A ROUND of applause greeted a special feat as Sudbury Snooker took on Widdop Cup leaders Earls Colne at the Sudbury Snooker Club.
In the first frame of the evening Syd Levitt took on the current highest break leader, Luke Heard.
A magnificent 100 point break by Heard saw the whole of the Snooker Club stop playing and stand in appreciation of a wonderfully crafted break – when it eventually came to an end applause broke out.
Levitt hit the reds and all he could do was watch in appreciation as Heard went about his business and started potting reds and blacks up to 49 points until he ran out of position, having to take the pink to continue his break and not being able to get on the black. The next time Levitt got to the table the frame was all but won.
Colne went on to win the match four frames to two with only Tony Newman failing to win a frame, This strengthened Colne’s place at the top of the table but the question is, who will beat them to the title of cup winners?
The other match on the evening saw Haverhill beat Sudbury Snooker Club D 5-1 which meant that Haverhill qualify for the final stages of the cup at the expense of the Snooker Club side.
The crunch game comes when Sudbury Snooker Club B take on Haverhill; this will determine who plays Earls Colne in the next stage.
