The Elite went in without Mark Green and his replacement Rick Hartwell was beaten by all three Rowers but brother Matt nullified that by beating Chris Penny, John Buxton and Graham Briscombe.

Penny and Briscombe both beat Darrell Wiltshire to put the visitors 5-4 ahead and then teamed up against Matt Hartwell and Wiltshire.

The Elite boys took the first set 21-15 only for the Rowers to take the next 21-17 but the home side took the decider 21-9 to retain their unbeaten record and remain on course for the title.
