EIGHT teams were battling for a place in the dominoes semi finals, and the easiest ride went to Old Tower who got a walkover.

Bird went to Turf, lost the first leg, then took three in a row to book their place.

Duke William just won the first 91-90 against hosts Victoria. This provoked a backlash, and Victoria levelled with a 91-41 win.

Not dismayed Duke went on to take the next two in comfortable style.

Stopes had no answers as Bridge Tavern, determined to salvage something from the season, got the best of some very wide open games to see them through.

The draw for the semi-finals is Bird v Old Tower, and Bridge Tavern v Duke William.
