In the Billiards League, Open champion Rob Armitage from Springwood BC, made breaks of 55 and 64 on the way to overhauling Roger Singleton after he had given the Milnsbridge man a staggering 210 start on handicap.
Armitage went on to win the frame 200-179 which, along with Bryan Almond gave their team a 2-1 win.
