The Bay Horse B produced the performance of week nine in the Industrial Electrical Services Sudbury and District Bar Billiard League when entertaining Edwardstone Wild Horses.

Losing the opening doubles did not deter them and they soon levelled things.

Alice Kendall got the Horse in front when recording the ladies’ highest break of 830.

Host Chris Drake then completely dominated Tracy Reeve, amassing 2730.

The following game saw a much closer contest with Terry Parsons just edging home 620-610.

With the match won, Tom Arbon made it 5-1 and then star of the show, Chris Day, produced an outstanding game, scoring a 1790 break in a total of 4370.

Two teams lingering pointless at the foot of the table turned their fortunes round with narrow victories.

Firstly, Mauldons Adders hosted the Memphis Belles and — after sharing two closely-fought doubles — Chris Cass gave the Adders the lead.

Luke Cole-Watts made it all square before teammate Nathan Mitchell beat Kevin Patrick 960-860.

An away win looked on the cards, but Dennis Watts made sure the match went to a decider with a 1190-1070 win against Max Berger.

The decider paired two novices, Alex Fielding and Dan Ackland-Lang, and in a very tense affair the former made sure that his team gained two confidence boosting points.

Brewery Tap travelled to play Mill Green Pirates looking to gain their first victory of the season.

The doubles were halved and then Del Atton put the visitors ahead with a narrow 40 point win.

James Pipe made it 2-2 and this was followed by Sam Whymark giving the Pirates a slight advantage.

The Tap now had their backs against the wall, but a good win by Brett Parker, 1320-970, made it 3-3.

Everything depended on the final game and when Pete Lillie scored an early 730 break it had Jimmy Robinson chasing the game which he was never able to overcome leaving the Tap overjoyed with their first victory.

The Bay Horse A faced a tricky encounter at Stanningfield Red House, but looked quite comfortable when easily taking both doubles.

Neil Thompson halved the deficit before Jason Lawrence regained the Horses’ two-game advantage, beating Bob Atkinson 1150-850.

Dave Lillie top-scored with 1410 to give his team the points before Jeremy Fry made it 5-1.

The home side pulled one back in the last when Elaine Wright won 1260-520.

Cornard Five Bells met The Thatchers Arms at the Cornard venue with the visitors easily winning the opening doubles.

This was to turn out to be their only success, however, as the Bells put in some accomplished performances.

They levelled in the second doubles and then followed wins from Bob Hedley, Stephen Theobald, Mick Broughton and Malcolm Groome before the Thatchers forfeited the final game.
