Last updated at 16:17, Thursday, 28 February 2013
VICKERSTOWN CC showed top form on the oche in a 6-1 demolition of the Kill-One in the Lakeland Leisure-sponsored Friday League.
The result puts them in with a fighting chance of taking the title as they sit in joint-second with St Patrick’s, three points behind leaders Soccer Bar.
Ken Southward was the star of the night with a 140 score and a 160 knock-up – the highest of the season.
He was backed up well by Gareth Willis, Ross Husband (100), Wayne Elliott (100), Jimmy Allen and Ian Scott (118).
Cemetery Cottages won by the odd game against St Patrick’s, who had double trouble again.
Playing well for the Cottages were Dave Macmillan, Steve Hetherington, Tony Macmillan (140) and Dave Leech, while best for the home side were Dave Wilkie (123), Chris Kirkby (100) and joint-aggregate leader Ian Large.
Navy Club had a good 4-3 win at leaders Soccer Bar, with Ian Goodwin (140-100), Dave Armstrong, John Forristal (2x100-93) and Barry Crawford (133) victorious.
In the snooker, leaders Kill-One kept their eye on the league title with a 3-0 win over Vickerstown.
Martin McDonald took the top man’s game against Jimmy Allen, pulling away to win 50-29.
Aggregate leader Mike Smith was in excellent potting form in his win over Wayne Elliott, with captain Alf Carruthers comfortable against Alan Wilkinson and creating a five-point cushion in the table.
Second-placed Cemetery Cottages kept up with the leaders with a 3-0 win over St Patrick’s.
Joe O’Leary had a 31 break, but he lost as John Tyerman had breaks of 16 and 23 to win on the pink.
Dave Simpson won well against Dave Wilkie, 55-17, and Steve Hetherington triumphed in a rowdy game against Brian Williamson.
Navy Club were also in fine potting form, with John Forristal and captain Dave Newby winning quite comfortably against Soccer Bar.
Steve Fretwell edged Harold Pearson in the last game to take maximum points for the visitors.
On the billiards table, Kill-One increased their lead with a 2-1 home win over the Vickerstown.
Gareth Willis beat Derek Hurley in a late comeback for the visitors, but aggregate leader Alan Edmondson and Kevin Quinn took the home team’s points.
The Navy Club trio of Geoff Turner, Jimmy Ross and Ian Goodwin proved formidable against the Soccer Bar – Turner with breaks of 14, 20 and 22 standing out in a whitewash.
St Patrick’s lost to in-form Cemetery Cottages Club despite Billy Wall playing well at top man to beat Alan Eaton.
Billy Burns and captain Colin Taylor were too strong for Paul Kyle and John Clamp respectively.
In the Welch Don, St Patrick’s had the best result of the night as they push for the league title, with a 3-1 win at the Cottages.
The regular pairings of Ian Large and Dave Rafferty, Ken Johnson and Pat Fogharty, and Chris Kirkby and Billy Wall all played well.
Kill-One and Vickerstown shared the spoils. Tony Woodward and Sandy Hill and Allan Edmondson and Tony Norman took the first two games and Paul Fitzpatrick and Alan Wilkinson and Ian Scott and Jimmy Allen the next two to level the scores.
Soccer Bar and Navy Club also took two points each, with the parings of Ian Walsh and Ted Hodgson, Barry Butterworth and Harold Pearson, Bryan Jones and Billy Lowden and Steve Fretwell and Keith Benson each winning.
