CONGRESBURY move into sole leadership of the Wrington Vale Billiards League, despite going down 1-3 at home to Backwell B.

Dave Larner was in good form in the opening game against George Rowe scoring regularly on most occasions although it was a break of 23 which was the major difference as Dave ran out to a 38 point win.

Little can be said about the second game except that Roy Jenkins had one of those nights where nothing went right for him and Bob Selby had a game where everything went his way in almost matching his much lower handicapped opponent point for point.

With the bonus point already secured, Dennis Mansfield could relax a little in the final game and had one of his best games for the Backwell side defeating Irving Prowse 150-72.

Zimmers also tasted defeat going down 3-1 at Backwell A. Alan Spear started well for the home side against Wayne Ticer and soon opened up a 30 point lead. Wayne got back into the match midway but Alan, playing his best Billiards for some time, finished with a flourish and an unfinished break of 21.

In the second game, Martyn Howell and Bruce Bernard should have been evenly matched but, on the night, Martyn was the only one in it. He played consistently well as Bruce couldn’t get his game going continually finding his cue ball under the cushion.

Wayne was asked to play again in the final game against Pete Woods but proved too strong as Wayne avenged his earlier defeat and played well to win by 28.

Short Frames visited Bye Byes and came away with a 3-1 win, victories for Mike and Ray Tozer over Brian Harvey and Alan Green respectively. Ian Green secured Bye Byes point in the final game with an 11 point win over Ray.

Breaks: B Harvey 40, 34, 33, 29, 24, 23, 23, M Howell 23; D Larner 23; A Spear 21*; I Prowse 21.
