LEADERS of the Wrington Vale 
Billiards League, Zimmers were held to a 2-2 draw by Congresbury Q’s.

The first game saw Zimmers’ skipper Wayne Ticer up against Dave Larner and whilst Wayne seemed to have the upper hand all the way through, he just couldn’t get the last few points he needed to pinch the win.

Dave scored 22 points to Wayne’s 10 at the end as Wayne missed two easy cannons to give Dave a 150-148 win.

The second game saw Bruce Bernard playing Roy Jenkins. With Bruce 
suffering with a chest infection and Roy in good form, this was a bit one sided in Roy’s favour, who scored constantly to run out an easy winner.

The final game saw Reuben Hurse elect to play Wayne. Wayne started scoring from the word go, keeping Reuben on his toes and although he had breaks of 22, 23 and 32 this was not enough to catch Wayne up, who ran out a comfortable winner to steal the bonus for the draw.

In the battle of the bottom two sides, Backwell A skipper Alan Spear couldn’t match Bye Bye’s Brian Harvey in break building as he cleared his negative handicap with Alan being outscored by three to one. Even so, Alan could have taken the game but Brian pulled in front to win by five.

Pete Woods was always playing catch up against Alan Green who scored steadily with some excellent pots in securing a 20 point win. Martyn Howell started well in the final game against Bye Byes’ captain Ian Green and gradually reduced his handicap. However, Ian’s play improved and he ran out an easy winner to give the visitors the whitewash.

In the pairs semi-final, Wayne Ticer and Bruce Bernard defeated Roy Jenkins and Reuben Hurse by 300-264.

Breaks: Brian Harvey 70, 54, 29, 28, 26, 21; Reuben Hurse 32, 23, 22; Alan Spear 27; Roy Jenkins 24.
