Snooker: Cons hot shots aiming for a top-two finish
DOMINANT Clee Cons are chasing a one-two finish in the Roy Ling Mutual Grimsby & District Snooker Doubles League.
The club's B team are on the verge of clinching another title crown, while the A team are gunning for second spot.
The top team visited Taylor Made Carpets and, after losing the first frame to Craig Taylor and Keith Tomlinson, they hit back to lead 3-1 through Lewis Singleton and Jon Steel's double and a single from Craig Waddingham and Brian Bridge.
The Cons' final pairing, Mick Bridge and Steve Donner, shared with Mark Stevens and Fred Parker to secure a 4-2 victory.

After grabbing five at Clee Bowls C last week, the Cons A team put in another five-star display – against the New Street lads.
Paul Beasley, Jimmy Yates, Damon Gresham and Craig Thomas all won 2-0, and Rob Willerton and Wayne Tucker won a frame against Roy Gibney and Ewan Robertson.
The A team are second in the standings at present, but their nearest rivals have games in hand.
Hainton A, eight points behind the second team with two games in hand, smashed West End A 5-1. Dave Bartlett, Dave Cox, Dan Frosdick and James Wootton all won 2-0, and Aaron McHugh and Luke Major shared with slam-savers Euan Hunter and Steve Neul.
It was a good night for the Hainton Club as their B team also tasted victory – at Healing Legion B. Barry Pearce and Craig Brocklebank won the first two frames for the hosts, but from then on it was one-way traffic as George Clark, Keith Atmore, Dave Tanner and Mick Dobson won all the rest of the frames for the visitors in a 4-2 result.
Colin Grey and Neil Batts won the first two frames for Clee Bowls C at Linden Homes A only to see John Baker and Chris Brown win the next two for the home team. Mel Pratt and Daz Braithwaite then shared the last two frames with Dave and Peter Cullum in a 3-3 draw.
It's still nip and tuck in Section A as Dads & Lads and Nats fight it out for supremacy.
The Dads were at West End B and went one down when Dave Page and Peter Needham won the opening frame for the home team. That proved to be their lot, however, as Jase and Mathew Lawton won the next to level things up before Pete and Alfie East, and Ivan Harvey and Brad Burrell won the rest in a 5-1 victory.
The Nats entertained Blossom Way A and were stunned when Ross Lowther and Brad Mowforth won the opening two frames for the Immingham lads. They responded well, though, as Ryan Johnstone and Dan Hargrave, and Nige Emmerson and Dave Elshaw won the last four frames to give them a 4-2 victory.
The league reminds all teams to hand in late score-sheets and ensure future results are handed in on time.
