IAN PEACOCK pulled BOLEHILL No 2 back from the brink
WHITWORTH Institute were cruelly denied a second win in the T & M Motors Snooker League as they fell to an agonising re-spotted black ball loss at Bolehill No 2 after leading 2-0 early doors.
Jeremy Armstrong and Geoff Brailsford, the latter opening his account in the league, scored convincing successes to pit the visitors in the ascendancy but the home side rallied strongly with Ian Peacock with a 22 clearance to decide his frame, and then Mick Bunting making it 2-2.
And the winning pair teamed up again to take the deciding black after the frame scores were locked at 59 apiece in the concluding contest.

Belper Strutt Club moved seven points clear at the head of the table after a superb 5-0 win at Edgefold with Wayne Shooter top of the scoring charts in what was a very consistent performance throughout.

Matlock Golf Club fell 3-2 at home to Crich No 2 after taking a 2-0 lead. Ian McKay was in excellent touch for the hosts with an 82pts haul but Ady Lowe, aided by an excellent 41 break, took each of his singles and doubles frames to complete the turnaround.

Alfreton Palmer Morewood scored a fine 4-1 win over Bolehill No 1 to move past those rivals with Tom Broughton's runs of 38 and 28 in an emphatic opening frame romp being the highlight. Des Smith also scored a wide margin success before the visitors finally got on the scoreboard when Ian Birks sank the pink in the doubles leg.

And Matlock Club were another team to excel, courtesy of a 4-1 defeat of Crich No 1 on their travels with Keith Manlove winning each of his singles and doubles legs to negate Ade Smith's hard fought success for the Tramwaymen in the frame three.
