Canton Libs A took a huge step towards the Premier League title this week after a 3-2 victory over Savoy A, which extended their lead at the top of the table to 4 points after Taff’s Well B were defeated by the same scoreline at home to Mackintosh. With only two matches remaining, two victories should be enough to secure the title, whilst the runner-up spot will go all the way with Mackintosh only one point behind Taff’s Well B.
There were close 3-2 victories for Senghenydd away to Savoy B and for Canton Libs B over Cathays Cons. Canton Libs Z won 4-1 at Park Club and Rumney British Legion won 3-2 at Cuesaders, whilst there were again a number of 40+ breaks including Kishan Hirani’s 13th league break of the season.
Malcolm Keenor Plate Match 5 results –
Canton Libs Z lost to Savoy B +35 pts
Savoy A lost to Senghenydd +293 pts
Canton Libs B beat South Wales Snooker +116 pts
The final of the Malcolm Keenor Plate will be between Canton Libs B and Senghenydd after they finished the fifth round of group matches with comfortable victories over South Wales Snooker and Savoy A respectively.
Canton’s win means they are unbeaten at the end of the round-robin format and finish top with 10 points. Only a very improbable defeat for Senghenydd would’ve denied them the other place and they secured a straightforward victory against an understrength Savoy line-up.
The final will take place on Thursday 18th May at Taff’s Well.
The dates for the finals of the team and individual tournaments are now online and will take place from May 11th until June 1st.
The provisional venues for each competition are detailed and they will take place at either Taff’s Well or Canton Libs.
