Triangle increase their lead
SNOOKER - TRIANGLE A increased their lead of the Wrington Vale Snooker League by one point following their 5-1 win against the Young Ones in their local derby.
TRIANGLE A increased their lead of the Wrington Vale Snooker League by one point following their 5-1 win against the Young Ones in their local derby with both teams playing out of the Triangle Club in Clevedon.
Andy Sweet and Jason Snook both won their two frames but James Sas took a frame off of Triangle's skipper Dave Cryer to give the Young Ones their point.
Second placed Rovers won at Clevedon Conservatives B with both the Marks, Litson and Adams, doing well to win their frames over Chris Bond after losing to Julian Bond quite heavily. Mark Litson was particularly impressive in one of his best frames of the season.
He thought hard about the first frame and needed to pot the blue to win, but Chris laid a good snooker which Mark missed. He didn't panic though, as Chris overhit a safety shot on the blue which Mark potted in the corner top pocket - job done.

Dave Bond played well against Simon Cambridge especially with his safety play, and had Simon in all sorts of trouble at the baulk end. Simon had a chance to win the first frame taking on a long green playing from the top cushion, but caught it too thin and left Dave up for the same pocket and he dually cleared up the colours up to win. Second frame, Dave won well to seal a 4-2 win for his team.
Cleeve Corners and Clevedon Conservatives A fought out a tight 3-3 draw with Reuben Hurse putting the home side two frames up. Alan Pople then hit back with two frames of his own to level the match.
