ROVERS moved five points clear at the top of the Wrington Vale Snooker League after their 5-1 win at Clevedon Conservatives A.
There was an exciting night at Congresbury who, despite only having two players, managed to take the opening two frames against second-placed Triangles.
In the opening frame, Irving Prowse potted pink and black against Howard Mak after being all square on 41. Reuben Hurse hit a good 29 break to take the second frame off Howard by 40 and the following two frames went the way of Triangles with Andy Sweet knocking in a number of good breaks in defeating Reuben and Irving.
Despite conceding a 30 point handicap in the fifth frame, Reuben put up a great fight against Oli Beasley. Thirty-three behind with one red left, Reuben took red, pink and all the colours up to the pink to make it a black ball game.
Oli pinched the frame with the final black to halt Reuben’s fightback. The final frame went the way of Oli as Irving found the handicap too much to make up.
The Peelers-Frames match, whilst going Frames way with a 5-1 victory, only had the final frame won convincingly with Jason Marsh hitting a sweet 39 against Mac MacGregor.
Jeff Jones won the opener for Frames against Andy Jones. Andy played well in the next and deserved his victory over Nick Ollerenshaw. Jason won the third frame on the colours after Rich Powell had run him close and Nick did the same thing to Mac in the fourth.
Rich was ahead in frame five most of the way and played tidily against Jeff, but then Jeff cleared the table with a great break of 33 to win from nowhere.
Breaks: Simon Cambridge 48; Jason Marsh 39; Jeff Jones 33; Reuben Hurse 29; Mark Walsh 25; Nick Ollerenshaw 22; Richard Powell 21; Mike Baker 20.
