RYAN TAYLOR kept his team in the huint at Bolehill No 2
ALFRETON Palmer Morewood No 2 kept alive their title hopes with a 3-2 victory at Bolehill No 2 leaving them five points adrift of leaders Edgefold No 1 with a game in hand.
But things had not looked so rosy earlier in the evening as Ian Peacock and Mick Bunting were in excellent nick for the hosts, securing a 2-0 lead with some confident potting.
Ryan Taylor, with his eighth win in ten outings, took a hard fought third frame 44-35 to keep his side in the hunt and a black ball win for John Smith levelled matters in the next.
And Smith teamed up with brother Derek in the deciding doubles leg to take the spoils with a 50-37 scoreline.
Alfreton No 1 were edged out 3-2 by the aforementioned league leaders Edgefold No 1 with Andy Russell and Rob Muxlow in high scoring mood while Jamie Rowland stretched his unbeaten run to ten league matches for the Amber Valley cuemen.
Also tasting success by the minimum margin were Edgefold No 2 thanks to Rob Dickin and Sam Lavelle who took each of their singles and doubles legs. Mick Mackfall top scored for the vanquished as he opened his league account for the season.
Belper Strutt Club continued their uprising with a 4-1 defeat of Matlock Golf Club with supersub Justin Weller instrumental in some of their best play.

JUSTIN WELLER partnered Steve Bullock to success in the doubles
LAST SEASONS champs Belper Strutt Club pulled off their second successive Joinery Joint League win over title contenders with a 3-2 victory at Edgefold Matlock No 1, who nevertheless remain two points clear a the summit, albeit having played an extra game more than their rivals.
Rob Muxlow, with a narrow 59-51 success and then Duncan Harwood with a more comfortable margin had put the home team 2-0 up and things were seemingly set fair for another satisfactory outcome for the Matlock cuemen.
But a black-ball win for Mark Newby was quickly followed by an emphatic success from skipper Steve Bullock and then the visiting captain teamed up with Justin Weller to take the decisive doubles leg.

Matlock Golf Club surged into second place with a 5-0 whitewash of Edgefold No 2 as Chesterfield League seniors champ Paul Roe went to the head of the highest breaks table with his run of 46 in the opener.

Bolehill Institute No 1 entertained Alfreton Palmer Morewood No 1 and both remain well in contention after the hosts sneaked a 3-2 verdict.
Ricki Slack and Ian Birks took the deciding pairs frame after Simon Mays had top scored for the Amber Valley side.

And Bolehill No 2, despite being several players short, edged a 3-2 cliffhanger at Matlock Club. Keith Robertson top scored and then took the doubles with Mick Bunting after Paul Bryan had equalised.
