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!
