Hunter Mining Methods Miscues versus Check Side:
Garry Bender versus Mal Hewitt: It was a good game by both and it was Bender who held out a determined Hewitt 55 - 49. Dennis Goodwin versus Michael Wellings: Wellings did play some very good shots but it was the consistency of Goodwin who did it easy 72 - 47.
Brian Nightingale versus Jack Bilby: Nightingale continued his form from last week playing well whilst Bilby only played well in patches as Nightingale won easily 50 - 30.
Matt Tattersall versus Denzel Nicholson: Nicholson scored a 15 break though it was not enough as Tattersall reversed the first round result to win 59 - 45.
Paul Wilcox versus Aaron Vandermeer: When the black was finally potted the scores were level so the black ball was re-spotted to find the winner and it was Vandermeer who potted that to win 46 - 39 in a good game by both.
Ritchie Bilby versus Luke Morris: Bilby lead for most of the game but once Morris scored a 19 break it was enough for him to take and maintain the lead to win 62 - 41.

Lithgow Valley Storage Helmets versus Carpet One Tall Timbers:
Ian Bulkeley versus Frank Wawn: Wawn eventually got back on track as he held out a fast finishing Bulkeley 59 - 39 and the result was not a reflection of the game.
Dillan McBey versus Howie Fisher: McBey almost pulled off a win but Fisher did very well to pull this out of the fire for a very close result 53 - 51.
Chris Smart versus Maurie Smith: Smith was making a lot of errors and gave points to his opponent and Smart scored 46 points in three breaks of 16,16 and 14 as he put Smith into the '100' club 116- 14.
Ian Miles versus Steve Hewitt: Hewitt never gave up as he tried very hard but it was the 'formaldehyde express' Miles at his best as he ground out a 70 - 49 win.
Robert Farnsworth versus Michael McCosker: Farnsworth was feeling jittery as McCosker was coming home strong and nearly took the game but Farnsworth held his nerve to only just win 48 - 46.
Brett Bradley versus Bill Cook: This was all one way as 'Botox' Bradley played a very good game to beat Cook 69 - 31 who though did try hard.
The players of the match were Chris Smart and Frank Wawn.
