Matches in the Round of 16 of the JPA KO Cup took place on Thursday 6th July. Here are the results:
Kerplunk, Les Papillons, and Grantez cruised to victory in their matches against Les Crapauds, Coin Tourgis, and Leathel Limbs respectively. Kerplunk won their match against Les Crapauds 6-0. Les Papillons won theirs against Coin Tourgis 5-1. And after losing all four doubles matches Leathel Limbs conceded the match to Grantez without bothering to play out the singles and triples games.
Both Pink Elephants and St Mary have secured a place in the quarter-finals by winning away encounters against Beeches Old Boules and Golden Oldies respectively. Both matches finished 4-2 to the away side and both matches included some incredibly close games and so the results could easily have gone the other way.
Not as close as Beancrock Boules in their home match against Grand Cru or Holmegrown Boulers in their away match against Fleur De Lys though! Both matches ended in 3-3 draws but Beancrock Boules progress by virtue of their +3 points difference (69-66). Holmegrown Boulers cut it even finer with their +2 points difference (61-59) to earn their place in the quarter finals.
Last but by no means least - the match between Vagabonds and PES PC. The two teams faced each other in the final of the Cup last year and back then the match went to PES PC. This time though Vagabonds were able to exact their revenge and it was they who came away from the match as 4-2 winners knocking the holders out!
The draw for the QFs of the KO Cup will take place at the next JPA Committee meeting with an expectation that all matches will be played on Thursday 10th August.
