Stephen Gray took the opener for Windmill with a good display of potting against Richie Magee.
Peter McCourt levelled the scores beating Seanie O'Connor. Windmill were back in front when Gary Cunningham got the better of Paddy Fisher.
Paddy Caldwell bailed out on the Bears in preference of another season in Division 1 and now we see why. Shane Feehan put Caldwell to the sword and it was all square at the halfway point.
Conor Dullaghan v Connor Cunningham was easily match-up of the night. 2 fantastic potters but Dullaghan was probably slight favourite. Cunningham is a brilliant potter and it was he that took the massive 5th frame and give Windmill the initiative they never relinquished. In fact Windmill turned the screw and took the remaining 3 frames for 2 outstanding points.
Darren McCloskey ensured at least a point before the brilliant Aaron O'Callaghan and Brendan McVerry rounded off a throughly comprehensive victory 6-2 victory in Omeath. Chris Smith and Paul Bruen are 2 quality players but they could do nothing to prevent the Windmill wheel from spinning.
Trainor's Bar in Camlough made a statement of intent when they slaughtered Indo A when they visited the City on Thursday night. Indo A are no great side but the went down with a wimper.
Tommy Mooney and Marty McCone played decent pool to put Trainor's in the driving seat.
Stephen Jennings pulled it back to 2-1 when he beat Declan Finnegan.
Trainors showed their class by blitzing the last 5 frames on the spin.
Debutant Liam Bradley, Charlie Doherty, Noel Bradley, Lukie Phelan and Pearse Casey the Trainor's winners.
Chris McCormack, Art Ruddy, Stephen Quinn, Peter Smyth, Gerard O'Connell, Brian O'Connor and Conor Curran the Indo lads that need to hope things improve.
James O'Hagan, Seamus McVerry, Gerard Hughes and Seamus Graham 'schooled' Ballyholland Harps as Dan's C raced into a 4-0 lead in the Model village. David McAvoy, Gerard McCoy, Kevin McGovern and Jim McMahon got caned in the Dan's Headquarters.
Leading 4-0 South Armagh player Niall Connelly smashed in an excellent 8 ball finish to defeat a more than useful Robbie White. Connolly's masterclass wrapped up the 2 points after just 5 frames before Dan's finally took their foot off the gas.
Jimmy McVerry and Christopher Smith rolled out the deckchairs and let Giby Vettiental and Martin O'Hare putting a bit of respectability on the scoreline.
Seamus Tumilty and Colm Shields battled out a low quality final frame and it was Tumilty who notched on a 6th frame for Dan's for a one sided 6-2 scoreline.
Could Bosco be putting down a wee marker when they annihilated McGuigan's B? It's hard to imagine they'll be Division 1 title contenders but I suppose miracles do happen.
Darren Devlin, Kerry McVeigh, Rooble Devlin, Gary Wilson, Paddy McMahon, Kieran Cummins and sub Liam McLoughlin romped Bosco into a 7-0 lead.
Just to prove McGuigan's B did turn up they nicked the final frame when Keith Gilbraith beat Brian Wallace.
John Hagan, Chris Craven, Michael Kinney, Darren Loye, Joey Magill, Gary Fitzmaurice and Sean Casey are the lads that got tanked for McGuigan's B.
TJ's B got their league campaign off to a good start with a hard earned 2pts against a stubborn Johnny Murphys. Murphys travelled in from Meigh and they took the opener thanks to the excellent Niall Collins. Sean McDonald is a fair player so this was a good win for Collins.
Niall Rice and Damien McAteer gave TJ's the initiative with some really good potting. Gavin Harte and a useful Sheila Johnston were beaten by better players on the night.
Ryan McIroy is steady and he tied the game at 2-2 for Murphys Bar and it was all to play for.
But it was TJ's B that pushed and they took the next 2 frames thanks to Connor Heaney and Liam Downey. Barry McNally made sure of a nail biting finale when he pulled it back to 4-3. Opponent Harry Brady had an off night and McNally took it to the wire.
Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Damian Woods made a real name for himself last season when he knocked Tristan Byrne then Barney Preece from the individuals. It was no surprise he was cool as a cucumber to claim maximum points for the home team. Kevin Crilly was never going to test Woods and TJ's B earned to hard fought points.
