IT was honours even all round in the Wrington Vale Billiards League this week as all three games ended in 2-2 draws.

Leaders Zimmers entertained Bye Byes and in the first game Zimmers’ captain Wayne Ticer played Brent Holbrook. Wayne pulled out all the stops to make up his handicap deficit, and led 112-110, but what Brent is still learning in billiards knowledge, he makes up for in his potting ability, which helped him go back in front to win by 11.

The second match pitted Bruce Bernard with Brian Harvey and Bruce scored steadily throughout to keep ahead of Brian who was struggling with the table. Nevertheless, Brian scored several good breaks including a fine run of 71, but time ran out for him as Bruce hang on to win comfortably.

Ian Green elected to play Wayne in the final game and whilst Wayne played well, Ian has clearly benefitted from Brian Harvey’s coaching and was in good form as he defeated Wayne by 34 to secure the draw.

At Backwell, George Rowe was on top form for the home side against an out of touch Mark White from No Hopers. George scored consistently at most visits to the table and ended up winning easily by 68.

The other two games were closer with Dennis Mansfield playing Wayne Martin next. Dennis maintained his handicap advantage throughout the game until the end when a couple of good breaks saw Wayne go in front to win by 11.

Backwell skipper Bob Selby and chose to play Mark in the final game but found him in better form with a number of good breaks in the teens as Bob struggled going down by 33 in the end.

In the other game, wins by Irving Prowse and Dave Larner over Short Frames’ Ray Tozer gave Congresbury their two points but Mike Tozer’s 83 point win over Roy Jenkins was enough to secure the bonus point for Short Frames.

Breaks: B Harvey 71, 27, 24, 22, 20; I Prowse 29, 26; W Martin 23, 20; M Tozer 21*; D Larner 20; M White 20.
