TRIANGLE A have gone back to the top of the Wrington Vale Snooker League following their 6-0 drubbing of previously in-form Peelers.

George Rowe was totally outplayed by Darren Lowis in the opening frame as Darren hardly missed a ball and whilst not to as high a standard in frame two, was still far too good for George and won both frames comfortably.

Andy Sweet knocked in a fabulous break of 41 in the next, although Lee Kerslake hit back immediately with a 22 to stay in contention. The frame went down to the colours and Lee did well to stay on Andy’s coat tails, but eventually Andy deservedly crossed the line.

Frame four came and went in a flash (10 minutes) as Andy hammered Rich Powell, who only managed two reds. In frame five, Matt Powell surged a long way ahead of Lee who came back a tad, but in the end Matt to win 61-37.

Frame six, however, was very tight. Rich was ahead the entire frame until Matt potted the final black although that doesn’t tell the whole story, as Matt, at one stage with only the last three colours left, needed two snookers.

He got one on the blue and the other on the pink showing a real nous for angles coupled with great touch to nail them. A length of the table black sealed the comeback in a match which, despite the scoreline, was played with great spirit by all players.

Second placed Rovers proved too strong for Frames in third place with an impressive 5-1 victory and the Young Ones defeated Backwell Lucky 13 by the same score after the first frame had gone the way of the visitors with Brian Lewis’ 61-18 win over Oli Beesley. The Clevedon Conservatives derby ended in a 4-2 home win for the B team

Breaks: Andy Sweet 41, 25; Simon Cambridge 36, 21; Lee Kerslake 24, 22; Rob Brown 24; Matt Lucas 22.
