Angle Management were whitewashed by the Double Baulkers in the Wrington Vale Billiards League.

ANGLE Management were given a lesson by Double Baulkers, with the latter running out 4-0 winners in the Wrington Vale Billiards League.

Tom Lucas took on Mike Allen and was outclassed by the away player. The second game was no better as Malcolm Smith took on Aaron McKee and although this game was the fairest on paper, Aaron kept the lead throughout the game.

The third game saw the two captains pitted against each other. This game was not a spectacle for the observer as both Anthony and Adrian struggled. Anthony extended his lead to easily win and seal the four points.

Title contenders Tina’s Boys visited Backwell Village Club and returned to Bawdrip with another three points towards their campaign.

To start the match, Backwell A skipper Alan Spear faced the league’s most experienced player, Brian Harvey and almost immediately Brian laid down the gauntlet with the evening’s highest break of 101 and carried on to win with an unfinished run of 28.

Game two pitched Backwell’s Derek Ellis against TB’s Tina Owen-Sevilton and here it was an early 30 break from Derek that set the tone for this game. Just one other recorded run of 20 by Tina in this close encounter which saw Derek win by 25 points.

Last up, Backwell’s Martyn Howell squared up to TB’s Dave Darling and Dave made the best use of his large handicap advantage in the early stages, matching Martyn point for point and ran out a well deserved 81-point victory.

Results: Backwell A 1, Tina’s Boys 3; Angle Management 0, Double Baulkers 4; Zimmers 3, Backwell B 1.

Breaks: Brian Harvey 101, 58, 22, 25, 25, 31, 22, 26, 33, 28, 28, 20; Mike Allen 46, 22, 21; Martyn Howell 27, 25, 24, 23; Adrian Smith 20; Alan Spear 33; Derek Ellis 30.
