Bosco and Johnny Murphy's went into Thursday night's crucial title clash level on 10 points and 3 off Nan's who occupy joint top spot. As it happened Mark Pentony, Stephen Sherry, Mal Maguire (8 wins from 9), Leigh McAlinden (7 wins from 8), Pat McClenaghan (8 wins from 9) and Jimmy O'Hare had helped Nan's to a comfortable 6-2 away win over a struggling Windmill Bar. So a defeat for either Bosco or Murphy's would leave them cut 5 points adrift.
Bosco got hit the ground like a Cheetah chasing after an injured gazelle. Darren Devlin, Brian Dillon and Sean McCaul ripped into Murphy's taking out 3 strong players in the process. Martin White, Stephen Murphy and Darren O'Hanlon the injured party's. 3-0 Bosco.
Sheila Johnston pulled a frame back for the stunned South Armagh side when She beat Gerry McKevitt. 3-1.
Robbie Devlin continued his good form for Bosco when he beat Pat Quinn and Bosco had a good 4-1 cushion.
John Daly beat Damian Brady for 4-2 but the damage was done and it wasn't long before Bosco inflicted the fatal blow to Murphy's.
Gavin Wilson got a very ring rusty Gavin Harte. Harte has featured very little and the confident Wilson pocketed the 2 points before Kevin Crilly grabbed a cosmetic win over Brian Wallace for a super 5-3 home win for Bosco.
Saint Monnina stormed into a 3 frame lead when the travelled to a disappointing TJ's B.
Declan Brady, Michael Teggart and Stephen Cunningham beating Carlos Da Silva, Connor Heaney and John McMurray with little effort.
Niall Rice pulled a frame back for TJ's B beating Barry Smith 3-1.
Andrew Mackin hasn't been having the best season in the world but a rare win put 2 points almost framed when he beat Damien McAteer for 4-1.
Paddy McCann is on a good run and his win wrapped the maximum points for the travelling Saints.
Garry Cowan had a good result over Tom McGuinness to make it 5-2 but it was St. Monnina that would have the final say when the brilliantly reliable Paddy Hughes made it 6-2 when he beat Paddy McGrath.
Boyds are in hot form of late and they won't want to see the festive break coming up. They demolished promotion hopefuls Sheepbridge. We dismissed Boyds as title contenders a few blogs ago. They are very unlikely to challenge for top spot but certainly promotion is not impossible.
Jamie Fletcher, Richie Fletcher and Kevin Lennon had Boyds 3-1 up. Conor O'Hare had equalised for Sheepbridge.
Kris Fletcher and Jeremy O'Brien didn't waste any time sealing the points to make it 5-1.
When Sheepbridge lose they do it in style. Just like when Nan's beat them they totally get obliterated. Jim Boyd and Ray McMahon fired in no.6 and 7 for a stunning home win.
Boyds move onto 11 points and are 4 points off Nan's and McGuigan's B
McGuigan's B picked up their 2 points from Foresters B
