StBlazeySnooker | On 25, Feb 2013
St Neot put a spanner in the works of Tywardreath A’s title ambitions as Steve and Aaron Courts along with Nigel Collins, who had a 36 break, pulled off a fine 3-2 victory.
League leaders Bugle ‘A’ took full advantage as they defeated Bethel ‘A’ 4-1 with Bob Stephens the home marksman.
This leaves Bugle five points clear but the Legion boys have a game in hand as have Tregonissey who trounced Mevagissey ‘A’ 5-0, with Barry McIntosh continuing his good form with 30 and 40 breaks.
The battle at the bottom is really hotting up – Lostwithiel ‘B’ leapfrogged Mevagissey ‘A’ in the table despite losing by the odd frame at Mevagissey ‘B’ and Bodmin Sparks picked up a couple of frames at Lostwithiel ‘A’ to further boost their chances of survival.
St Blazey clinched promotion to the Victory League after seeing off Gorran Haven 4-1, Chris Brown’s 36 break getting them off to a flyer on the night.
Bethel ‘D’ closed in on the other promotion spot after leaving Lerryn with a 5-0 victory and Bugle ‘C’ keep alive their slim hopes after beating Tywardreath 4-1 and the final game of the night saw Bethel ‘C’ beat Mevagissey ‘D’ 3-2.
In a night of very close frames the dependable Rob Blamey and Scott Mills taking frames for the away side.
