottom of the table. It was a very enjoyable match, with good throwing and much fun had by both teams. It was the MASONS who stuck to their task superbly well to pick up a 6-4 away win, led by another great night by CHARLIE BUCKINGHAM, who came in with his third 19 doll haul of the season. Some lucky chap called DARREN GRANT claimed plenty of little snicks to top score for the PRINCE with 17 dolls. CHADLINGTON SSC made sure they made it through the first half of the season unbeaten after winning a last leg decider to pick up a 6-4 home win over the in form ENSTONE SSC side. With the match tied at 4-4, CHADLINGTON set a total of 18 in the final leg, which proved to be a winning score and moved them into a commanding position at the top of Division One. EDDIE LACEY continue his impressive week to rack up the week's highest score of 21 dolls, including the leagues only 6 of the week, but it proved was to no avail after the COCK INN went down 6-4 at home to the BLACK PRINCE B. Having hit a 6 to win in the final leg the previous night, EDDIE also hit his 6 in this final leg, to help limit the damage. NIGEL KING was on top form for the PRINCE, leading off with a great score of 18 dolls. In the final match of the week, the QUEENS HEAD A again had to make do with just the 5 players as they hosted the OXFORD YEOMAN B. The extra player seemed to make all the difference in a close match, but the scoreline ended with a 10-0 win for the YEOMAN. DAVE BEHAN top scored for the YEOMAN with 15 dolls, which was matched by LEE THOMPSON of the QUEENS.

So, that's half time then gents. Well done to all in the first half, lets see what surprises come up in the second half, especially with the competitions getting up and running.

Good luck to all teams!

WEEKLY REPORT:

Thought I might hide away from the sunshine and the crowds in the garden to do my report early this week! (Don't tell the wife!!)

There were more interesting results this week as we approach the halfway point of the season, played in breezy but warm conditions. Starting off in Division Two,the KILLINGWORTH CASTLE claimed a clean sweep 10-0 home win over YE OLDE CROSS KEYS to take over at the top of the league. It was another good all round performance by the KILLY, with JAMES BATEMAN again top scoring with a steady 13 dolls. The country fresh air must of effected the CROSS KEYS team as no one in the team could reach double figures. Look out next week when I'm sure they will bounce back! Previous Division Two leaders the RED LION needed a last leg decider to pick up a 6-4 home win over a much improved THREE HORSESHOES side. After being set 15 in the final leg, the RED LION managed to chase it down and pick up the win, helped by a 6 from WAYNE TOWNSEND. The WOODMAN INN ended the GEORGE & DRAGON'S unbeated run after producing a good performance to win at home 7-3, which saw PETE KING return to form with a superb 16 dolls. STONESFIELD SSC managed to win the final leg against the MASONS ARMS B to secure a 5-5 home draw, despite ASHLEY KEENAN hitting a 6. STONEY had set 12 in this final leg, but the MASONS fell just one doll short in their chase so had to settle for a share of the points. In the final match of the lower sections, bottom club the QUEENS HEAD B picked up a vital 6-4 home win over rivals the OXFORD YEOMAN A to close the gap on the teams above them. The match went the distance, with the scores tied up at 4-4 going into the last leg, but it was the QUEENS that kept their nerve to take the leg and win the match.

There were only three matches in the top sections. The big winners this week were ENSTONE SSC, who picked up a big 9-1 home win over the QUEENS HEAD A, who should be praised to honoring the fixture despite only having five players available. It was a fine team display from ENSTONE, with GEORGE WILLIAMS hitting 17 dolls, which proved just too much for the weakend QUEENS team. There was a last leg shootout between HANBOROUGH SSC and CHADLINGTON SSC, which ended with CHADLINGTON anchor man RICHARD JOHNSON hitting the 3 dolls required to win this last leg and secure a fine 6-4 away win for his team and keep intact thier unbeaten record. In the week's final match, the BLACK PRINCE B gained the bragging rights over the BLACK PRINCE A after winning 8-2. With some solid throwing at the top of the order from lead off man NIGEL KING and at the bottom from CHRIS PRICE, added to the big handicap start, it was the PRINCE B that picked up the big win and push the PRINCE A further away at the bottom of the table. MICK PHIPPS shone out for the PRINCE A with the leagues highest score of 19 dolls, which included a fine 6.

