The Conservatives defeated BS20 Sports RH in their newly-refurbished home.

BS20 Sports RH entertained Congresbury in their newly-refurbished home in the latest round of Clevedon Snooker League fixtures.

They lost their opening frame as John Sullivan was unable to stop Mark Walsh winning 60-41. Des Gilbert lost the second frame for the hosts too, as he went down 58-41 to Alan Pople.

Kevin King played well and made a 21 break as he pulled a frame back for BS20 Sports and beat Phil Daniels, who made two 23 breaks in the frame, 81-66. Tony Eastham put pressure on the visitors and won the fourth frame in great style as he eased to victory 43-9 against Ashley Hind.

The pairs frame was for the match, but sadly was one-sided and saw the visiting Conservative A pair of Daniels and Walsh beat Gilbert and King 58-16. Final score BS20 Sports RH 2, Conservative A 3.

Conservative B hosted Triangle C following their shock win over last season’s champions the week before. The first frame saw Mark Adams (Con B) beat Andy Sweet 62-38 before the match was levelled by Dan Heard as he made a 22 break in beating Dave Sansum 65-35.

Triangle C took the lead with a good frame from Lee Kerslake, seeing him beat Mark Litson 67-30. However, the match was brought back level by Dave Brooks, who had to pot the black to beat Matt Lucas 62-54.

The pairs frame also went to the black ball. Litson, paired with Adams, looked like he had given the frame and match to the visitors when he left a tricky cut to the middle for Sweet.

Unfortunately for Sweet and his partner Kerslake, Sweet did not make contact with the black and lost the frame by a foul. Final score Conservative B 3, Triangle C 2.

Mizzymead were at home to BS20 Sports A and home captain Simon Cambridge was first up against Pete Skinner and lost on the colours 61-48. Ron Reeves doubled the away team’s lead when he beat Frank Archer 58-31.

The match was won by BS20 Sports A when Paul Honess won his frame 54-23 against Mark Pemble and was then made even better with Steve King beating Trevor Yeo 60-27 to make it 4-0. King made a 21 break in the frame.

The pairs frame went the same way as the rest of the match and the Mizzymead pair of Cambridge and Colin Tucker had little to offer as Honess and King won convincingly with a frame score of 74-23.

The return of Steve King to the BS20 Sports A team seemed to be exactly what they needed to kick-start their season. Final score Mizzymead 0, BS20 Sports A 5.

League table: Conservative B 8 pts; Conservative A 7; BS20 Sports A 5; Triangle C 5; BS20 Sports RH 4; Mizzymead 1.

Tonight (Wednesday), the two Conservative teams will play each other with the winners taking top spot in the league table. The two BS20 Sports teams will have their first-ever derby match under their new club name and Triangle C will entertain Mizzymead, with both teams looking to win after this week’s losses.
