The Douglas Sharks got their defence of the Haldane Fisher Fours League off to a perfect start after winning the opening two games at the NSC last Sunday.
The opening rounds of games saw the defending Champions come up against a weakened Ballaugh 2 side but gave a good account of themselves despite being a player short with the Sharks eventually coming out as 10-2 victors. The other game saw Ballaugh 1 spring a surprise on the Ronaldsway Rockets, beating them 8-4.
The second round of games saw the Sharks survive a late comeback from Tears for Fears. After leading 5-1 Tears for Fears fought back to only lose 6-5 on the tightest of measures. Meanwhile Ballaugh 2 didn’t let the numerical disadvantage stop them from beating local rivals Ballaugh 1 9-8.
The table after the opening rounds is:
|2||Tears for Fears||4||3||0||1||37||17||20||9|
Next week will see the conclusion of the Haldane Fisher League with 3 rounds of games.