 

Back to work now (She's shouing up the stairs!)

WEEKLY REPORT:

A lovely lot of early cards in this teams, cheers!

I'll begin my report this week in Division One, where the COCK INN hosted the QUEENS HEAD A. The QUEENS, fresh from their 10-0 win last week, came up against an inspired COCK INN team, who came up with their best performance of the season to date to hit a gross total of 105 dolls. Although the QUEENS set good targets in all but one of the legs in the match, it was the COCK INN that chased them down to gain a 10-0 victory. Lead off man STEVE GRANT & DAVE EVANS both came in with 17 dolls each for the COCK INN, but it really was a great overall team performance. There was a battle of two undefeated sides as CHADLINGTON SSC and the MASONS ARMS A put their records on the line. Predictably, the match was a tight affair, with CHADLINGTON taking the opening two legs, and then the MASONS hitting back to level the score and take it to a last leg decider. CHADLINGTON then produced their best leg of the match to chase down the MASONS set of 17 to take the points and become the only team in the top sections yet to have tasted defeat this season. ENSTONE SSC came away from HANBOROUGH SSC with a fine 8-2 win after another fine team performance. ENSTONE cruised into a 3-0 lead, HANBOROUGH SSC hit back to take the fourth leg, but ENSTONE held on to win the final leg by a single doll and rack up a big win. ENSTONE captain JASON ELEY scored a seasons best of 16 dolls. This result enabled the BLACK PRINCE A take over the position of bottom of the Premier after they suffered another defeat, this time by the OXFORD YEOMAN B. It was the YEOMAN team that could sense the uncertainy flowing through the ranks of the under performing BLACK PRINCE team, and came away with a 6-4 away win. It was spirited team effort from the YEOMAN, who were captained superbly by their 'Director of Aunt Sally' RON MAJOR. PHIL AUSTIN came in with 19 dolls for the PRINCE, but that was the only shining light in yet another dull performance.

The battle for the title in Division Three is shaping up nicely. This week, there was a season's best performance by the GEORGE & DRAGON, who claimed a fine 8-2 away win over the MASONS ARMS B. It was a ridiculously tight match, with only 2 dolls seperating the teams over the whole evening. Anchor man RYAN HUNT was in form for the GEORGE, hitting the required dolls to take the points. The MASONS can certainly feel unlucky and on another day might have won the match themselves. ASHLEY KEENAN was again in good form after coming in with 15 dolls. The MASONS also managed to play their rearranged fixture from week 3, which was away at the OXFORD YEOMAN A. This was also a tight match, which needed a last leg shootout to decide the winner. In this shootout, it was the YEOMAN A that hit their best leg of the match to take the match 6-4. GEORGE FRENCH led the way for the YEOMAN with 13 dolls, while ASHLEY KEENAN came in with another 15 dolls, making it 30 dolls for the week to take over at the top of the Division's leading doll scorers. The RED LION'S good run of wins came to end as then suffered a 6-4 away loss at YE OLDE CROSS KEYS. The match was tied at 4 points each going into the decider, and after the LION set a total of 10, YE OLDE CROSS KEYS turned on the style to cruise past with a chase of 17 dolls.The KILLINGWORTH CASTLE kept within touching distance of the top of the table with a solid 8-2 away win over the OXFORD YEOMAN A, helped by a solid 15 dolls from GRAHAM EMPSON. It was actually the YEOMAN A that won the opening leg, but after that it was the KILLY that showed their strength in depth to go on and take the win. STONESFIELD SSC picked up a much needed 7-3 away win over the THREE HORSESHOES, despite SEAN BAREFIELD'S fine 15 dolls. All of the STONESFIELD team chipped away to score important dolls to help the team take the points. Finally, the QUEENS HEAD B recorded a fine 8-2 home win over the WOODMAN INN. DOUG HICKTON & ALAN COX were in fine form at the bottom of the batting order for the QUEENS, hitting 21 dolls between them.

