N.T. Shaw of Louth used home advantage to good effect to take an 8-4 lead into the second leg against P.H. Mountain Cardboard Services.

Lee Cook, Andre Fisher and James Young put the hosts in the driving seat for the final as Mark Parrinder replied for the visitors to keep them in the tie.

But their hopes of a league and cup double now hang in the balance.

Louth Travel Centre looked to be flying towards the final when they took a good early lead in their clash with Dales Poultry & Game.

Sean Howsam and Brian Copeland landed the hosts with a promising 6-2 lead, but they had the stuffing knocked out of them late on as the away side fought back to grab a priceless 6-6 draw with both Mark Wilkinson and Luke Howard setting this clash up nicely for the return fixture.
