Savoy are back on top of the Premier League after a tense 3-2 win at leaders Mackintosh, who have suffered back-to-back defeats against their title rivals following last week’s defeat to Taff’s Well B. The match was a who’s who of the CDSA with multiple Cardiff Open champions and Player of the Year winners being drafted in by both sides who knew the importance of the match in deciding the destiny of the title.

Mackintosh were dealt an early blow with rankings leader Jason Hewitt losing to Alfie Davies to give Savoy the early advantage, but Alan Hurley soon levelled things up with victory over Sam Thomas. The third frame saw Mark Bennett beat Spencer Symmons, but Khurram Khan won the next against Ryan Rowlands to take the match to a deciding frame. It was a closely-fought encounter between Lee Greening and Mackintosh captain Ronnie Allen, but Savoy won it to move above their rivals into first place with a game-in-hand to come.

The final match between the trio of title challengers takes place in a fortnight when Taff’s Well B travel to Barry after moving to within 3 points of Savoy by defeating Rumney British Legion 4-1. The highlight of the match was an excellent break by Taff’s Well captain Tom Cross, who looked like he was going to register the second CDSA century of the season before jawing the final red on 71.

Canton Libs B are almost certainly going to win Division One after a resounding 4-1 for James Wigmore’s side against Cathays Cons moved them 13 points clear of an under-strength Canton Libs Z, who went down 3-2 away to Trecenydd, whilst Cuesaders beat Taff’s Well A 3-2 and Senghenydd broke their losing streak to register only their second win in 16 matches by defeating Fairwater Cons 3-2.