WEEKLY REPORT:

I'm glad I'm not playing tonight (Monday evening), it's lashing down out there!!

There is really only one place I can start my report from this week, and that's the QUEENS HEAD in Eynsham, where the QUEENS HEAD A hosted the BLACK PRINCE A. The QUEENS produced a quite brilliant display, hitting a gross total of 100 dolls in the match, to inflict a 10-0 defeat on a shell-shocked PRINCE team. Every player in the QUEENS team chipped in with important scores, in particular anchor man JEFF GLENISTER and 'Mr Consistent' CHUCK BERRY, who both came in with 18 dolls, whilst NEIL CURTIS hit a crucial 4 in the third leg with the QUEENS chasing down a set of 20. Although the PRINCE didn't play that poorly, they had no answer on the night and are now closer to the bottom of the table rather than the top. Sitting pretty at the top of the Premier are the MASONS ARMS A, who this week recorded their sixth consecutive victory with a 7-3 home win over HANBOROUGH SSC. They were made to work hard for the points this week, with HANBOROUGH putting up a spirited display, but the strength in depth that the MASONS have showed through, with CHARLIE BUCKINGHAM again playing great in scoring 19 dolls. There was a last leg shootout in Woodstock between the BLACK PRINCE B and CHADLINGTON SSC, with the visitors taking the final leg to secure a hard earned 5-5 draw to maintain their undefeated run. In the final match of the top sections, ENSTONE SSC came away with a 8-2 home win over a understrength COCK INN. Both anchor men, STEVE DUCKER (ENSTONE) & EDDIE LACEY (COCK INN) secured what could be vital points at various times in the match after holding thier nerves to hit 4's. Good work chaps!

In the lower sections, it was a good night for all of the teams playing at home. The biggest winners were the KILLINGWORTH CASTLE, who recorded a 8-2 home win over the QUEENS HEAD B. The KILLY had a full squad of 9 players, all of which came up with important dolls, in particular anchor man JAMES BATEMAN. Well done to the QUEENS though, who stuck at it and won the final leg to avoid the whitewash. The next biggest winners were the WOODMAN INN, who had a 7-3 win over next door neighbours the MASONS ARMS B. KEVIN JOHNSON was in fine form for the WOODMAN with 15 dolls, which helped to inflict a first defeat of the season for the MASONS. The Division Two title race looks like it's going to be a close run thing, with only 11 points sperating all four teams. Also winning 7-3 were the GEORGE & DRAGON, who won the Long Hanborough derby over neighbours the THREE HORSESHOES. It needed a last leg decider for the GEORGE to secure the win, and I'm sure the HORSESHOES will be disappointed not to have made the journey home with a draw. The last home win of the week was by the RED LION, who beat the OXFORD YEOMAN A 6-4. It was actually the YEOMAN that looked favourites to win half way through the match, leading 4-2 and setting an impressive 15 dolls in the fourth leg, but a superb chase from the RED LION, which eneded in the bottom two players WAYNE TOWNSEND & MARCUS COPELIN hitting 9 dolls between them to take the leg. The LION then went on to take the final leg and win the match. The only match which didn't end in a home win was at Stonesfield, where STONESFIELD SSC drew 5-5 with YE OLDE CROSS KEYS. The match was poised at 4-4 going into the final leg, but niether team could take advantage, and the match ended in what looked like a fair result.

WEEKLY REPORT:

The biggest shock of week number five was that it was actually warm enough for some people to wear shorts! Although after looking at some of the pasty white pins on show I think we might have to bring in a dress code to the rules for next year!

