D&G SENIORS’ SNOOKER ASSOC Results, Monday, January 7:
Albert A 3 Bluebell A 1; Albert C 2 Locharbriggs A 2; Annan Ex 1 Annan Ex A 3; Bluebell 2 Albert B 2; Locharbriggs B 3 Albert Club 1; Locharbriggs D 0 Sands Gold 4; Sands Silver 3 Locharbriggs C 1.
Monday night saw the end of the first half of this season with the league table throwing up no great surprises. Sands Gold continue to dominate and indeed extend their lead to six points with their 4-0 drubbing of Locharbriggs D whilst nearest rivals Locharbriggs A had to settle for a 2-2 away draw against Albert C.
Elsewhere, a damaging away defeat for the Bluebell A side to Albert A does nothing to aid their claim of being Annan’s premier team as a win for the Annan Ex A side brings them level on 19 points each.
As far as high breaks go Gold’s Paul Harkness has the honour with a very well taken 43 with several other players achieving decent enough scores but in the modest 20+ bracket.
Even at this stage of proceedings the writing is on the wall in terms of Gold’s relentless pursuit of continued glory. The fascination perhaps is not in the chase of them but the mini league developing beneath them as teams vie to claim the runners up spot – this race is wide open!
