Stanningfield Red House recorded their second consecutive win in the Industrial Electrical Services Sudbury and District Bar Billiards League beating visitors Mauldons Adders 4-3.

Adders won the opening doubles, but the home side levelled with a 730-720 win. James Baker edged House in front before Kevin Tobin extended their lead with a 1390-840 victory.

The Adders pulled one back as Dennis Watts beat Elaine Wright, but Lee Harman put the result beyond doubt when top-scoring. Chris Cass reduced the lead with a well-earned 1110-330 win.

For the second week running, Edwardstone Wild Horses lost both doubles. Visiting Cornard to take on the Memphis Belles, Tracy Reeve came out on top of a high-scoring game with Alan Giles, 1950-1790, where she recorded a 700 break.

The match went to a decider between Andy Hill and Doedy Munson, and the former built a break of 1070 in a total of 2210 to give the Belles a deserved 4-3 win.

Hadleigh Cock travelled to the Brewery Tap, winning the doubles. Brett Parker and Pete Lillie, who top scored with 1830, levelled, but then John Raine put Cock ahead. Charlie Townsend beat Del Atton, who required 240 to win with two balls remaining. He managed a 50 but felled the black when trying for a last ball 200. Graham Rolfe made it 5-2.

Mill Green Pirates raced into a 2-0 lead at home to Cornard Five Bells. This soon turned into 3-0 with Andy Garvin beating Wink Playle 940-740, and Tom Norton secured the points for the Pirates.

Bells had a belated revival with Stephen Theobald beating Jimmy Robinson 1450-1270 with both players scoring good breaks, and Marcus Shepherd, returning after a break, beating Sam Whymark. James Pipe made the final score 5-2.
