GRAHAM JONES put the Golf Club ahead in the opener
TWO thrilling semi finals of the Bob McCartin Six Red Cup each went down to the wire and the final will be contested by Matlock Golf Club and Crich Comrades later in the season.
Crich were staring down the barrel of a 3-1 deficit at home to Bolehill No 1 despite Nick Berry fluking the black in the opener after it jawed in one baulk pocket before running along the cushion into the opposite bag.
But Simon Zoppi (22 break), Ian Birks (on the black) and Ricki Slack put the visitors in the ascendancy soon afterwards.
However, the Tramwaymen were not to be denied and took all three scotch doubles legs with Nick Berry, Ade Smith and Ady Lowe producing some precision snooker in the tightest of situations.
Matlock Golf Club also trailed before taking the last two scotch doubles legs to prevail.
Graham Jones and Paul Roe had them 2-0 up before Paul Jarrett and Wayne Shooter edged two tight battles to level matters.
Steve Bullock and Mark Newby with a 41-14 verdict in the opening pairs frame had turned things on their head but it quickly swung back the other way again with Roe combining with firstly Jones and then Ian McKay to secure a fantastic triumph.
Bob McCartin Six Red Cup semi finals: Crich Comrades 4, Bolehill Institute No 1 3; Belper Strutt Club 3, Matlock Golf Club 4.
Breaks: S Zoppi 22.
