Brian Harvey broke the Wrington Vale Billiards League record with an excellent break of 187.

WRINGTON Vale Billiards League player Brian Harvey broke the league record by knocking in a break of 187 for Tina’s Boys.

This was Harvey’s seventh century break of the season and surpasses his 176 from earlier in the campaign. It wasn’t however, enough to earn him victory in his game against Roy Jenkins.

Harvey and Roy Jenkins had a great game, with Roy getting the better start, but Harvey dug deep, making the highest-ever league break of 187. Not to be outdone, with the scores at 120-123, Roy ran out with a 27 unfinished break to clinch the game.

Justin Cole made his second appearance of the season and looked rusty at the start as he had not picked up a cue for several months. He improved as the match went on and won comfortably. Dave Larner also played well.

Tina Owen-Sevilton and Wayne Ticer were involved in another tight game, with Tina needing 133 for the aggregate point, but fell six short, as Wayne constructed a nice break to clinch the game and overall aggregate.

With only one player, Double Baulkers were always going to be up against it at Backwell B, especially as Mike Allen was playing his first games of billiards since a major shoulder reconstruction operation.

In the opening game against George Rowe, the home player started slowly as Allen tried to find some form and he did well to clear his negative handicap. However, George dug in and recorded a 43-point win.

The second game was similar with Bob Selby struggling to find any form as Allen reeled him in. A well-compiled break of 55 saw him catch Selby up around the 50-point mark, until a late run of 28 gave Allen a 25-point win.

Match three was awarded to the home side due to DB’s only being able to field one player.
