Gary 7650 David 2290 David Started brightly mastering the break and putting a decent score on the board. Gary came back with his first break, but did not quite match Davids start. Davids second visit was not as fruitful and leaving the one up short handed Gary the opportunity to stride ahead, which he did. A good game with both players playing well.
Robin 3410 Steve 1020 Robin broke first and did not really have a flying start so Steve on his first visit pushed ahead. Robins second visit was better and he strung together a break to jump into the lead. Steve then got a bit unlucky with balls tied up and Robin claimed the second game.
Bill 2420 Malcolm 2000 Malcolm mastered the break but let Bill in early and he managed to get his nose in front. The balls then got tied up a little and the lead went from on player to the other. It was the late stage of the game when Bill had control of the table that won this one as Malcolm could only watch as he picked the balls of to clear the table.
Trevor 1460 Kelly 1620 Trevor broke twice and then let Kelly in and she took advantage of the early mistake. The game then got a bit tactical with the balls making their way to the bottom of the table and as much as he tried Trevor simply could not get the break back. Kelly kept her head and chose her shot well to clear the table with the 100 pocket with the last ball ensuring the point was hers.
Robin (4 player rule) 4390 Jason 1500 No even break gave Jason an opportunity to put a big score on the board, however, though a bright beginning he simply could not prevent Robin from getting the break back and to put commanding score on the board. Jason had little luck with getting the break back for himself and Robin secured the final game with a steady game.
A pleasant evening that saw both teams arriving in the same vehicle and actually the journey home was good humored despite the result. A big thanks to The Guvnor of the Stout House for providing a decent platter of sarnies.
