Mauldons Adders are on a roll in the Industrial Electrical Services Sudbury and District Bar Billiards League after winning their latest match, in Cornard against the Memphis Belles.

The doubles were shared before the hosts gained the lead through Luke Cole-Watts with a top-scoring 2290.

The Adders responded with a comfortable win by Sarah Watts and a narrow one by Dennis Watts, 1340-1280 against Dan Ackland-Lang.

But the visitors were not going to have it all their own way as Nathan Mitchell made sure the match went to a decider.

This paired Alan Giles with Chris Cass and the latter made all his experience count with a 870 break in a 1910-840 victory, giving the Adders another 4-3 win following on from last week’s victory.

Edwardstone Wild Horses had failed to record a win in any doubles game this season, but reversed this trend by winning both when visiting the Brewery Tap.

Pete Lillie halved the deficit with a resounding 1870-760 win.

The two-game advantage was reinstated as Jeff Bridges top-scored in a 2010-1490 win over Brett Parker.

The Tap put the outcome in the balance as Pat Parmenter gained a vital win, followed by Del Atton completing the double over Doedy Munson, who he had earlier beaten in the Captain’s Cup.

This left a decider to be played between Charlie Sansum and Paul Rose and it was the Wild Horse player who just prevailed 770-710 to give his side the narrowest of victories.

The Saracens hosted Mill Green Pirates where some very close games took place.

After sharing the doubles, James Pipe gave the Pirates the lead with a 1160-930 win, only for Nick Cheshire to level the scores, winning 1380-1300.

From then on the Saracens held the upper hand, but were made to fight all the way.

Ian Furlonger won 1140-1030 and, in yet another close game, Chip Millins won 1360-1290.

The final game also went the way of the home side, with Ken Drake winning a little more comfortably, 1200-850.

Cornard Five Bells were looking to gain their first points of the season, but were not given any favours 
when they visited Hadleigh Cock.

The home side easily won both doubles before Dave Willis extended the lead in the opening singles.

This advantage was made 4-0 as Melvin Tilbury beat Stephen Theobald for the second time, as he had defeated him earlier in the captain’s game.

Graham Rolfe made it 5-0 with a top-scoring 2040 and Charlie Townsend made a whitewash possible in the penultimate game.

This was much more tentative, but John Raine kept his cool to inflict a heavy defeat on the Five Bells.

In the remaining match, The Bay Horse A picked 
up their first win of the 
season with a 5-2 home win against Stanningfield Red House.
