Al­bert A draw with Gold

Dumfries & Galloway Standard - - HARDROCK CHALLENGE -

Mon­day night saw league ac­tion con­tinue in the se­niors’snooker and there was ac­tion aplenty and the odd sur­prise re­sult.

Scores as fol­lows: Al­bert A 2 Sands Gold 2; Al­bert C 1 Al­bert Club 3; An­nan Ex Club 2 Lochar­briggs D 2; Blue­bell 2 Lochar­briggs B 2; Lochar­briggs C 0 Blue­bell A 4; Sands Auto 0 An­nan Ex A 4; Sands Sil­ver 3 Al­bert B 1.

Sur­prise of the week was the gutsy draw achieved by Al­bert A against cur­rent league cham­pi­ons Sands Gold, who lost their per­fect record and proved they are all too hu­man.

Whether any team can mount a sus­tained chal­lenge to their dom­i­nance this sea­son re­mains to be seen but this re­sult will have been noted with in­ter­est by all the league teams.

He­roes for Al­bert A were An­drew Edgar and Jim O’ Don­nell who de­serve credit for top­pling Mike Wat­son and Paul Jame­son for Gold.

In other re­sults and clos­ing the gap to a mere point on level games were Blue­bell A, who trounced Lochar­briggs C 4-0 and An­nan Ex A, win­ning by the same score against a strug­gling Sands Auto side.

Also wor­thy of men­tion is the Al­bert Club team who are qui­etly go­ing about their busi­ness and get­ting de­cent re­turns for their ef­forts.

Mon­day night saw them vic­to­ri­ous again by the mar­gin of 3-1 against the newly formed Al­bert C side. With a game in hand, they could po­ten­tially join Gold at the top in com­ing weeks.

The An­nan Ex club and the Blue­bell had to set­tle for home draws with visi­tors Lochar­briggs B and D re­spec­tively happy to se­cure an away point.

Al­though Al­bert A have taken the shine off Gold, the com­ing weeks will de­ter­mine which team if any can demon­strate the con­sis­tency needed to suc­ceed in this league.
