Mackintosh continued their relentless form this week with a 5-0 whitewash of in-form Rumney British Legion to register their 9th win in a row and extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points over Savoy, who gained a hard-fought 3-2 win at Trecenydd.

However, the title may not be a two-horse race as Taff’s Well B won 5-0 at an under-strength Senghenydd to close the gap on the champions to 4 points, and stay within striking range of Mackintosh. The next two weeks look like being pivotal in determining the destiny of the league trophy, as Mackintosh face both of their title rivals in what should be an exciting and tense couple of matches.

Cuesaders made it back-to-back victories with a 3-2 win over Cathays Cons, whilst in Division One Canton Libs B missed the opportunity to take advantage of Canton Libs Z’s bye week after losing 3-2 at home to Fairwater Cons, and Taff’s Well A beat Mackies Lost Boys 4-1.

Savoy bounced back from their shock defeat to Taff’s Well A to record an impressive 5-0 win over Division One leaders Canton Libs B. The outstanding trio of Mark Bennett, Ryan Rowlands and Sam Thomas set the foundations for the victory, with the latter registering a fine 71 break.

The champions have cut Mackintosh’s lead at the top to 3 points as Ronnie Allen’s side won 4-1 at home to Senghenydd, with Jason Hewitt maintaining his outstanding for to secure his 14th win from 15 league matches so far this season. With Savoy’s game-in-hand not coming until the last game of the season, their match at the end of this month is beginning to look like a colossal encounter.

Taff’s Well B stayed within touching distance of the top two with a 4-1 win over Trecenydd Snooker, with Dylan Emery showing why he’s one of the brightest talents in the country with a 58 break when a century looked likely. The CDSA would like to wish Dylan well when he participates in the European Championships in Israel.

Rumney British Legion maintained their excellent form with a 4-1 victory against Mackies Lost Boys to move up to fourth place in Division One, with Kyle Patterson winning again to move into the individual rankings list.
