GLYN Ager’s Triangle C won the Clevedon and District Snooker League Handicap Knockout Cup, defeating Conservative B 3-1 in an entertaining match held at the Mizzymead Snooker Club.

Darren Lowis of the Triangle’s gave his opponent Mark Litson little opportunity to score in the opening game. Lowis had three good visits to the table, one of which was a break of 28 to seal the frame 71-24.

The second was a much tighter affair between Mike Baker (Triangle) and Dave Brooks (Cons). Baker soon caught and overtook Brooks’ handicap lead when it came down to the colours.

A couple of in-offs by Baker on the green gave Brooks hope. He potted the brown and green, but Baker potted the pink to win 67-54.

Mark Adams, captain of Cons B got his team on the scoreboard with a fine win over Andy Sweet. Adams kept his cool and took his chances well to win the third frame 64-17.

It was a tight scoring fourth frame between Olli Beasley (Triangle C) and Dave Sansum (Cons B). Beasley fluked the green and then doubled the brown off the blue to go into a slight lead.

Sansum potted the blue and was in an excellent position on the pink. In order to get in position for the black, Sansum unfortunately saw the cue ball go in the baulk corner pocket, to leave Beasley an easy pink to seal frame (52-30) and match for Triangle C.
