The final of the Malcolm Keenor Trophy will be between Trecenydd Snooker and Savoy after a night of drama in both competitions.

Trecenydd travelled to Mackintosh (minus their star player Dylan Emery) with a slender 3-2 lead but they quickly wrapped up the tie after Andrew West’s win over Jason Hewitt was followed up by wins for Chris Garwood and Jamie Foster against Ronnie Allen and Clive Marsh respectively.

Their opponents in the final will be Savoy after a repeat of last year’s final against Taff’s Well went to a playoff frame, although Tom Cross’s side looked favourites for the tie after Nick Jones inflicted a rare defeat on Sam Thomas, which included a well-crafted 52 break. Savoy hit back though through captain Colin Lane who beat Kevin Brown, but the advantage was restored when Brian Rees defeated Kyle Patterson. That meant Taff’s Well were 5-3 ahead, but Mark Bennett kept Savoy in the match albeit thanks to a fluke on the blue against Rob Hayes. The next was a close affair as Ryan Rowlands won a tense, black-ball frame to overcome James Llewellyn and take the match to a playoff. Both captains made their pick and a repeat of the opening frame pitted Nick Jones against Sam Thomas. Jones started strongly, but Thomas hit back to take the frame to the colours and eventually sealed the win

Breaks

Sam Thomas 67 (Savoy)

Dylan Emery 43 (Trecenydd Snooker)

Chris Garwood 43 (Trecenydd Snooker)

The semi-final first legs of the Malcolm Keenor Trophy and Plate were all very close affairs that ended up being decided by the odd frame 3-2.

Trecenydd Snooker and Taff’s Well hold the advantage in the Trophy after wins at home to Mackintosh and Savoy respectively.

Trecenydd started well with Dylan Emery (43 break) beating Khurram Khan, before Alan Hurley levelled things up at 1-1. Clive Marsh then put the visitors 2-1 ahead, but a win for Mike Pardoe against Simon Parker took the match to a decider, with Tony Williams producing an excellent performance to beat in-form Jason Hewitt to win the match 3-2.

In the other semi-final there was a repeat of last year’s final as Taff’s Well were up against Savoy, and the draw favoured the Barry side as Sam Thomas and Mark Bennett were drawn out first. Thomas quickly overcame Nick Jones in the opener thanks to a 67 break which featured some outstanding potting, and then Bennett made it 2-0 with victory over Kevin Brown. The third frame looked like being the pivotal one of the evening and so it proved as Rob Hayes produced a fine performance to beat Alfie Davies to keep his side in the match. Brian Rees then won the fourth against Geoff Sheppard after needing a snooker on the colours, and James Llewellyn won the fifth to seal the win, to give Taff’s Well a slim lead to take to Savoy next week.

Mark Bennett 44 (Savoy)

Darren Gill 40 (Cathays Cons)

Alan Hurley 40 (Mackintosh)

With only four league matches remaining, the top three sides in the Premier League all matched each other’s results with 3-2 wins to keep the title race wide open.

Leaders Fairwater Cons beat Cuesaders, with Ryan Bowgen winning the opener before Ben Griffiths levelled things up at one frame all. Steffan Davies and Mike Kinman both won to take the match to a decider, with Luke Pitman sealing the victory after beating Phil Ho.

Mackintosh overcame Cathays in a close match to remain only two points behind the leaders, whilst Savoy looked like they were going to gain ground after going 3-0 up against Llandaff Warriors with wins for Sam Thomas, Mark Bennett and Alfie Davies. However, wins for Ken Linsey and Nick Davies against Lee Greening and Kyle Patterson respectively ensured the top three positions stayed the same, with the prospect of an exciting finish to the season ahead.

The race for the Division One title is just as close after Senghenydd went level with Canton Libs Z at the top after beating Taff’s Well 3-2, whilst Bill Bainton’s side were defeated 3-2 at home to Trecenydd Snooker, who are only four points further back in third place with Dylan Emery once again producing the individual highlight of the week with a 63 break.

Canton Libs B moved off the foot of the Premier League table with a 4-1 win at

Cuesaders stun the Mack!

Kevin Brown 35c (Taff’s Well)

Cuesaders pulled off one of the results of the season this week with a 4-1 win over league leaders Mackintosh to hand the initiative back to their title rivals after a dramatic night in the CDSA. After Jason Hewitt’s opening win in the first frame, it looked as though a strong Mack line-up would back up last week’s astonishing whitewash of Fairwater Cons, but Mike Kinman’s side had other ideas.

Wins for Graham Jenkins and Leon Giles against Alan Hurley and Khurram Khan respectively turned the match on its head, before captain Kinman beat Clive Marsh to make sure of the win, with Graeme Prance sealing an impressive night for a talented side, who will be wondering how this was only their fifth league win of the year.

The other two title contenders Fairwater Cons and Savoy had tough matches on their hands at Taff’s Well and Trecenydd Snooker, but both managed to seal crucial 3-2 victories after some close frames and tense moments. Taff’s Well were missing captain Tom Cross and star player Brian Rees, but were able to call in quality replacements and one of those Ian Purnell won the opener against Twm Jones. The next frame was a close affair, but Luke Pitman won it on the colours against Rob Hayes to level things up at 1-1. The pivotal frame of the match saw Nick Jones taking on Steffan Davies, and a good start for the
