LEADERS of the Wrington Vale Billiards League, Zimmers, went down to a shock 4-0 defeat at Backwell A, the home side’s first inflicted whitewash of the season.

Alan Spear got off to a good start against Bruce Bernard and, with a break of 33, opened up a lead of 100 when Bruce had cleared his negative handicap. Bruce upped his game and closed the gap considerably before Alan got to the 150 point mark with 13 to spare.

Pete Woods had a great night, full of confidence and never letting Wayne Ticer into the second match consistently scoring to record a moral boosting win. Martyn Howell chose to play Wayne in the final game and whilst Wayne battled hard, Martyn scored consistently and in the end won a close match by 16.

At one stage, Backwell B were heading the same way towards a whitewash at Congresbury. Irving Prowse slowly but surely ate into George Rowe’s handicap advantage until the 100 point mark when George started matching Irving point for point and in the end came away with a six point victory.

Dennis Mansfield scored consistently throughout against Reuben Hurse with no big breaks and a 33 point victory was well deserved.

Bob Selby could not match his team mates’ performances against Roy Jenkins, however, despite receiving much of the early run of the ball, Roy scored heavily throughout with an unfinished run of 37 being the highest break in a 63 point win which secured Congresbury the bonus point in a 2-2 draw.

Byes Byes defeated Short Frames 3-1 with Brent Holbrook securing the first game against Ray Tozer and Alan Green defeating debutant Jake Clargo. Short Frame’s point came from Mike Tozer’s win by 12 points over Alan.

Breaks: B Bernard 39, 28; R Jenkins 37*, 31, 29, 26; A Spear 33; B Holbrook 23; I Prowse 23; W Ticer 21; M Tozer 21.
