Seems like there will be rough seas ahead for Ship B

THE first Border Pool League games after the Knock-out Cup saw favourites Ship A thrash their B team.

Current champs Waverley A also started in fine style, blowing away the Dryburgh, while Niki’s A took the scalps of Reivers A in a tense match. High Level A edged out Reivers B in a final-frame thriller.

In what looks a sub-standard second division, Niki’s B started in impressive fashion against newcomers Frankies, Red Lion Kelso pipped the Waverley B and Bridge B won their derby match against the A team.

Results – Division One: Ship A (Melrose) 9 Ship B (Melrose) 0; High Level A (Hawick) 5 Reivers B (Gala) 4; Reivers A (Gala) 4 Nikis A (Gala) 5; Dryburgh (Newtown) 2 Waverley A (Hawick) 7.

Division Two: Bridge B (Gala) 6 Bridge A (Gala) 3; Nikis B (Gala) 7 Frankies (Hawick) 2; Waverley B (Hawick) 4 Red Lion (Kelso) 5.
