After spending recent seasons languishing in the lower half of the Industrial Electrical Services Sudbury and District Bar Billiards League, Brewery Tap have started the season meaning business.
Following on from their opening victory last week, they entertained the Taverners and recorded a whitewash 7-0 win. After winning both doubles, Del Atton increased his team’s lead with a top scoring 1390-580 win.
The visitors were unable to put any high scores together and Dennis Watts made it 4-0 with a low scoring 780-580 win over Chris Cass.
With the points in the bag, wins from Pete Lillie, Colin Norledge and Pat Parmenter completed a resounding victory.
A tip top match was in store at The Saracens where The Bay Horse were the visitors. Still smarting from the previous week’s defeat, The Saracens were again slow out the blocks and the Horse narrowly won both doubles before Chip Millins top scored with 2390 to pull one back for the hosts.
Alasdair Carnegie put the visitors in touching distance of another away win, but Ken Drake reduced the arrears before Dick Cheshire made it all square in the penultimate game to set up a decider between Ian Furlonger and Chris Drake. The Saracens man just prevailed 1370-1080 to complete a remarkable fight back.
Stanningfield Red House, playing their first match of the season, did not make the best of starts when entertaining Memphis Belles. The latter won both doubles and Luke Cole-Watts put them 3-0 up in the opening singles. Lee Harman gave The Red House hope with a 1550-1250 win and James Baker followed with a top scoring 1910. Elaine Wright made it 3-3 to leave Kevin Tobin and Alan Giles to fight out a decider, the ever reliable Tobin completed the turnaround winning 1220-770.
Hadleigh Cock made a lightening start against Mill Green Pirates, narrowly winning the doubles to take a 2-0 lead, extended by Graham Rolfe potting a last ball red down the 200 hole to win 1460-1380.
Pirates Jamin Newman and Andy Garvin put their team back in contention with good wins before The Cock made sure of the points when Dave Willis scored a last ball 200 to beat James Pipe 1220-1150.
Melvin Tilbury made the final score 5-2 getting the better of Mick Fallon.
