ZIMMERS climbed to the top of the Wrington Vale Billiards League following their 4-0 success over Backwell A.
Wayne Ticer played Martyn Howell in the opener and from the start Martyn was under the cosh, with Wayne in top form, knocking in two 20 breaks, who cruised to an impressive victory.
Geoff Passmore played Pete Woods in the next with Geoff too in good form. Pete could not get going as Geoff soon took command of the game and cleared his 55 handicap deficit to return a good victory.
The final game saw Pete playing again against Bruce Bernard and having a little more luck second time around. At one time it looked as if Pete might pull a point back for the visitors, but Bruce stepped up his game and with breaks of 28 and 23, came home to win by 33.
