The defending champions of the Leeton & District Club Pair's Championship, Leon Maybon and Wayne Everett have rocketed into favouritism for the 2020 title after commanding victories on the weekend.
While most games played were very tight, the Maybon/Everett combine only dropped 17 shots while picking up a mammoth 63 shots themselves.
The 2019 champions, who also won the title in 2016, are a very difficult combination to overcome and their opponents in the semi-final, Gus Laruffa and Ross Reiher, will need to call on every ounce of their cunning and guile if they are a chance of causing an upset.
In the other semi-final, the young guns, Luke Fisher and Brendon Donnelly will take on Tim Barnes and Rohan Dunham.
Barnes is riding high on confidence after his recent singles title and this promises to be an intriguing clash.
Round 2: Tim Barnes & Rohan Dunham d Andrew Reynolds & Brian Harris 17/16, Paul Sheldrick & Tony Spadaro d Peter Townsend & Tony Reneker 26/25, Mick McAliece & Neil Condron d Max Douglas & Steve Dufty 16/15, Luke Fisher and Brendon Donnelly d Brad Naylor & Rod McCallum 22/19, Rob Skewes & Taylor Walker d Keith Ryall & Anthony Gatt 19/18, Leon Maybon & Wayne Everett d Graeme Ahern & Wayne Kefford 33/6, Gus Laruffa & Ross Reiher d John Barker and Stuart Ramsay 29/15, Alan Semmler & Kevin Hansen d Graham Stockton & John Thompson 26/13.
QUARTER FINALS: Barnes/Dunham d Sheldrick/Spadaro 21/9, Fisher/Donnelly d McAliece/Condron 30/12, Maybon/Everett d Skewes/Walker 30/11, Laruffa/Reiher d Semmler/Hansen 21/19.
