Snooker: Cons B well clear of chasing pack
CLEE Cons B finished off the first half of the Roy Ling Mutual Grimsby Snooker Doubles League season with another resounding victory in the Premier Section.
The win saw them open up a 12-point lead over nearest rivals Linden Homes B.
Entertaining Healing Legion B, Jon Steel and Steve Donner put them 2-0 up before Mark Goss and Craig Waddingham, pictured, shared their frames with visitors Matty Cheeseman and Gary Wright.
Brian Bridge and Jamie Barrett then rounded off the night when they added the final two frames for a 5-1 victory.
Linden Homes B crept into second spot after they beat Hainton B by the same score. Gaz Horsfall, Daz Evans, Chris Madsen and Jon Leggett were their 2-0 winners while Mick Dobson and Sean Bartlett saved the slam with a single against Anthony Jagger and Scott Templeman.
Clee Cons A won 4-2 at Healing Legion A after Damon Gresham and Rob Willerton both won 2-0 and Wayne Tucker, Mick Goodwin, Craig Thomas and Paul Beasley shared with Gerry Howes, Dave Hallberg, Bernie Mooney and Roger Cropp.
Two-nil wins from George Bartlett, Aaron McHugh, Dave Bartlett and Dave Cox and a single from Dan Frosdick and Luke Majors against Chris Brown and Vic Adams gave Hainton A a 5-1 victory against Linden Homes A.
Dads & Lads and Nats are dead level at the top of Section A after the Dads won all six frames at Standard A.
Pete and Alfie East, Jase and Mathew Lawton, and Ivan Harvey and Brad Burrell were just too strong for the home team.
The Nats were at Cromwell B where Mick Goodwin, Terry Blanchard, Ryan Johnstone and Dave Elshaw all won 2-0 for them and Danny Hargrave and Steve Drinkell shared with David Telfer and Phil Revell who saved the whitewash for Cromwell.
Dave Page, Peter Needham, Paul Stiff, Mike Needham, Walt Simpson and Michael Boulton all won and lost a frame against Janett Newell, Ralph Dale, Dave Cox, Mike Barrett, Doug Stolworthy and Mick Parker as West End B shared the spoils with Clee Bowls B.
A fun challenge in aid of the league's Snooker Centenary Fund will take place at the Ray Edmonds Snooker Centre tomorrow night.
