ROVERS were the winners in the Wrington Vale Snooker League, despite having a free week as their two main rivals took points off each other with a 3-3 draw.

Highlight of the game between Frames and Triangles was Joe Jarad’s break of 51 in the opening frame against Darren Lowis.

Clevedon Conservatives B stay in fourth place after a good natured match with Backwell Lucky 13. Dave Crees opened up for the Clevedon side with a couple of good winning frames against Mitchell Wilson.

Mark Litson’s first frame against Brian Lewis was close until they got down to the colours, where he potted an excellent long blue to get down nicely on the pink in the middle pocket. Mark’s second frame went down to the black against Mike Wilson with Mike having to use the long equipment to attempt a tricky black near the side cushion. An unfortunate miscue made the pot easier for Mark in the baulk corner pocket to win 45-42.

Brian played well against Simon Cambridge in the fifth frame and Simon did not have everything his own way with the only difference being that he potted the yellow to pink to win it. Mike deserved credit for battling on well in the final frame where Simon’s break of 27, which should have been more, was again the difference in securing the 6-0 win.

Mid-table Peelers and Clevedon Conservatives A fought out a 3-3 draw at Mizzymead. Rich Powell played well against Ashley Hind to take the opener and Andy Jones took on Rob Brown in the second who played a good safety game which left Andy in trouble and was crucial in the win. The fluency deserted Rob in the next although, in a tight game, he managed to defeat Andy on the colours.

Ashley couldn’t get going in frame four and left Richard in the balls and a couple of 21 breaks tied the match at 2-2. Steve Rees played the frame of the night in the fifth against Clevedon’s top player Mark Walsh.

Mark was ahead throughout the frame until the colours when Steve, with a combination of great potting, a little luck and misfortune on the part of Mark, won on the pink. A shell-shocked Mark came back strongly in the last and exacted revenge to finish 3-3 on the night.

Peelers’ Rich Powell & Lee Kerslake made their way into the pairs final with a 3-0 win over Jason and Paul Marsh.

Breaks: Joe Jarad 51; Simon Cambridge 27, 20; Andy Sweet 26, 25; Rob Brown 22; Howard Mack 22 ; Rich Powell 21, 21.
