Fireworks at Backwell
Backwell B were whitewashed 4-0 by No Hopers in the Wrington Vale Billiards League.
THERE were fireworks aplenty at Backwell Village Club this week as No Hopers came away with a 4-0 victory from Backwell B.
Whilst George Rowe started well against Wayne Martin, Wayne soon got into his stride to clear his handicap deficit to record a 150-119 in less than 40 minutes. In the second game, John Rowe showed a bit of rustiness against an in-form Mark Wright. Without ever getting the big break he deserved, Mark’s all-round billiards play was top notch as he demolished John by 105 points.
It was the same thing in the final game with Matt Northern continuing his fine form since his return to the table never giving Bob Selby a chance in the early stages. Bob pulled a few points back towards the end, but the damage had been done as Matt completed the whitewash by 43 points.
Leaders Social Climbers slipped to defeat at Zimmers. The first game saw Wayne up against Brian Harvey, who was soon into his stride leaving Wayne out in the cold for a while.
