AUDCO A GO TOP WITH VICTORY OVER B TEAM

 

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Audco A snatched top spot in the 2008-2009 Newport Pool League, after upstaging their young Audco B team rivals in a 5-1 rout at Bellman’s Yard.

 

The flamboyant Mick Beech maintained his stunning form with a win over Leroy Matthews, but Andy Lycett suffered a rare defeat and went in-off against Tom Sayce, as the promising youngsters levelled the match. But Paul Trevor and Colin Pink hit back with wins over Jack Jones and Luke Jones and the upset finally faded in the doubles, with the A team clinching both racks.

 

“That is the best we have played for a while,” boasted team player Paul Trevor. “We gave them what for…They are a good side, but they met us on a good day…Beechy was on fire.”

 

Lilleshall Sports Centre maintained their unbeaten start to the season, but were held to a 3-3 draw by the improving Navigation A, skipper Dave Price silencing his critics with another impressive, unbeaten display for the LSC side.

 

The Navy Club continued their climb away from the foot of the table with a 4-2 away win over Junction B. The Wheatsheaf faithful were held to a 3-3 draw by Navigation B at Gnosall, with the home side collecting their first point of the season.

 

The King’s Head maintained their push for the title by beating Shakespeare A 6-0 at Chetwynd End and Wrockwardine Wood Football Club beat the Railway Tavern, 4-2 to move into fifth place in the league.
