ROVERS extended their lead at the top of the Wrington Vale Snooker League after whitewashing the Young Ones 6-0, who drop to seventh.

Clevedon Conservatives A had a good 4-2 win over Triangles with Mark Walsh being successful in his two frames over Andy Sweet and Rob Brown and Alan Pople, both winning a frame against Darren Lowis and Matt Powell respectively.

Cleeve Corners and Peelers fought out a 3-3 draw in a good fun night. The home side’s Irving Prowse opened up against Bob Selby and the visiting substitute took full advantage of the final red left over the pocket to wrap up a 52-23 win.

There was never much in the next frame between Bob and Reuben Hurse, but the wily old fox that Reuben is proved stronger on the 
colours to win 56-24. Steve Rees took the third frame for the visitors on the colours against Mike Gould, but Reuben gave Steve virtually no chance in the next with a 46 point win to draw the match level at 2-2.

Andy Jones was out of touch in the fifth against Mike, who potted well to take the frame 48-23. Andy fared better in the final frame against Irving to snatch the draw for Peelers by 13.

Jason Marsh played Dave Crees in the semi-final of the handicap competition which was a close and enjoyable match. Jason won the first frame quite comfortably, but then Dave hit back well to win the next two frames. Jason managed to pinch the fourth frame to take it to a decider, and with the aide of a fine 52 break, managed to win comfortably.

Breaks: Jason Marsh 52; Matt Lucas 26; Mike Baker 22, 21; Andy Sweet 22, 20; Rob Brown 22; Mark Walsh 22; Reuben Hurse 21.