Starting things off this week in the lower sections, there was a fantastic match in Wootton. where the KILLINGWORTH CASTLE played host to the WOODMAN INN. It was an incredibly close match, with both teams hitting the same amount of total dolls. Both anchor men had to earn their wages, with JAMES BATEMAN from THE KILLY & PETE KING from the WOODMAN both hitting good scores at various points to tie legs, with the overall result ending in a 7-3 home win. THE RED LION recorded another big win, this time 10-0 away at the QUEENS HEAD B, with WAYNE TOWNSEND impressing again with a 15 doll haul.There was an all Division Two affair in Long Hanborough, where the THREE HORSESHOES hosted the MASONS ARMS B. With both teams fielding strong lineups, it always looked like the points would be shared. However, it was the MASONS that hit the ground running, winning the first three legs, before the HORSESHOES hit back to take the final two legs to limit the defeat to 4-6. Division Two Top Doll contenders ALEX CHAMBERLAIN (16 dolls, HORSESHOES) & ASHLEY KEENAN (17 dolls, MASONS), both showed their quality. The final two matches in these divisions both went to last leg shootouts. Firstly, the GEORGE & DRAGON managed to remain unbeaten after a close 6-4 win at YE OLDE CROSS KEYS, with MARK BOWERMAN hitting the winning doll in the last leg. In the other match, the OXFORD YEOMAN A came out on top 6-4 over STONESFIELD SSC, after saving thier best leg of the match to the important final leg to take the points.

In the top sections, there was an impressive display by the BLACK PRINCE B, who picked up a maximum 10-0 away win over HANBOROUGH SSC. The PRINCE'S opening two throwers NIGEL KING & DARRELL CROSS both had 17 dolls, which helped the the PRINCE chase down totals in all but the very first leg. CHADLINGTON SSC continued their unbeaten start to the season with solid 8-2 home win over OXFORD YEOMAN B, helped by a first 6 of the season by the ever young TONY BRICE. DAVE BEHAN of the YEOMAN continued his good form with 16 dolls, but it was the team effort by CHADLINGTON that helped take the points. There seemed to be three teams playing in the match between the MASONS ARMS A & ENSTONE SSC. ENSTONE opened up with a set of 21, which included a 6 from 'tiny' GEORGE WILLIAMS, to take the first leg, but then seemed to forget how to throw as the MASONS flexed their muscles to easily take a 6-2 lead. ENSTONE did then manage to wake up in time for the final leg, meaning the result ended in a 6-4 home win to extend the MASONS lead at the top of the table. CHARLIE BUCKINGHAM was again on top form coming in with the leagues highest weekly score of 19 dolls. In the week's final match, the BLACK PRINCE A came away with a lucky 6-4 home win over a determined COCK INN after winning a last leg shootout. There was very little between the two sides all night, and the PRINCE had lead off man BARRY TOWNSEND to thank after he hit a 6 in the final leg to help them stutter over the line.

 

All cards were again nice and early this week, so thanks for this!

WEEKLY REPORT:

Drizzle drizzle drizzle. Poxy weather

Sorry for the delay chaps. Our host website has been having problems meaning thatI haven't been able to edit anything. Which is a bit of luck as I've had some late cards this week! Tut Tut

I'll start things off this week with the top two sections. Unbeaten MASONS ARMS A made the trip to Woodstock to play THE BLACK PRINCE B, and didn't they play well! They opened up with a league best leg score of a massive 29 as they raced into a 2-0 lead, and then were leading 7-1 with one leg remaining. However, THE PRINCE battled hard to take the final leg, resulting in a 7-3 away win for THE MASONS. RAY GRANT yet again proved that class is permanent, coming in with a fantastic 22 doll haul. Well done to both teams in what looked like a great match. There was also an away win for THE BLACK PRINCE A over ENSTONE SSC. With ENSTONE winning the first two legs, the word 'crisis' was being muttered about the stuttering PRINCE team, but they just about held their nerve to win the next three legs and pick up a much needed victory. There was yet another away win in Freeland, as HANBOROUGH SSC won at the OXFORD YEOMAN B. With both teams missing key players, it was HANBOROUGH that dealt with things the best, winning the first three legs to lead 6-0. But the YEOMAN hit back to win the fifth leg and tie the last, to limit things to 7-3.

