With TJ's A getting their 2 points from the now gone Killeavy it was up to CWC A to win to keep their 3 point lead at the top intact. And that they did without getting out of 2nd gear.
Captain Pat Brady and his deputy Harvey Lavelle took their favourite players away from Thursday night opponents Sheepbridge to build their Dreamteam.
Pat Brady gave his team a reshuffle but old reliable potting machine Kieran McMahon won his predictable 1st frame for 1-0.
Paddy Clarke moved up to 2nd on the team sheet for 2-0.
Ciaran Morgan junior upset the visitors when he beat the legendry Pat Brady to put the minimum between the teams.
Sheepbridge couldn't build on that shock win as the impressive Martin McClelland and then new signing Stephen Rooney made it 4-1.
Harvey Lavelle bagged the 2 points for 5-1 before Cathal Phelan beat home favourite Seanie Markey for 6-1.
Paddy Tavey ended his 2 month win drought by winning the final frame against Conor Quinn for a final score of 7-1.
Rumours have been put to bed of unrest in the CWC A camp. Pat Brady is running a military regime and it's a case of put up or shut up. Paul 'Bunty' O'Callaghan sat out his 1st game of the season after a few bad games. Shane Phelan was on a good run of form but found himself benched again. Paddy Tavey has spent more time on the bench than McGuigan's have been beaten this season - and trust me that is a lot.
Squad members are certainly unhappy and 'Big' Pat has his work cut out keeping his star names together in this (part) squad rotation he employs.
The hierarchy in CWC are telling us everyone is singing off the same hymm sheet and everyone will be happy when the trophies start piling in.
Back in the real world there were some cracking games in the Premier Division. Whitecross had a titanic battle with South Armagh rivals Carrickcruppen. Old team mate turned new foe as Paddy O'Callaghan returned to Whitecross to beat Barry Shields and put Carrickcruppen 1-0 up.
Gareth McCann is in good form of late and he levelled beating Pat Byrne. It was 2-1 when experienced Tommy Lavelle beat the youthful potter James Toner. This fascinating match was all square when Martin O'Callaghan kept his great form going by beating the talented young Ciaran Hanna.
When Michael Feenan beat Jamie Lavelle in a bit of a surprise result, the wheels started to come off for Cruppney.
Noel Donaldson beat an out of sorts Martin McVeigh to make it 4-2 but the impressive Kieran Hanna brought it to a nail biting finish at 4-3 to Whitecross.
We've said it before and we'll say it again. Without Mickey O'Hanlon Whitecross would probably be fighting relegation right now. He has a great record and his win over the unlucky Aaron O'Callaghan gave the 'Cross' 2 hard earned points and keeps them 1 point behind TJ's A and 4 off top spot.
What a game TJ's Tigers and Hustlers were involved in.
Hustlers raced into a 3-0 lead but ended up trailing 4-3 to take the result to a final frame cliff hanger.
John Little was able to neutralise Jason Lennon's potting ability to put Hustlers 1-0 up.
Damien 'Diddles' McArdle beat Adrian Annett for 2-0 and in the battle of the tacticians there could only ever be one winner when Bernie Magee outplayed Davy Hanna for 3-0.
TJ's top scorer added to his Brilliant tally this season when Gavin McNally beat another good potter Ciaran O'Neill.
Matty Cartmill ended Dee Kearney's run of form to pull it back to 3-2.
It was 3-3 when Sean Rice had a surprise win over Cathal McCoy. McCoy is struggling for form lately but Rice did exceptionally well to tie up the match.
Richie Taylor is steady as a rock and he ended Micky Cunningham's good run since his return to the Hustlers team. From 3-0 down TJ's Tigers now lead 4-3 and with The Hustlers rattled surely the Tigers would get 2 very welcome points.
But no Jonny Adams couldn't seal the deal and the Wily old Fox Kevin Magee won the nerve jangling finale to level the scores. Ok Wily old Fox Magee got gifted the final frame because the Tigers ran out of teeth. They only had 7 players which is very dissapointing for them. Result 4-4.
When Brian Campbell beat Karl McGuinness McGuigan's could dream their fortunes might be turning when 1 up at home to Orchard Bar.
Joe Poucher and David Cromie reversed the lead and Orchard led 2-1 on Monaghan Street.
Dusty O'Hagan and Paul McAreavey won the next 2 and it was now 3-2 McGuigan's.
PJ McDaniel levelled for Orchard and the intellegent Mervyn Kernaghan put the visiting Orchard in the lead 4-3.
Two players very familiar to each other, Gerard McGuigan and Brendy Devlin would clash in the final frame to decide the fate of the 2 points.
It went with form this time. McGuigan is having a dreadful season while Devlin is enjoying a cracking season. It was no surprise then when Devlin inflicted another defeat on McGuigan's to keep the City side deep in the relegation zone.
