THIS WEEK it was the Bob McCartin Six Red Cup taking the spotlight again with the second round of group stage matches.
The most exciting match was undoubtedly at PJ'z Ripley where their No 1 team fought back from 0-3 down to defeat visitors Jaxx Q Club Belper No 1 4-3 in an outstanding night's snooker.

Kevin Holmes with a 34 break  and Paul Ogden with a 25 saw the visitors off to a flying start and the same two players also won their doubles match which was brought forward while waiting for the other singles players to arrive.

From thereon though the home side rallied in fine style with Ben Monk and 81-year-old John Smith scoring a combined effort of 25 in their scotch doubles along the way.

Both teams look set to qualify in Group A after this result but Edgefold Club made up ground with a 7-0 win over PJ'z Ripley No 2 and any victory in their last group match against the PJ'z No 1 team might yet be enough to see them through too as one of the best third placed teams.

Belper Strutt Club No 1 retained pole position in Group B with a 5-2 win over their No 2 team while Bolehill Institute No 1 moved ahead of Jaxx Q Club Belper No 2 into second place, courtesy of a win by the same scoreline.

The local derby match at Bolehill in Group C saw an emphatic success for the No 2 team whose 6-1 verdict over the No 3 outfit surely all but guarantees them a place in the quarter finals.

Matlock Golf Club are hot on their heels after a 5-2 win over Matlock Club, Chris Parker once again finding the backs of the pockets with breaks of 33 and 29 in his singles match. Pretty good going for a six reds frame!!
