Don Noble Bookmaker Louth Billiards & Snooker League
SIBJON Builders have put behind the disappointment of missing out on the league title as they lead the Town and Country Club Cup Group after demolishing Louth Building Supplies 11-1.
In a near faultless performance the visitors eased into a five points lead at the top with Pete Mountain, Tom Melin, Dave Shucksmith, Bob Barnes and Phil Williamson all giving their side a massive boost in their quest for a semi-final spot while up to second place in this section are NT Shaw Citroen who had to settle for their second successive 6-6 draw.
Louth Travel Centre were starting out on their cup campaign and they looked to be flying when Terry Robinson and Mark Parrinder both won, but their visitors found the right gears late on and took a share of the spoils through Hayden Gavey and Malc Dixon.
Dales Poultry & Game are top of the Conservative Club Group after replacing a Seymour & Castle side they beat 7-5, Jack Westerby and Phil Marshall were the two hosts winners as Steve Swallow replied for the away outfit who slip one into second.
Harness & Cooper Joiners didn’t put the fences up high enough losing to a Don Noble Bookmaker who jumped to a 7-5 win.
The visitors were quickly out of the stalls with both Bob Camfield and Ian Winn leading the race, Neil Ashwood kept the hosts in the running, but it was too late and the winning line was out of sight.
The cup holders J Melton Painters still await their first victory after drawing 6-6 with Kitchen Solutions, Chris Dalton and Craig Young both had second frames on their plates while Graham Evison and Martyn Taylor tried to put some colour into the visitors stuttering start to their defence.
There was a vital win for Castaline who beat Jack Westerby Driving School 2-1 to go two points clear of their rivals in their group, With Alan and Sam both winning for the hosts it was a mountain too high to climb for the visitors despite the late efforts of Bob Barnes.
ABC Riding Wear are the new leaders of their section courtesy of their fine 2-1 away win over WA Jaines & Son, Bob Strathern and Mike Rice gave their opponents a leathering, Jez Swaby took the last for the hosts whose cup hopes appear to be over after this defeat.
