Title challengers Backwell B were shown no favouritism by their stablemates in the Wrington Vale Billiards League.

BACKWELL A showed no favouritism in their match against league title challengers by inflicting a 3-1 defeat on their stablemates.

It had started out well for the second-placed team when Bob Selby quickly pulled back his handicap deficit against opposite number Alan Spear, but Alan soon opened up a 20-point lead, until the near the end Bob took the lead and closed out a 150-137 win.

Derek Ellis was quickly into his stride in the next game against Steve Rees. Derek caught up Steve at around the 50-point mark and returned a 26-point win to level the match score.

The final game went the same way as the second as Martyn Howell quickly caught up his handicap deficit on John Rowe thanks to a fine break of 46 and went on to gain a 17 point win.

Tina Owen Seveilton soon got into her stride with a 49 break and a string of four 20+ breaks, to make a comfortable win over Malcolm Smith to give Tina’s Boys a winning start against Angle Management.

Brian Harvey soon got into top gear against Tom with a 56 and 129 break in consecutive visits, afterwards making good breaks at almost every visit to win by 68.

Adrian was not well and therefore the third match was a walkover for the home side, leaving Tina’s Boys with a 4-0 win.
