Savoy have opened up a three point gap at the top of the Premier League after a 4-1 victory away to Canton Libs Z gave them their 13th league win a row, with Tom Davie producing the highlight of the match with a 64 break. Senghenydd move into second place after matching that result at Rumney British Legion, with Mike Boucher equalling Tom’s 64 break, but Canton Libs B produced the performance of the week to defeat Taff’s Well B 4-1 to move into second place in Division One.

The other stand-out result of the week was a 5-0 win for Mackintosh against Division One leaders Cathays Cons, whose lead over Canton Libs B has been cut in half to five points.

Cuesaders are in fourth place after a 3-2 victory over Park Club, with Graham Jenkins once again winning and recording a 44 break, whilst Taff’s Well A won 3-2 against Mackies Lost Boys.

    Senghenydd 3 v 2 Taff’s Well A
    Mackies Lost Boys 0 v 5 Cuesaders
    Park Club 0 v 5 Canton Libs A

    The top five teams in the Premier League all recorded excellent wins this week to leave the race for the title too close to call, as we enter the second half of the season.

    Savoy took advantage of a 4-man Mackintosh side to win 4-1, with wins for Mark Bennett, Ryan Rowlands and Matthew Laver once again providing the platform for another victory.

    They are joined on 55 points at the top by Taff’s Well B, who backed up their derby win last week with a 5-0 defeat of Rumney British Legion to keep up the pressure on the Barry side.

    Senghenydd stay in third after they won a close match 3-2 against Taff’s Well A, who have now lost five matches by the odd frame so far this season.

    Cuesaders and Canton Libs A both recorded 5-0 wins against Mackies Lost Boys and Park Club respectively to make the gap between the top five now only 5 points.

    It’s not so close at the top of Division One though as Cathays Cons won 4-1 against third-placed Canton Libs B, which coupled with a bye week for Canton Libs Z, means the gap at the top is now 8 points.

Darren Gill 45 (Cathays Cons)

Savoy are out on their own at the top of the Premier League after a 3-2 win against Canton Libs B gave them their 11th straight victory, to edge one point clear of Taff’s Well B who defeated Taff’s Well A 3-2 in a closely-fought derby.

Cuesaders backed up their excellent victory against Taff’s Well B last week to win 3-2 at Senghenydd, who now slip to third place. The Llandaff side are joined in 4th place by Canton Libs A who whitewashed Mackies Lost Boys 5-0 to get back to winning ways.

Canton Libs Z took advantage of a four-man Mack side to win 3-2, but they’ve lost ground on the Division One leaders Cathays Cons who beat Rumney British Legion 5-0 to extend their lead to three points in the race for promotion.

The closeness of the league this year is evident as we reach the halfway stage with everyone now having played 12 matches. There are only seven points separating the top six teams in the Premier League, and despite recent defeats last year’s top two Canton Libs A and Mackintosh are not out of the running and will be looking to put a winning run together to close the gap on the leaders. Taff’s Well A have it all to do to avoid finishing bottom and being relegated to Division One, but they have the players to put a run together that will close the gap on

Breaks

Ryan Rowlands 63 (Savoy)

Senghenydd are back on top of the Premier League after a superb 3-2 win away at Canton Libs A. Wins for John-Henry Griffiths, Dan Bridle and Mike Boucher put them three up, but Canton managed to clinch the final two frames. However, it wasn’t enough for the champions who have now lost four league matches in a row to slip to sixth in the table. The match was also notable as Dan Bridle inflicted the first defeat in two years on the league’s outstanding player Kishan Hirani.

Senghenydd move above Taff’s Well B after a shock 4-1 defeat at Cuesaders, who won the first three very close frames to close the gap on the sides above them, and move within six points of top spot. Taff’ Well’s only frame was won by Kevin Brown who now moves level with Kishan at the top of the individual rankings.

Senghenydd are joined at the top by Savoy who won 3-2 at Rumney British Legion, with a 63 break from Ryan Rowlands being the highlight, whilst Taff’s Well A won by the same scoreline at home to Cathays Cons.

Cathays remain top of Division One, but there are now only three points separating the top three sides after a close 3-2 win for Canton Libs B against neighbours Canton Libs Z, whilst at the bottom Park Club registered their first win of the season after beating Mackies Lost Boys 4-1 at home.

Happy Christmas!

The Cardiff & District Snooker League would like to wish you all a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year, and look forward to resuming the league on Thursday 4th January.
