Closer than the score would seem to suggest: Paul's excellent win set the alarm bells ringing and Zeds captain much relieved when Barry came through in a nerve-jangling 4th frame. Andy unable to add to his opening break, he lost 2k on his second visit, giving me the balls back to add insult to injury !

Result could easily have been a lot different. First game scrappy and I only put myself far enough in front just before the bar dropped. Spud lost enough to have won his game. Very good 7.3k break and touch from Gary. Tim lost 800 opening break which could have made a difference. Jan unluckily lost a near 5k opening break when the cue ball moved just as she went to hit it and took out a peg. Paul 5k and touch. Always a good evening with the Plough.
Hassocks B 2-3 HHSC B Barry beat John Chris lost to Chris Tom lost to Paul Pete beat Ian Dom lost to Steve
In the B game , the result could have gone either way. The game between the 2 Chris’s, was in the balance. The landlord of the home team looked the likely winner before Mr Kirkham swung it for the visitors in the 2nd. In the 3rd , Tom had Mr Jobbins on the ropes, until the caffeine kicked in. Pete was the pick of the home team , with a 4K pb , which was very composed, and promised for a great future in the game. Losing captain as whole team showed great promise.😃😃😃
As Barry said it really could of gone the other way, Chris Lambe was in the driving seat, Tom was caught out with a peg giving Paul the break back. but Peter really got hold of the table with 2 2K breaks while I chased. A good win for Peter who remained composed for the whole game. Hassocks B are on the up.
The re covered table was playing well and there should be some good scores on it during the season.
