BILLIARDS ‘A’ DIVISION

By winning a fifth straight match, Supporters are only two points off the top with a game in hand. With runs of 41 and 34, from 170 back on handicap, A Grayson, 200-163, was in top nick as the instigator. That doesn’t detract from the talents of M Coverdale, 200-179, and I Flounders, 200-154, but they were held to 4-1 as C Adams, 200-172, deservedly earned a consolation point for guests Sams(2).

 Hosts Camerons won a third on the trot to go third. They shared the games with leaders Raglan, where each of the victors showed good skills. But with J Curry, 200-165, and A Aspinall, 200-125, scoring more freely than C Taylor, 200-170, and D Moran, 200-159, the Brewers prospered 3-2.

 Sams(1) bounced back from a hat-trick of losses to overpower visitors H’Pool Snooker 4-1. Only K Kinnersley, 200-168, played up to his form for the losers, while from a handicap deficit of 145, I McAllister, 200-164, with runs of 44 and 33, excelled for Sams, as did P Watt, 200-76, and S Miller, 200-162.

 For the second week running O. Manor were on the wrong end of a whitewash, and this time they were along the road at Catholic. A first class team display realised the 5-0, as C Cawson, 200-137, W Wenn, 200-145, K Sheehan, 200-124 and M George, 200-174, each produced top performances.

BILLIARDS ‘B’ DIVISION

After a first loss in four, D, Durham(1) have relinquished top spot. Visitors H’Pool Workmen did the damage, and started with a dominant display by M Graves, 200-161. The other games were closely contested, and though S Hogg, 200-189, made it 1-1, D Lilley, 200-196, and J Crompton, 200-196, to give Workies the 4-1, which puts them third.

 S. Durham(2) meanwhile leapt to the head of affairs with a close 3-2 at O. Manor. With very good play, G Jackson, 200-169, and I Addison, 200-163, claimed the points for Manor, but as Steelies eased in by six points, P Bailey, 200-165, and E Goddard, 200-161 were a touch more incisive.

 A single point separates the S. Durham squads, and a further point back, four teams share fourth.

 Back on winning territory 3 Lions are one of the four, and their victory at Belle Vie incorporated inspired play from K Wilson, 200-160, and H Robinson, 200-146. The Vue kept defeat down to 3-2 though, thanks to a sterling opener from B Ford, 200-172, and a snatch and grab raid by A Bell, 200-198.

 Stranton also recovered from a loss to be part of the third placed quartet. Visitors Camerons were first off the mark when J Morrell, 200-197, had the final say in a thriller. But the response was decisive, and the hosts claimed the 4-1 with top rated play from R Short, 200-177, L Wakefield, 200-165, and B Wakefield, 200-166.

 By adding a 4-1 to last weeks full house, Central also share third. A Parker, 200-172, was terrific value in winning a point for hosts Richardsons, but in similarly fine form, S Tyzack, 200-179, A Metcalf, 200-179, and D Jewson, 200-180, made sure that Central prospered.

SNOOKER ‘A’ DIVISION

Six wins in seven means that Athenaeum have the highest vantage point. Visitors Peterlee Labour area tough nut to crack, but with a terrific team display Athers won 6-1, and notably opening and closing proceedings were S Breward, 80-40, with a 30 break after giving 24 start, and K Chalk, 82-10.

 With a first loss in five, Horden Comrades(1) waived rights to top spot, as they were shot down 6-1 by rampant hosts H’Pool Snooker(1). These two teams now share second, and in a sparkling victory, M Rudd, 107-52, who conceded 50, and D Rose, 889-16, provided the highlights.

 Still unbeaten, and with a game in hand, H’Pool Snooker(2) are a point away in fourth. Two out of three tough opening games went their way at H’Pool Workmen, and a prime two frame blast from P Bingham, 82-34, and N Totty, 63-39, earned the 5-2.

 Despite winning four frames against Central, hosts Raglan were held to 4-3. The biggest win for Raglan was that from B Gibson, 47-28, while in an otherwise well contested scrap, the excellent of A Thompson, 80-27, with a tidy 45 break, earned the aggregate point.

 Eventually hitting the winning trail, Catholic comfortably beat visitors O. Manor, 5-2. The start was impressive, and leading the way in style were C Cawson, 85-30, and P Wearmouth, 88-24.

 Engineers meanwhile couldn’t buy a victory if they wanted to. For the third week running hosts Belle Vue played intimidating snooker, and aided by outstanding games from D Stamper, 90-18, and A Bell, 105-7, Vue gained as easy 5-2.

