LIER - The ranking after two rounds in the Belgian league is topped by Mr 100 Lier, with the same match points as BC Deurne and Quality Zele. Two teams in the first league recorded the maximum 8-0 win. Three foursomes are without points and Eddy Merckx was the best in average in this round (2.380) ahead of Ronny Brants (2.272), Tom Persyn (2.210), Frédéric Caudron and Glenn Hofman (both 2.173). Mister 100 heads up with most game points. Quality Zele still has the best team average (1.413), although De Goeie Queue (1.386) and Op de Meir (1.334) are not far down. The best high runs after two weeks were made by Tom Persyn from Mr. 100 (15) and Wesley de Jaeger, De Goeie Queue (14).

BC Quality remained unbeaten by a close win over De Witte Molen. Eddy Merckx was a way too strong for Dirk Weeremans (50-17 in 21), Jeffrey Jorissen ran pover Frenchman Pierre Soumagne with a riant score (42-25 in 35), Francis Forton surprised Peter De Backer 50-35 in 35 after an equalizer with eight. The second of the three frontrunners, BC Deurne, was up for s tricky away game against Biljart Express. Glenn Hofman won the Dutch clash against Frans van Kuyk. The new number one player in the Antwerp team had a smooth start, because Hofman led 48-14 in 18. For his last two points, he needed five more innings: 50-28 in 23. Jef Philipoom bested a former teammate, Gerwin Valentijn (50-42 in 43), Jean van Erp had a slightly better final sprint than Martin Spoormans (42-39 in 30) and only Guy van Litsemborg won for the home team against Davy van Havere (42-40 in 29).

De Goeie Queue recovered from half a misstep at the start with an 8-0 win over BC Herentals with Caudron against Horn (50-40 in 23), De Bruijn against Rudolph (50-48 in 34), De Jaeger against Smolders (42 -28 in 26) and Hermans against Meylemans (42-29 in 32) in good shape. Wesley started very well with 14, 4 and 2, then had a little setback, but ran out quickly to 33-9 in 12. Smolders scored 18 times in his last 5. Jerry's win (38-15 ahead in 23) never was in danger, Fred made a 13 in his third, but the match balanced at 31-30. Martin had a lesser finish, Fred scored his last 18 in 7. Jeepee launched himself with 21-8 in 8 against Christian, the German came back to 25-23. Jeepee's better final rush with 4-2-1 decided the match, good for 1.600 team average.

KBC Zanzibar had another zero-point-match, being knocked down by Mr 100 in his own house: 7-1. For the Ceulemans team, Peter (vs Forthomme) won 50-45 in 26, Kurt (against Miatton) 50-45 in 37 and Raymond (against De Bondt in a match between the oldest and the youngest in this league) with 42-37 in 30 innings. Op de Meir finished 8-0 in Eeklo with a nice team victory thanks to Eddy Leppens (1.923), Barry van Beers (1.562) and Ivan Stitschinsky (1,312).
