Paul Honess and Steve King, along with Phil Daniels and Mark Walsh reach the final of the Clevedon & District Snooker League Pairs Cup.
THE league competition took a rest in the Clevedon & District Snooker League to make way for the Pairs Cup semi-finals.
Firstly, Mizzymead held the match with Mark Adams and Mark Litson playing Paul Honess and Steve King. The first frame was an edgy one and lasted 75 minutes which eventually saw Adams and Litson win it 70-38.
The second frame, which was quicker at 50 minutes long, went the same way and put Adams and Litson 2-0 up with three frames to play.
Up until this point, Honess and King had been quiet. The start of the third frame saw a safety shot played too short by Adams which let Honess in. He made a 25 break, but could have been more, missing the black off its spot.
The frame was over quickly as both Honess and King potted what was there and played good safety to win the frame 60-10.
The fourth frame was close, with brown, blue, pink and black left and Adams and Litson seven points down. Litson potted the brown ball and ended on the blue. The blue was potted, but the pink rattled the jaws and stayed out.
Sadly for the Conservative B pair, Litson’s cue ball brought the black off the cushion and put it over the middle pocket. Honess held his nerve to pot two straightforward balls to set up a decider - 63-52.
Honess and King quickly built themselves a good lead and despite Adams and Litson battling, they held on easily to win a thoroughly entertaining match 3-2 with a frame score of 66-32.
In the other semi-final, it was more one-sided as Phil Daniels and Mark Walsh eased into the final 3-0 against Dave Aldom and Pete Skinner with frame scores of 64-30, 58-28 and 78-32. Walsh made a 37 break.
The final will be played at the Mizzymead on April 22.
