McCrea who landed a hat-trick.
League leaders The Swift eased to a comfortable 13-1 win at Alpha. A hat-trick from Rab Butler and well-taken braces from Dee Irwin, Kyle Kirkwood, Andy Arbuthnot and Stuart McClean saw them emerge as comprehensive winners. Angie Carson took a frame for the hosts.
Whitehead Spartans shared the spoils with Johhny Thompson’s Scorpions in a 7-7 draw, while the Cowboys and the Warriors chalked up the same result.
Doagh Weapons racked up an 8-6 success at home to Eastway, and Greenisland Colts 9-5 to Greenisland Working Men’s Club.

Robert Henderson, with a well-taken brace, took care of this match to secure a 10-4 win.
