THE action hotted up in A Division this week as last years champs PJ'z No 1 of Ripley entertained current leaders Bolehill Institute No 2 and earned a 3-2 success to go just a point behind.

Remarkably, all three frames won by the home team ended in century points hauls as Ben Monk compiled four breaks of over 20 plus a 53 while Andrew Gratton contributed 46, 23, and 20 as they won both their singles and doubles matches.
Keith Robertson maintained his unbeaten run for Bolehill with a sixth straight win.

Bolehill No 1 also moved just behind the leaders with a 5-0 win over Belper Strutt Club No 1. Andrew Brough notched a 27 to win from thirty adrift against Steve Bullock while Colin Marchington cleared up with 22 to win his frame.

The Edgefold Club beat neighbours Matlock Club 4-1 with Martyn Taylor scoring breaks of 39 and 28 in winning his singles and doubles matches.

In B Division, leaders Matlock Golf Club had a narrow escape with a 3-2 victory at Bolehill No 3. It might have been different as Ian Cresswell rattled the final black in the jaws of the pocket against Nick Kay before later partnering Martin Forster to a fine win over Graham Jones and Chris Parker in the concluding doubles frame.

The battle of the teams from Jaxx Q Club of Belper was won 3-2 by the No 1 outfit for whom Steve Robinson knocked in a classy 39 break though Andy Hayes sparkled on his debut for the No 2 team by winning both his singles and doubles frames.

In the other match, Belper Strutt Club No 2 triumphed 3-2 over PJ'z No 2, taking the first three frames to decide the issue.

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