Snooker: High-flying Cons share the spoils with battling Linden
LEADERS Clee Cons B were held to a draw after a thrilling top-flight tussle in the Roy Ling Mutual Grimsby Snooker Doubles League.
Visiting Linden Homes B – third in the standings – got off the mark when Scott Templeman and Anthony Jagger won the opening frame.
But the Cons host hit back through Mike Bridge and Steve Donner, who knocked in an impressive 50 clearance.
Gaz Horsfall and Daz Evans put Linden ahead again, but Mark Goss, with a break of 49, and partner Lee Pawson once again evened things up.

Brian Bridge and Jon Steel then won the penultimate frame to put the leaders in front for the first time.
But they couldn't bag the points – a final-frame win from Chris Madsen and John Leggett earned Linden a share of the spoils.
Taylor Made Carpets racked up five frame wins at Healing Legion A.
Fred Parker, Mark Stevens, Ian Sadler and Keith Southwell all won 2-0, and Craig Taylor and Keith Tomlinson shared with Rog Cropp and Paul Stringer.

At Healing Mens, Dean Austwick, Dave Leen, Dennis and Jamie Wallis, and Andy Stanley and Bill Childs shared with Cromwell B's Daz Roche, Cliff Rigby, Ray Revell, Art McDougal, Daz Burrows and Adie Richardson in a 3-3 draw.
