ELMS B 0-5 THREE HORSESHOES :'( Grrrrrrrrrrrr-Not really the result I had hoped for in my first league match back I pegged out after getting the break back when the scores were about even.Mal compiled a good break and by the time I got the break again it was too late We all had chances but it was not to be :-/ Well played KT and his team
There was a fine game on the new cloth at the Warren Club with the Swan coming from 2-0 down to win 3-2.
In the first Roger Taylor was about 4000 ahead when Nick Brown compiled a steady 6000.
In the second I had 3 goes at the break to Barry Holt's 1 and won 9000-700.
Matthew Squire killed the third with his opening 6000 against Tony Burgess.
Down to skipper Higgins to finish it off, but he was off after a couple of thousand and another 6000 break from new Swan skipper Doug Mahy (back on his old stomping ground) took the game to a decider.
I had a good view of this one as I was scoring it and so can report that Phil Oakley was extremely fortunate to keep his opening 3000 break when he sent his cue ball into the left 30 where it twirled round a bit, came out, hit the side cushion and the back one before just kissing the object ball sitting behind the hole. Phil then had another go at the break before Gary Ridley eventually got it back when 5000 down with 2 minutes left.
As usual with the Swan it was a most convivial evening!
Save bar billiards - ban the split/Oxford or play off the spot otherwise this game will get incredibly boring (particularly for scorers).
Chris Reeves was the new captain for the Duke's first game against Tony Jenner's Windmill team. The Duke raced into a 3-0 lead with Chris and Tupps both knocking in around 10k and me knocking in 17k. Steve Ayelmore saved some blushes winning the 4th against our very own Chubbster. As the Windmill had only 4 players the final score was 4-1.
