Workington Golf Club have taken a round three lead in the Window Outlet Cockermouth and District Snooker League Division One after a 4-2 home over United Club from Division Two.

The first frame saw a good win for United’s Dave Chapman as he took out 2012 singles handicap champion Mark Cowen but with Rob Sim making a contribution of 37 to beat United’s Clive Lister the match score was level.

Taking the next Mark Brasted put his side ahead and with team-mate Phil Sorfleet also winning the fourth with a break of 26 the golfers took a 3-1 lead.

A convincing victory for Ian Fulton ensured the match win but United’s Andrew Mitchelhill offered some consolation as he claimed the final frame with a victory over golf club captain, Ken Kirkwood.

The 2011 and 2012 Division One champions Workington Cons put in confident away performance as they swept aside John Street B, 5-1. A quickly established 3-0 lead was only halted by John Street B captain Kevin Basnett as from well behind he produced a break of 34 to eventually overturn Stuart Shepherd.

This minor resurgence was soon forgotten as a brace of 26 breaks from Richard McCarthy and Alan Moore put the match win in no doubt for what looks to be a Cons side very much challenging for the top title again this season.

Maryport Social are already looking likely Division Two challengers this term as they won easily against fellow divisional opponents Senhouse Street Club, 5-1.

A frame-winning 25 break in the first by Ryan Ismay set the tone for the Maryport side and even though David Bracken levelled the match score with a victory in frame two it was fairly easy going for the Social outfit as they recorded an impressive away victory.

Sitting just behind Maryport Social courtesy of a 4-2 home win against Keswick’s Derwent Club, Aspatria’s Sun Inn are the Division Two surprise package so far this season given the fact that they picked up the wooden spoon last term.

The highlight was a break of 22 from Ben Irving in his win over Derwent’s Joe Bell.

Station Road’s Mark Robertson hit a cool break of 37 (to defeat Hayden Mostyn) in the first frame of his teams’ 4-2 home win over lower divisional opponents Workington Legion.  The four points gained in the victory sees Station Road sitting in fifth place in Division One while Legion’s two points puts them in a Division Two third spot.

Finally, Seaton Legion powered to a 5-1 home win over Maryport Labour. In the Division One versus Division Two clash Seaton’s Scott Messenger top-scored with a break of 30 and the two team’s now sit second and seventh (bottom) in their respective leagues.

John Street A and Flimby Social both had free weeks.
