Champions start with victory

BILLIARDS - THE Wrington Vale Billiards season opened with a number of good performances.

THE Wrington Vale Billiards season opened with a number of good performances.

Reigning champions Karny's Clan opened up against Zimmers for whom only Wayne Ticer was available, but despite this he put up a good fight and his consistent scoring in the opening game against an out of touch Mike Allen gave him a 70-point win. He did not show the same flair in the second game, however, and Justin Cole's own consistency coupled with two fine breaks of 67 and 44 gave him a 150-88 point win. The third game defaulted to the Clan to give them a 3-1 victory.

Rejects opened up with a 3-1 victory as well against Backwell B. George Rowe's summer league form deserted him in the opener against Ian Green whose better run of the ball gave him a 41-point win. Bob Selby hit back for the village side against Lee Carpenter, scoring consistently to win by 18.

In the final game Lee was asked to play again against late substitute Steve Pascoe who showed flashes of good play towards the end, but Lee's early better scoring gave him a win by 24.

Lindrums came away from Backwell A with a creditable 3-1 victory. Matt Northern was unlucky not to beat Martyn Howell who came back from over 90 behind to win by 16, better break building making the difference.

Adrian Smith hit several good breaks and overwhelmed Pete Wood in the next game although Pete did well to reach 115. Pete was asked to play twice and nearly defeated the more experienced Geoff Passmore with some lovely cannons and pots before Geoff held on to win 14.
