KEVIN MUNNELLY ... successful night for BOLEHILL No 2
THE battle for local pride went down to the black ball in the fifth and final frame as Crich Comrades No 1 and No 2  teams engaged battle in the quarter finals of the Captains Cup team aggregate competition.
Dale Shaw shaded a black ball decider in the opener for the second team before Paul Trevett ground out a hard fought 56-43 margin to edge his team ahead pointswise.
Ady Lowe, enjoying a successful season to date, countered with a 59-36 verdict in frame three but the cagey John Smith's forty point success in the next had the No 1 team 27 points ahead going into the remaining doubles leg.
However the Lowes, Ady and Jack, teamed up to great effect and with just the black remaining, they had a seven point lead which ultimately became fourteen to secure an unlikely victory against the current holders.

Belper Strutt Club, fresh from six red triumph, couldnt repeat the feat in this event as Bolehill No 2 produced one of their best performances of the season to run out 319-245 winners.
Keith Robertson and Kevin Munnelly won each of their singles and doubles legs whilst only Wayne Shooter could respond for the vanquished.

Matlock Golf Club scored their second win at Bolehill No 1 in the space of a fortnight after another tight battle, Graham Jones and Les Mooney taking the concluding doubles leg 60-30 to decide the issue after each had been triumphant in their singles, Graham notching runs of 32 and 23.
Ricki Slack had started a mini-fightback with a 67-41 success in frame three to stem the tide.

Edgefold Club make up the semi final line-up after defeating Alfreton Palmer Morewood 265-216. Tom Broughton put the hosts in front early doors but it was one-way traffic thereafter as Josh Lee and Sam Lavelle were victorious in each of their singles and doubles frames.