In Division Two, all four sides played matches against eachother. Starting off at THE MASONS ARMS B, they played host to YE OLDE CROSS KEYS, and won a tight match 8-2 to continue their good run of form. The other match in this division was between THE WOODMAN INN and the THREE HORSESHOES. The match was close as predicted, with the WOODMAN anchor man PETE KING hitting crucial dolls at key times to help the home team win 8-2.

In Division Three, there was two matches and two draws! The RED LION hosted the KILLINGWORTH CASTLE, and had anchor man MARCUS COPELIN to thank, after he hit the 4 dolls required in the final leg to tie the match 5-5. There was also a last leg decider at the GEORGE & DRAGON, who were playing the OXFORD YEOMAN A. The GEORGE were leading 5-3 going into the final leg, but the YEOMAN, helped by a 6 from JOE LANGFORD, managed to take the leg to secure the 5-5 draw.

WEEKLY REPORT:

Firstly,can all teams please note the updated information found on the home page regarding postponed fixtures.

Now that's done, it's on to business...

After experiencing throwing in some warm weather the night before, the cold & rain returned for yet another tough round of Thursday night fixtures. Surely this can't continue for much longer, can it?

I will start things off this week with in Division One, where CHADLINGTON SSC hosted THE COCK INN. Before a stick was thrown this looked like it would be a tight match, and that was indeed the case. After 3 legs the scores were tied at 3-3, so when THE COCK INN won the 4th leg 22-18 they were in a strong position to pick up the win. However, with 2 dolls required to secure the win, in form anchor man EDDIE LACEY was unable to finish it off, meaning the match was a 5-5 draw. The top sections only away winners were ENSTONE SSC, who came away from THE BLACK PRINCE B with a good 6-4 win. This match was also close, with it going to a last leg decider, in which ENSTONE hit a season's best of 23 dolls to take the leg and win the match.The biggest winners in these division's were THE MASONS ARMS A, who were slightly off by their impressive early season form but still came out with a good 9-1 home win over THE OXFORD YEOMAN B.The final match was at HANBOROUGH SSC, who hosted QUEENS HEAD A, which was another match that needed a last leg decider. This time it was the home side that won through to take the match 6-4, after chasing down THE QUEENS set of 15 dolls. Lead off man LEE THOMPSON was in fine form for THE QUEENS with 21 dolls, but it was a fine team performance from HANBOROUGH that enabled them to take the points.

In Division Three, THE KILLINGWORTH CASTLE hosted near neighbours STONESFIELD SSC, and came out 8-2 home victors. The opening 2 legs were tied, but THE KILLINGWORTH managed to win the final 3 legs, two of which were by just a single doll. A change in batting order seemed to work well for THE KILLY, with GRAHAM EMPSON moving down the order and coming in with an impressive haul of 15 dolls. The only away winners in these divisions were the GEORGE & DRAGON, who made it made two wins from two after picking up a 7-3 win at QUEENS HEAD B. The QUEENS actually led 3-1 after 2 legs, but the GEORGE hit back to take the final 3 legs to secure a good win.The other two matches both ended in 8-2 home wins, with the RED LION beating the WOODMAN INN and YE OLDE CROSS KEYS beating the THREE HORSESHOES. WAYNE TOWNSEND continued his fine start to the season with 16 dolls for the RED LION, while RAY BARSON stepped up with an excellent 19 dolls for YE OLDE CROSS KEYS.

