ROVERS extended their lead at the top of the Wrington Vale Snooker League after defeating Cleeve Corners 5-1.

The first frame was fairly even until Chris Bond’s late break of 28 gave him a 62-22 win over Irving Prowse. Reuben Hurse didn’t have a chance in the next as Chris scored steadily throughout ending with an unfinished run of 38.

Julian Bond got the better of Roy Jenkins in their first frame leaving Roy nothing to go for, but it was a different story in the next. Roy trailed by 21 before hitting the top break of the week, a fine run of 42 to give him Cleeve’s solitary frame.

Dave Bond left Reuben little in 
the fifth frame and steamed home by 38. Irving put up a spirited fight against Dave in the final frame taking yellow to blue when 19 behind, before Dave doubled the pink to secure the win.

Frames secured a 4-2 win at 
mid-table Peelers. Nick Ollerenshaw played some solid snooker in the opener against Mac MacGregor to win it with a run of 20. Jo Jarad also played well in defeating Rich Powell in the second before Mac got revenge on Jo with a 29 break to give him the third frame.

Steve Rees had the early run of the ball against Frames skipper Jason Marsh and drew the scores level at 2-2. Jo got a fluked red in the fifth, but continued to record a break of 35 against Rich and Jason tied up the win for the challengers after Steve had rattled the brown.

Third placed Triangles secured a 3-3 draw at Clevedon Conservatives B and the Conservatives’ A team came away with a 4-2 victory from the Young Ones.

Breaks: Roy Jenkins 42; Chris Bond 38*, 28; Jo Jarad 35; Mac MacGregor 29; Rich Ballantyne 26; Rich Powell 21; Nick Ollerenshaw 20.
