KIPPAX EX-SERVICE Club won the Five Towns Quiz League’s Handicap Cup for the second time in their history by defeating Little ‘Un 116-95 at the Featherstone Hotel on Monday evening.

Kippax, with a handicap start of 37, slowly pegged back South Elmsall team Little ‘Un who were getting 53 points start in their first Five Towns Quiz League final.

The teams were all-square after eight rounds at 81 points each.

After that, Kippax moved ahead of their opponents, with one spectacular round in particular that they won 11-1.

From that point the outcome of the match and destination of the trophy was a formality and by the end Kippax were 21 points in front.

The final was then followed by the league’s popular annual pairs quiz, set by Neil Aspland, where pairs of players are drawn out at random to play together. It was won by Stuart Topps of Last Orders and Steve Inman of Kippax who were paired together in the ballot.

A raffle along with the entry fees for the pairs quiz raised £64 for league funds.
