Snooker: Jamie Barrett produces a quality break
JAMIE Barrett rattled in a stunning break to help third-placed Icing Cabin to a 5-1 win over Westlands D in Section A of the Intermediate Snooker League.
Barrett's run of 94 in the final frame sealed Cabin's win in style and helped to keep up the pressure on the top two.
Andy Willo and Scott Gibbons had earlier put the visitors 2-0 up before John Ford and Byron Hatfield shared with John Parker and Steve Singleton.
This soon became 4-1 before Barrett's heroics – which was the only scoring in the final frame.
Elsewhere, the Gas Man returned to the top of the league after outplaying Clee Cons A with a slam.
Ashley Wright was their star performer – producing breaks of 88 and 60 with Dan Mumby, Scott Long, Rick Gilliatt, Kev North and Scott Templeman all playing their part.
Deposed leaders Locate Supplies faced a difficult match with Ray Edmonds A and so it proved as they were made to settle for a 3-3 draw, with Nige Emmerson's break of 46 the main highlight.
Hainton B, who are just off the chasing pack, got off to a great start in their match against West End B with Chris Taylor, Neil Russell, Butch Reynolds and Chris Fuller putting them 4-0 up.

Mick Chew and Gordon Dawson put Webbonet 2-0 up away at Clee Home Guard with John Parrott and Ken Payne adding a third.
But Home Guard hit back though, with Keith Tomlinson and Craig Taylor winning a frame before George Padley and Rick Pacey completed a fine comeback to make it 3-3.
Gaz and Ian Dannatt won the first frame for Ray Edmonds S but then Mike Dowling and Graham Richardson fought back to level the match for Peter Hogarth & Sons.
Under the weather super-sub Bob Blakey and Pete Kuzemczak then won their frames to make it 3-1, paving the way for Ian Hogarth and Mike Emerson to secure a great 5-1 win.
A 2-0 for Alan Edmonds (46) and Tony Miller was enough for Ray Edmonds B to see off Birds Eye 4-2.
In Section B, Express Appliances are back in the promotion mix after a slam against No Idea with Andy Barry, Neil Morley, Rob Baker, Paul Brett Jr, Craig Smith and Shane Newbold putting their Ray Edmonds club-mates to the sword.
Grimsby Police B produced a fine performance in their 4-2 win over Westlands Heating.

Terry Steel and Sandy Young then edged the next, before going on to complete the victory in the final frame.
Elsewhere, Steve Donner knocked in a 71 break for West End D – but it was a frustrating night as each pair won and lost a frame in the derby match with West End C.
Carr Lane Social B and Cambridge Graduates fought out a 3-3 draw while Cambridge F got their title bid back on track with a 4-2 win.
