Julian Plaza.jpgWorkington Cons have extended their lead in Division One of the Window Outlet Cockermouth and District Snooker League.

They collected a maximum with a 6-0 home victory against Division Two’s Workington Legion.

In a one-sided affair Cons’ Julian Plaza top-scored with a break of 47 (pictured) in his defeat of Louise Evans as Mike Park, Richard McCarthy, Alan Moore and Stuart Shepherd also won for the top tier leaders.

Workington Legion still sit at the foot of the Division Two table.

Workington Vets Club produced the biggest shock of the week when they defeated Division One title challengers Workington Golf Club 5-1 away from home.

The golfers looked on course for a routine victory as Rob Sim won the first frame and Bryan Walker led frame two thanks to a break of 36.

However, a fine comeback from Neil Henderson pinched the game to set-up a Vets Club charge.

Even though the Golf Club’s Mark Brasted made a contribution of 32 in the next a 37 clearance by Kevin Basnett took the Vets 2-1 up.

Paul Graham and Stuart Ryan soon made it 4-1 but it was Steve Garroway who rounded the match of nicely with a break of 32 in an impressive team performance.

The Golf Club sit third in Division One and Vets climb to the top of Division Two.

Division One’s second-placed Station Road B were held to a 3-3 away draw against Workington’s United Club.

A Richard Nelson win put the United Club one up, however a break of 30 from Station B’s Simon Frazer pulled it back to 1-1.

United Captain Andrew Mitchelhill made a break of 33 to put him team back in the lead but with Mark Tunstall and Peter O’Hagan winning the next two Station B were in the lead at 3-2.

Looking for the victory Shaun Ayre stepped up for Station B but with other ideas it was United’s Dave Chapman who ground out a win to record a very satisfying draw. United Club remain third in Division Two.

Last week’s Division Two leaders Flimby Social went down 4-2 at home to Division One’s Seaton Legion but in a match that the Social side trailed 3-0 the final score-line proved to be less disastrous than it could have been.

The highlight of the match came in the very first frame as in needing the last four balls Legion’s Ryan Mandale produced a fine 22 clearance to knock Flimby’s Kevin Kirkham off the top of the Division Two leading player standings.

Flimby drop down into a Division Two second place with Seaton still at the bottom of the Division One table.

Finally, Division One’s Station Road A presided over Division Two’s Sun Inn 4-2 in another game that saw the match winners lead 3-0.

The best performance of the evening came from Sun Inn’s Ben Irving as a break of 35 enabled the Aspatria cueist to take the last frame of match against Peter Collins.

Station A stay fifth in Division One and the Sun Inn also remain unmoved in a Division Two fourth place.
