EMBLEM - The Belgian three cushion league has cleaned the backlogs in matches caused by the international tournaments. The teams of Op de Meir and De Goeie Queue have played a total of four matches after this week's catch-up. Op de Meir, the team with Eddy Leppens as the leading captain, took the maximum score. With two victories against De Witte Molen and Biljart Palace, De Meir team rose to third place on the ranking, one point behind BC Deurne and Biljart Express. That is the position where Op de Meir finished the competition last year.

Eddy Leppens resumed at the end of the week his team's performance: ,,We are well on our way to a good position. I played some good games so far with wins over Forthomme, De Zwart and Soumagne in 16, 20 and 25 innings. So, with over 2.200 average I can not complain. Barry (van Beers) plays very consistently, beating Van Kuyk, Forton and Martens and only lost to Miatton. Yvan (Stitschinsky) and Roland (Uytdewillegen) are still a bit changeable, but they put up nice fights. Last year we had a bad start and we still came up third, this year we want play in the top from the start.''

De Goeie Queue won his first catch-up match against De Leug 8-0 (Caudron win in 15 innings against De Groof: 50-17). Jerry Hermans started his come-back, first with a victory over Hendrickx and last night, Friday, over Bart Ceulemans.

That match between De Goeie Queue and Mr. 100 was still open from the first round of play. Caudron's victories over Peter Ceulemans (50-47 in 27) and Hermans made it 4-4, Jean Paul de Bruijn lost to Kurt Ceulemans (50-36 in 28), Maarten Janssen to Raymond Ceulemans (42-24 in 31) ).
