IN the quarter-finals of the Wrington Vale Cannons Team Cup, Congresbury Q’s played Zimmers.

Irving Prowse applied steady pressure on Wayne Ticer in the opener with a string of breaks in the low teens, going on to win 125-82.

Congresbury’s Roy Jenkins was in fine form against Adrian Smith and coasted home 125-63. This left Reuben Hurse only needing to score 21 points to see the home side into the next round.

However, he found Bruce Bernard in determined form, with Bruce scoring the better early on. Eventually Reuben’s game picked up and he secured his side’s victory despite going down by 32 himself.

There was a great start for Backwell A in their match against the Bye Byes with Martyn Howell scoring regular double figure breaks against Brent Holbrook and gained a comfortable win.

Brian Harvey hit straight back for the Bye Byes against PeteWood, keeping Pete at bay and leaving the match finely poised with the home side eight points in front going into the final game between Alan Spear and Alan Green.

This was a close game up until the 50 point mark, but then Spear pulled away to win 125-75 and put his side into the semis.

Short Frames hosted Backwell B and the visitors got off to a wonderful start with Bob Selby in top form. A continuous run of scoring saw him rack up a 125-45 win to put his side well on track.

Midway through the second game Dennis Mansfield went a long period without scoring, which Mike Tozer took advantage, but a late comeback by Dennis restricted the deficit to 36 points meaning George Rowe had to score only 81 points in the final game against Ray Tozer.

Ray started the better and at one stage was 25 points in front, but George gradually got going and, with the 81 points achieved, both players treated their team mates to some outrageous shots as George completed an eight point win.

The draw for the semi-finals on January 6 pitches the two Backwell sides against each other, whilst No Hopers will host Congresbury.

Breaks: Brian Harvey 22.
