PACE-SETTING PAIR SHOW NO SIGNS OF LETTING UP

THE action hotted up in B Division this week with just one point now separating runaway pair Matlock Golf Club and Jaxx Q Club No 1 of Belper after each gained impressive victories.
The Golf Club defeated PJ'z No 2 of Ripley 4-1 with Graham Jones scoring a century haul of points and Chris Parker notching breaks of 36 and 20 after Gary Day had put the visitors ahead early doors.

Their closest rivals went one better however by defeating neighbours Belper Strutt Club No 2 5-0. Wade Morley made an impressive debut, top scoring while Steve Robinson contributed a useful 27 break in his win.

The section's other match saw a second successive victory for the No 2 team from Jaxx Q Club who edged out Bolehill Institute No 3 3-2. Andy Hayes and John Williams were the main architects, winning both their singles and doubles frames while Gary Woodward top scored for the home side.

The gap narrowed between the second and third placed teams in A Division as Edgefold Club of Matlock prevailed 3-2 at Bolehill Institute No 1.

Martyn Taylor, with a 39 break, and Rob Muxlow won both frames they contested while Simon Zoppi was top points scorer for the hosts.

PJ'z Ripley No 1 capitalised on that result by winning 4-1 at Matlock Club to stretch their lead at the top to four points. Ben Monk and Andrew Gratton had breaks of 33 and 28 respectively after Keith Manlove had put the hosts ahead in the opener with a black ball victory over John Smith.

The other match was a battle of the play-off hopefuls which saw Belper Strutt Club No 1 triumph 3-2 over Bolehill Institute No 2.

Steve Bullock won both his frames for the hosts, the singles after his opponent had gone in off the final black, whilst Keith Robertson continued his good run for the visitors, winning his ninth frame in ten starts in convincing fashion.
