KARNY'S Clan opened up a two point lead at the top of the Wrington Vale Billiards League after Rejects were unable to field a team in this week's match.

Earlier in the week they had played their rearranged match against Zimmers and recorded a 4-0 victory with Mike Allen, Tina Owen-Sullivan and Brian Harvey all recording good wins with Brian's breaks of 61 and 56 being the top scores.

Congresbury Q's moved into second place with a 4-0 win over previously second placed Lindrums. Reuben Hurse won the opening lacklustre game beating Adrian Smith by 50 with neither player getting going in a match that lasted well over an hour and a half.

Dave Larner was in fine form in the second against Geoff Passmore and after an early break of 35 was never troubled winning by 64. Roy always had too much in his locker against Geoff and scored heavily early on but Geoff picked up in the latter part of the game before Roy's 42 saw him through to a 48 point win.

Short Frames had an excellent 4-0 win over Zimmers with wins for Ray Tozer, Dan Clargo and Mike Tozer.

The following night Short Frames travelled to Congresbury to play their outstanding match but despite putting up a good show in an entertaining evening, went down 4-0 following games which were all in doubt until the final few shots. Dan Clargo led the more experienced Reuben Hurse until the last few minutes when Reuben strung a few scores together to win by 10. The second game went the same way with Irving Prowse out of touch and Mike Tozer leading all the way until Irving's safety play proved decisive and got him home by 15.

With both teams only having two players, unsurprisingly the third game also went to the wire with the result in doubt right until the end when Reuben got home by seven.

Breaks: Brian Harvey 61, 56, 46, 45, 30*, 29, 28, 25; Roy Jenkins 42, 22, 22, 21, 21; Dave Larner 35; Tina Owen-Sullivan 30; Mike Allen 30, 25, 23, 22, 21; Reuben Hurse 23, 22, 21; Martyn Howell 20; Mike Tozer 20.
