ZIMMERS moved into the lead of the Flotsam Summer League after a 4-0 win over Fuzz Box.
Wayne Ticer was in good form in the opener against George Rowe for whom nothing went his way as Wayne closed out to a comfortable win. Bob Selby started off like a storm against Geoff Passmore in the next leading 50-6 at one stage.
However, Geoff got his act together and after knocking in a break of 24 moved in front to win by 22. Wayne and Bob played the final match and Wayne continued his good form to win by 49 and secure the whitewash.
The match between Social Climbers and Congresbury saw Tina Owen-Sevilton pitted against Reuben Hurse in the opening game. Tina weighed in heavily with breaks in the teens at almost every visit against a shell-shocked Reuben Hurse.
Tina’s onslaught was relentless with the highlight being a well-crafted 34 as the match ended in record time leaving Reuben to muse who should have had a 50 point start.
The second game was between Brian Harvey and Roy Jenkins, currently the two best players in the league. A thrilling contest ensued as Brian scored heavily, the most notable being a sublime 70, but Roy didn’t let his head drop and kept going.
With the end in sight it was anybody’s game as Roy came away the victor by 18 points. The final game was between Ian Green and Irving Prowse with Irving out of the blocks making regular breaks in double figures, the best being a nice 27 break.
With the balls running for Irving, Ian tried to get back into the game, but Irving raced away at the end with some fine play and slices of good fortune as he won by a massive 73 to secure the match draw.
Well Backs defeated No Hopers 3-1. In the opening game Martyn Howell and Wayne Martin traded blows before Martyn’s break of 32 which was somewhat unusual for his game as, having accidentally potted Wayne’s cue ball, he took ten hazards off the red.
Pete was in a similar situation against Mark Wright with each player matching each other almost point for point until at the end, Mark had a break of 16 to help him past the post.
In the last game, Mark White elected to play Martyn again and played some great billiards, but Martyn kept his momentum going, clearing off his handicap quickly and continuing apace towards a 40 point win.
