NO MONKEYING AROUND AS BEN TOPS BREAKS CHART

SUBSTANTIAL breaks were in shorter supply than of late at most of this week's venues - with one exception - as Ben Monk of PJ'z No 1 Ripley more than made up for it, unleashing a barrage of 30 and 29 (twice) in his singles match against Keith Manlove and then topping it off with a 71 in the concluding doubles frame, hence completing a 4-1 triumph over visitors the Matlock Club.
Only Ian Rose triumphed for the visitors with a black ball success over admirable 81-year-old ex-Derbyshire champion John Smith.

Matlock Golf Club, sporting another ex-Derbyshire champ in Graham Jones, continued their unstoppable form of late with a 5-0 win over the PJ'z No 2 team at Ripley and are now four points clear of their nearest B Division rivals Bolehill Institute No 3 who earned a 3-2 success at Jaxx Q Club No 2 of Belper. Mick Bunting's win over Adam Ballard in the fourth frame settled the issue there.

The No 1 team from Jaxx Q Club - after hitting the crossbar so far in the league - finally ran out winners 3-2 at Belper Strutt Club No 2 after taking the first three frames to ease any pressure.

There was no such luxury in the clash between early A Division pace-setters Edgefold Club and Bolehill Institute No 1 which went down to the wire before Ricki Slack and Simon Zoppi won their deciding doubles frame to secure a 3-2 win for the away team.

Bolehill No 2 also prevailed, winning 4-1 against Belper Strutt Club No 1 which featured black ball decisions for Mark Gwynne-Jones and Sean O'Sullivan.

League week 3 results: Bolehill Inst No 2 4, Belper Strutt Club No 1 1; Edgefold Club Matlock 2, Bolehill Inst No 1 3; PJ'z Club Ripley No 2 0, Matlock Golf Club 5; Belper Strutt Club No 2 2, Jaxx Q Club Belper No 1 3; Jaxx Q Club Belper No 2 2, Bolehill Inst No 3 3; PJ'z Club Ripley No 1 4, Matlock Club 1.
