CONGRESBURY join No Hopers at the top of the Wrington Vale Billiards League following their 4-0 win over Short Frames.

In the first game, Dan Clargo pulled off some 
tremendous pots, but a little lack of experience let 
Congresbury’s Reuben Hurse in and a 40 break was crucial in his 32 point win.

Early on, Roy Jenkins struggled with his handicap deficit against Ray Tozer. A couple of 20 breaks help cut the 
deficit, but late, Roy took the lead and eased home by nine.

Dave Larner got off to an excellent start against Mike Tozer with some well-controlled breaks in the mid-teens. Mike kept in the game until things dried up later on when Dave’s safety play proved invaluable and his 31 point 
victory completed the whitewash.

No Hopers were held to a draw at Backwell B. George Rowe and Mark Wright fought out a tough opening game with Mark showing his improving standard which just failed to get him over the line in George’s eight point win.

Wayne Martin was in superlative form in the next and against Backwell skipper Bob Selby. Numerous long pots interspersed with good cannons saw him quickly catch up his handicap deficit and power his way to a 150-76 win.

Not surprisingly Mark White chose to play the out of touch Bob in the final game and early on looked like that would be a good decision. However, Bob pulled up his game towards the end and secured a 15 point win to gain the draw.

Bye Byes Alan Green elected to play Zimmers Wayne Ticer in the first game of their match but soon found 
himself under the cosh with Wayne in top form. With breaks of 26 and 39, the match was soon over for Alan despite 
playing some nice shots and showing much improved form.

The second game saw Brian Harvey up against Bruce Bernard and from the word go Bruce hardly got a look in. Brian scored relentlessly, with nine breaks over 20 to run out a worthy winner.

The final game saw Ian Green choosing to play Bruce thinking he would be a little rusty after spending so much time in the chair. However, Bruce hit back on every opportunity and showed he is a seasoned player with a fine break of 58. Three other breaks over 20 confirmed Bruce and Zimmer’s victory.

Breaks: B Bernard 58, 22, 21, 20; B Harvey 41, 41, 40, 34, 32, 26, 25, 22, 21; R Hurse 40, 20, 20; W Ticer 39, 26; R Jenkins 29, 25; W Martin 25; D Larner 24.
