Mark Suitor.jpgWindow Outlet Cockermouth and District Snooker league Division One leaders, Workington Cons, were out of action last week.

That gave second-placed current champions, Station Road B a chance to close the gap.

However, a derby game against fellow club mates Station Road A was always going to be difficult to predict with the match ending in a competitive 3-3 draw.

The early charge came from the A team in the shape of a 2-0 lead with wins from Tom Thompson and John Teasdale, however this was soon brought to a halt with a frame winning break of 31 from the B team’s Mark Tunstall.

Peter O’Hagan tied the contest up at 2-2 but with Peter Collins taking the next he gave the A team a sniff of a win. This hope proved to be short-lived nevertheless as B team captain Stephen O’Hagan won the last convincingly to close the gap at the top of the table to two points.

Station Road A keep their fifth place in Division One.

Third in Division One, Workington Golf Club were in confident mood as they beat Division Two favourites, Flimby Social 4-2 away.

With the first two frames shared Bryan Walker took the golfers 2-1 ahead with a nicely constructed break of 45. Another two frames were again split but at 3-2 Flimby looked likely to nick the draw.

The golf club’s Mark Carruthers had other ideas and with a grinding performance he ensured the match win with a victory over Mike Walker. Flimby stay top of Division Two.

The United Club recorded their first win of the season in emphatic fashion with a 5-1 home win against Workington’s Vets Club.

In the most surprising scoreline of the week United’s Mark Suitor (pictured) produced the stand out performance of the week in defeating former county champion, Kevin Basnett in the sixth frame of the match.

Vets stay second in Division Two with United Club moving up one place, also in Division Two, to third.

Maryport Social kept their fourth place in Division One with a 4-2 home win against Aspatria’s Sun Inn.

At 2-2 the fixture was well balanced but it was Paul Lister and Andrew Henderson who eventually pushed Social over the winning line for their third win in eight games. The Sun Inn remain bottom of Division Two.

Finally, Seaton Legion also delivered their first win of the season with a 5-1 home victory against Division Two’s Workington Legion.

The Division One outfit produced some assured performances from Karl Newton, Mike Dawson, Allan Stephenson, Mark Tatton, and Alan Cannan in a confidence-boosting win.

Workington Legion’s only victory came from Louise Evans in her fifth frame win over Paul Smith.