WEEKLY REPORT

BEFORE I START MY REPORT ON THIS WEEK'S LEAGUE MATCHES, I MUST DO A QUICK REPORT ON ANOTHER FIXTURE THAT TOOK PLACE THIS WEEK. THE MATCH IN QUESTION WAS THE KNOCKOUT CUP PRELIMINARY ROUND FIXTURE BETWEEN THE BLACK PRINCE A CHADLINGTON SSC. WITH THE PRINCE A TEAM BEING UNDEFEATED IN THIS COMPETITION SINCE WAY BACK IN 2012, THERE WAS A MAJOR SHOCK AS THEY WERE COMFORTABLY DEFEATED 7-1 OVER 4 LEGS BY A DETERMINED CHADLINGTON SIDE, MEANING THAT THERE WILL FINALLY BE A DIFFERENT NAME ON THE CUP THIS YEAR. CONGRATULATIONS TO CHADLINGTON AFTER PRODUCING SUCH A DOMINATING TEAM PERFORMANCE AND GOOD LUCK IN THE NEXT ROUND.

 

AS FOR THE LEAGUE ACTION THIS WEEK, THE BIG WINNERS IN DIVISION TWO WERE THE MASON ARMS B, WHO RACKED UP A 8-2 HOME WIN OVER THE QUEENS HEAD B, WITH THE ONLY LEG THAT THEY LOST BEING THE ONLY LEG IN WHICH THEY DIDN'T SET. IT WAS A SOLID TEAM EFFORT BY THE MASONS, ESPECIALLY AS THEY WERE GIVING AWAY A 4 DOLL HANDICAP START, SO THEY MUST BE PLEASED WITH THE WIN. THE WOODMAN INN CAME OUT 7-3 WINNERS OVER DIVISION TWO RIVALS YE OLDE CROSS KEYS AFTER A LOW SCORING CLOSE MATCH WHICH COULD OF GONE EITHER WAY. THE OXFORDSHIRE YEOMAN A BATTLED BACK TO WIN THE LAST LEG AGAINST THE THREE HORSESHOES TO CLAIM A 5-5 DRAW, IN A MATCH THAT WAS PLAYED ON THE WEDNESDAY EVENING. WELL DONE TO BOTH CAPTAINS & TEAMS FOR SORTING THIS OUT BY THE WAY. IN THE FINAL MATCH OF THE LOWER DIVISIONS, THE RED LION PICKED UP THIER FIRST VICTORY IN THE LEAGUE WITH A NARROW 6-4 WIN AWAY AT STONESFIELD SSC.

 

IN THE TOP SECTIONS, IT WAS 8-2 SCORELINES IN ALL FOUR FIXTURES. STARTING WITH THE MASONS ARMS A, WHO CONTINUED THEIR IMPRESSIVE START TO THE SEASON WITH A GOOD 8-2 AWAY WIN AT THE QUEENS HEAD A IN WHAT LOOKED LIKE A VERY ENTERTAINING MATCH. EACH SIDE HAD A PLAYER HIT A 6, WITH CHARLIE BUCKINGHAM (MASONS) HITTING HIS IN THE OPENING LEG AND JEFF GLENISTER (QUEENS) HITTING HIS IN THE FINAL LEG. THE BLACK PRINCE B ALSO RECORDED A STRONG 8-2 AWAY WIN WHEN THEY MADE THE TRIP TO THE OXFORDSHIRE YEOMAN B, WITH  THE MIDDLE LEG BEING THE ONLY LEG THAT THEY WERE BEATEN IN.THE OTHER 8-2 AWAY WIN WAS RECORDED BY CHADLINGTON SSC, WHO ON THE BACK OF THEIR FINE CUP WIN AN HOUR EARLIER, WENT ON TO PUNISH THE BLACK PRINCE A SOME MORE TO INFLICT A SECOND DEFEAT OF THE EVENING. IT WAS A FANTASTIC TEAM EFFORT BY CHADLINGTON, WHO DESERVED THE POINTS AND LEFT THE HOME CAPTAIN SCRATCHING HIS HEAD. THE ONLY 8-2 WIN RECORDED BY THE HOME SIDE WAS THE COCK INN. THEY LOST THE OPENING LEG AGAINST HANBOROUGH SSC, BUT HIT BACK TO TAKE ALL OF THE REMAINING LEGS TO SECURE A BIG WIN, WITH ANCHOR MAN EDDIE LACEY IN FINE FORM WITH A GOOD TOTAL OF 19 DOLLS.
