A THREE-WAY battle is developing at the top of the Wrington Vale 
Billiards League.

The most impressive result of the week was No Hopers 4-0 demolition of Congresbury. Wayne Martin won the opener against Irving Prowse and this was followed up by massive wins by both Mark Wright and Matt Northern over Reuben Hurse and Roy Jenkins respectively. Matt is now unbeaten in five league outings so far this season.

Backwell B maintained their challenge with a 3-1 win over joint leaders Social Climbers. George Rowe played consistently throughout to win by 28 knocking in several double figure breaks against Graham Burton.

Dennis Mansfield returned to the table for the first time for some months against Ian Green. Dennis’s play belied his recent lack of practice, but Ian’s form continues to improve and a 21 point win gave the away side their point.

Bob Selby asked Graham to play again in the final game and lost no time in clearing his handicap deficit with a couple of 25 breaks gave him the advantage over Graham, who eventually succumbed by 45.

Backwell A went down 3-1 at Short Frames who had Mike Tozer and Tony McKee winning tight games over Alan Spear and Pete Wood. 
Backwell’s point came courtesy of a seven point win by Martyn Howell 
over Jeff Jones.

Tina Owen-Sevilton had to be on the top of her game to beat Brian Harvey in a handicap quarter-final who found conceding nearly 700 points on handicap too much. Brian made two 50+ breaks and a number of other good runs as Tina knocked in a nice run of 39 in a 300-175 point win.

Breaks: Brian Harvey 69, 55, 48, 45, 42, 39, 37, 32, 30, 30, 29, 28, 28, 28, 25, 24, 23, 23, 21; Tina Owen-Sevilton 39; Matt Northern 36, 21, 20; Martyn Howell 34; Wayne Martin 26, 21, 20; Bob Selby 25, 25; Jeff Jones 23; Mike Tozer 20.
