PAUL OGDEN ensured success for Jaxx with a black-ball victory.
THE all-Belper derby certainly provided some talking points this week but ultimately it was Jaxx Q Club who took the honours with a 3-2 win at local rivals Strutt Club No 2.
Mark Jones put in a rare appearance for the visitors and got the ball rolling with a black ball success over home captain Dave Needham.

The second frame then featured a bizarre conclusion as Kevin Holmes, leading by 11, was forced to concede it with just pink and black remaining as he was apparently running late for his train back home so the honours instead went to a rather perplexed-looking Keith Hubbold.

Jaxx edged ahead again thanks to Steve Robinson in frame three and Paul Ogden then ensured overall success on the final black against Chris Stubbs.

Dave and Chris did manage to claw back some pride for the hosts however by taking the concluding doubles frame via the third black-ball finish of the evening.

It was also local derby time at Bolehill Institute, and the No 1 team managed to avenge their defeat earlier in the season by defeating the No 2 outfit 4-1.

Ricki Slack got them off to a flyer and once Colin Marchington (20 break) and Simon Zoppi (27 and 22 breaks) had produced the goods the result was beyond doubt.

Gladiators Social Club got back on the winners rostrum by edging out the Edgefold Club 3-2 with Dave Gastrell's 41 break the highlight, although Duncan Harwood still made him pull out all the stops by taking him to a re-spotted black.

Dwayne Martin's 22 clearance to win on the black in frame four was pivotal after Richard Ferguson and Neil Parkinson had put the hosts 2-1 ahead.

Marehay Miners Welfare continued to take the league by storm, with a 4-1 home win over Matlock Club, with Jamie Woodward (24 break) top scoring in only his third match of the season.
Dave Allen earned the point for the visitors.

And in the other match, no details yet but Belper Strutt Club No 1 continued their impressive streak with a 3-2 verdict over Matlock Golf Club.
