NEWPORT LEGION SIDES HOLD SWAY AFTER
WEEK THREE OF NEWPORT POOL LEAGUE

NEWPORT (Shropshire): Only NRBL A and B and LSC at the Tav maintained their 100% unbeaten starts to the 2012/2013 Newport & District Pool League after the third Wednesday of league matches.

NRBL A trounced the Royal Navy Club to stay in front of NRBL B on frame difference and LSC won a hard-fought encounter against the Shakespeare A. Mick Beech, Wayne Dodd, Antony Heathcote and Andy Miles won the all-important singles racks for the league champions to maintain their lead by just one frame over the B team.

LSC were made to work until nearly 11pm for a 2-4 win at the Shakespeare. Greg Heathcote put them into the lead, only for Dave Marshall to utilise a useful double to redress the balance. Ben Longstaff benefited from an Andy Potter foul to make it 1-2 and Paul Trevor slogged it out against Ross Richards-Jones to make it 1-3. Honours were shared in two marathon doubles matches with the outcome of the match going to the final black.

The upset of the night occurred in the game between Tavern A and Shakespeare B. The away side romped into a 0-3 lead courtesy of Darren Lowe, Russ Woodhouse and Jess Hilditch and the banans skin was completed when Kim Rigby stunned Greg Quinn. Honours were shared in the doubles frames but it was a humiliating defeat for the home side.

Elsewhere, there were wins for Junction A, Horns B, the Barley Mow Hotel and draws in the matches between the Wheatsheaf and Sutherland Arms and the Navigation and former league leaders, the King’s Head A.

Please note that team registration and league fees of £50 must be paid by the end of November. Failure to do so will mean points will not be added to league tables after this date.