 It was also 5-2 for Horden Comrades(2), but they only snatched it by a single point. At 2-2 the visitors led by 25 points, and though B Lee, 68-44, put Coms 3-2 up, Sams(2) were still a point clear. The last was a great scrap which could have gone either way, but J Travis, 58-56, grabbed it for Horden to win, when Sams could just have easily took the honours 4-3.

SNOOKER ‘B’ DIVISION

With only three points dropped in the last four matches, Utd Services(2) occupy pole position. Clinically taking care of business they beat guests H’Pool Snooker 7-0, with the form of C Dawes, 66-20, and K Kinnersley (Jnr), 65-39, were stand out features.

 Retaining their unbeaten tag, Seaton are a point back in second. Hosts Supporters(1) made a good match of it, but the seasiders 5-2 included decisive wins from A McBean, 78-24, and M Waggott, 68-40.

 3 Lions are also unbeaten, but their match was postponed and they drop to fourth.

 Still knocking out Victories, Rovers currently lie third. Their best of our four determined winners at Supporters(3) was N Lloyds, 58-37, and they were held to 4-3 by the quality play of the hosts D Grayson, 70-26, and S Brown, 94-34.

 After two losses, Athenaeum return to winning ways against visitors Supporters(2). The start from T Priest, 74-46, was inspirational, and supreme contributions from C Chalk, 90-21, K Woodward, 80-39, and A Parkinson, 88-52, made for an easy 5-2.

 Hosts Stranton also bounced back to form to demolish the Victory Club, 6-1. And in what was a great team display there were outstanding concessions of 39 and 35 respectively from M Hugill, 95-55, and P Humphrey, 91-52, who included a 37 break.

 From 2-0 down to guests Utd Services(1), N Blakemore, 65-47, led Camerons on the come back trail. P Wilkinson, 80-57, potted well after giving 18 start to make it 2-2, and C Young, 6-45, and D Kitching, 73-46, were solid in completing the 5-2.

 After four losses, S. Durham hit all the right notes for the visit of Catholic. Though giving 22 start, R Pattison, 96-53, was well on target as the instigator, and with the four mid frames shared, a sound anchor game by L Fannan, 62-34 closed out the 5-2.

 In a bid to get a first win under their belts, Sams led three times at home to Belle Vue. The Vue retaliated each time though, and as the 4-3 made it three wind in a row, the contributions of K O’Hara, 98-31, J Middleton, 67-21, and T Tunney, 59-31, took the plaudits.

SNOOKER ‘C’ DIVISION

Seven matches, six wins and top of the tree, that’s Ye Olde Durhams. They plugged away for three close frames, and to rack up the 7-0 at home to Cameron(s) there were potting exhibitions from D Dodsworth, 71-22, P Whittingham, 73-29, and J Sarginson, 92-65, who conceded 27.

 There were black armbands out at Camerons, because the number one squad also lost 7-0. The result lifted H’Pool Workmen into second, and with each frame quite close, the most decisive were by S Boagey, 8-58, and R Healey, 68-46.

 Hosts 3 Lions climbed into third because they also went the whole hog, 7-0. A well structured game from T Dolman, 67-35, led the rout of Richardsons, and in a fine team display, M Crake, 64-25, and J Musgrave, 83-31, were in ruthless mood.

 Despite winning, Central slip from second to fourth. Visitors Raglan(2) gave them a tough battle, and were on the point of winning at 3-2, but totally unfazed, J Waddington, 79-46, comfortably salvaged the 4-3 after conceding 18.

 It’s five wins on the trot for the Victory Club, who are level with Central. A good mix of all round snooker helped them see off guests Corporation(2), 5-2, where R Moore, 63-39, and B Thompson, 63-40, made the most notable contributions.

 S.Durham secured a fourth straight win, but slipped 3-1 behind at Corporation(1). A good second frame win by C Butcher, 87-50, held them close the aggregate, and the 4-3 salvage job was completed in fine style by G Hudson, 65-39, and T Hudson, 73-42.

 Battling the odds, hosts O. Manor claimed a second successive win. Leading 4-2, but by only 25 points, I Addison, 49-17, had won by the biggest margin. Stranton’s anchor man, J Jacques, 74-62, raced into a near 50 point lead, but with the long game at stake, P Tipp staged a good fight back, including a 22 finish, to snatch the 5-2 for Manor on the black.

 Also ending in a black ball long game was H’Pool Snooker v Supporters. The hosts were 3-2 up but a superb T Horsley, 94-28, had Supporters 44 points clear. A great reaction from P Peers, 73-29, though tied the aggregate, leaving H’Pool Snooker 4½-2½ victors.

 Finally, Athenaeum claimed the 5-2 honours at Raglan(1). With the frames at 2-2 it was wide open, but the plaudits were lavished on J Fitzpatrick, 69-30, and T Brice, 62-36, for taking Athers over the line.
