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.
