Closest contest in history of league snooker
4:00pm Thursday 22nd November 2012 in Sport
MOBBERLEY’S top two teams played out the closest contest in the Knutsford and District Amateur Snooker League’s long history this week.
One frame was decided on a black ball finish, while a further two – as well as the match aggregate – went to a re-spotted last ball.
Mobberley B’s Scott Mills, with 39, recorded a season-best break in Division One to date, but it was not enough to prevent title favourites Mobberley A edging a narrow win.
Wilmslow Cons A whitewashed Morley, John Higgins’ 108-points frame a highlight for the victors who continue to improve.
Elsewhere Shaw Heath and Wilmslow Cons B were the week’s other winners.
In Division Two, debutants Wilmslow Cons C lost at home to Shaw Heath B.
Knutsford Cons B defeated rock-bottom Mere C in the fourth lowest-scoring match of all time, while Mobberley D succumbed to their Mobberley C teammates.
On Thursday, Royal London took three points from title hopefuls Wilmslow RBL, boosted by a 30 break for Pete Hodge and in-form John O’Neill’s fine 113-points frame.
Week 10, Division One: Mobberley B 3 Mobberley A 4; Morley 0 Wilmslow Cons A 7; Shaw Heath A 6 Tatton 1; Wilmslow Cons B 4 Mere A 3. Division Two: Knutsford Cons B 6 Mere C 1; Mobberley D 1 Mobberley C 6; Mere B 3 Knutsford Cons A 4; Royal London 3 Wilmslow RBL 4; Wilmslow Cons C 2 Shaw Heath B 5.
