BS20 Sports gain narrow success over Mizzymead

PUBLISHED: 12:34 20 February 2018 | UPDATED: 12:34 20 February 2018

BS20 Sports A recorded a narrow 3-2 victory over Mizzymead in the Clevedon & District Snooker League.

With Conservative A unable to raise a team to play Conservative B, there was only one match played in the Clevedon & District Snooker League.

Mizzymead were the hosts, as they took on BS20 Sports A in the Knockout Cup.

The first frame was played off scratch as both players are new to the league this season. It was the visiting Ray Moorcroft though who won the game 79-29 as Steve Rees had no answer.

The second frame went the distance and saw BS20’s Paul Honess, playing off scratch as the reigning Monty Cooper Cup champion, give Bob Selby a 30-point start. The players were separated by only two points with one ball left, which unfortunately for Honess saw his cue ball go in-off to give the win to Selby, 74-69.

Eighty-seven-year-old Frank Archer was up next for Mizzymead playing against league chairman Ron Reeves. This frame, like the second, went to the final ball following a 25-point handicap start for Archer. Reeves potted the black ball to take the frame and put his team back in front.

Once again the handicap system seems to have evened out the players as BS20 captain Pete Skinner gave home player Colin Tucker a 10-point start, only for this frame to also go the distance. Skinner held his nerve to pot pink and black to win the match for his team, with a frame win of 61-57.

The pairs frame was another close affair. Archer was partnered with Trevor Yeo and the pair started 30 points in front. With just pink and black remaining, BS20 Sports were hoping to take another frame, but Yeo potted the pink to win the frame 74-65. Final score Mizzymead 2, BS20 Sports A 3.
