TRIANGLE A extended their lead at the top of the Wrington Vale Snooker League to seven points after whitewashing Clevedon Conservatives A and second placed Rovers dropped a point to Backwell Lucky 13.

Clevedon Conservatives B maintained their hold on third place with a 5-1 win over Cleeve Corners but the Young Ones are still on their tail following their 5-1 at improving Peelers.

In the semi-final of the pairs competition, Dave Crees and Simon Cambridge beat Mike Gould and Rueben Hurse 3-2 in a closely fought match. Mike and Rueben won the first frame on the black after they needed a snooker on the blue with Mike potting a fine black into the middle pocket.

Dave Crees potted the pink in the middle and black in corner pocket to level the match in frame 2. Mike and Reuben went 2-1 up quite comfortably in the third frame with one red still remaining on the table. Dave Crees potted a cracking long pot on the blue in the baulk corner pocket and then took an easy pink in the middle to land nicely on the black to level it two frames apiece.

The last and deciding frame was no exception to previous frames in the fact that it was close. Dave and Simon opened up a useful lead only to see it slip away when Mike and Reuben clawed it back as they had done in the previous frames. It was no surprise that the match was decided on the black. With Mike and Reuben needing the pink to win, Mike went for it just off the side cushion into the top corner pocket, only to see it judder in the jaws to leave it nicely for Simon to pot it and then the black in the opposite pocket to seal the match.

Breaks: Julian Bond 35; Matt Powell 32, 20; Andy Sweet 31, 27, 23; Mark Adams 22.
