NEWPORT (Shropshire): Three of the Shakespeare B ladies league pool players have reached the last six of the Fusion Hair and Beauty Newport Women’s Pool Open.

Landlady Hazel Ford-Lewis trounced Hinstock newcomer Helen Atkins in three straight frames at a packed Upper Bar venue and she was joined in the last six by Kim Rigby and Sam Stewart-Frost. Rigby dropped just one frame against the King’s Head’s Louise Anyon and Stewart-Frost won a tight contest by a similar margin against Lucy Hennessey.

The hotly-tipped Irene Whittington also dropped one frame on her way to beating Margaret O’Brien and a potentially nail-biting last six draw alongside earlier qualifiers, Lyn Woodhouse and Hannah Evans.

In the 2010 Carling Newport Pool Open, Ed Keenan made short measure of overcoming an out-of-sorts Marc Simpson in a teatime clash at the King’s Head. Kim Rigby also made sure that she was the only female left in the last 18 of the main competition, when she stunned the New Inn’s Mike Matthews in five frames.

Ben Longstaff and Neil Perkins eased into the quarterfinals of the Worthington’s Newport Doubles Open with a 3-0 victory over Hazel Ford-Lewis and Hannah Evans, but Ford-Lewis had her chance to level the match on the black in the second frame.

Players must settle all tournament entry fees now. Failure to pay all outstanding entry fees will mean immediate expulsion from the tournament. The draw for the next round of all three competitions will be published in next week’s paper and was made last night (Thursday).
