Tina Owen-Sevilton was just five points short of gaining an aggregate point for Double Baulkers.
BACKWELL B played host to Half Ball Angle Management in the latest round of the Wrington Vale Billiards League.
The first game saw evergreen Dennis Mansfield take on HBAM captain Adrian Smith, who got off to a good start knocking in a 27 break. However, Dennis had other ideas and scored continuously and closed the game out, sealing a 95-point win for the home side recording his best win of the season which was thoroughly deserved.
In the second game of the evening, Steve Rees stood in for the home side and he played Malcolm Smith and this game was a close affair throughout, with Malcolm just making it over the line by 15 points to award the away side a point.
In the final frame, Backwell’s captain Bob Selby took on Tom Lucas. Both players played well throughout, with Bob’s experience taking him over the line by 10 points.
Meanwhile, at the Weston Conservative Club, league strugglers Double Baulkers took on leaders Backwell A. In the first game, Brian Harvey played Pete Wood and Harvey made numerous breaks including a 58 and a 62, but this just was not enough and Pete ran out winner with Brian just 39 short.
In the second game, Dave Darling played Martyn Howell and Martyn struggled to make any significant breaks, but did enough to chip away at his handicap to pull in front of Dave and close out the winner by 39.
In the final frame, Tina Owen-Sevilton was playing for pride and a slim chance of getting the aggregate point on offer. Tina outplayed Derek Ellis in this game as he struggled to keep in the running. Tina finished the game 74 points ahead of Derek and almost pulled off the aggregate, only missing out by five points.
