Canton Libs A closed the gap at the top after an exciting 3-2 win against title rivals Savoy this week, with Ed Topham clinching the crucial frame after Canton had been 2-1 down. Cuesaders consolidated their position in third place with a convincing 4-1 against Cardiff Cuesports, while Taff’s Well A kept up their fine form with a 5-0 win at home to South Wales Snooker. A resurgent Park Cons won their fourth game in a row to move into sixth place, and mean that only six points separate as many teams at the top of the table. Canton Libs B had a very good 4-1 win at Rumney British Legion, whilst the leaders Taff’s Well B agreed to a request by Senghenydd to postpone their game for a later date.
There are still some fees yet to be paid for this year’s singles and doubles, anybody yet to pay by next Friday (13th November) will be scratched from the tournaments.
The deadline for the first round of the Handicap Pairs is November 29th, NOT November 9th as originally reported on the draw page, so there’s a few more weeks for playing your matches.
Further to the news earlier this week that Kishan Hirani made a century in the league match on Thursday, he followed up that feat with a 123 in the Cardiff Handicap first round match later in the evening. Can anyone recall another Cardiff League player making two competitive centuries in the same evening?
It gives Kishan his 6th CDSL century, his third above 120, and the highest recorded break in the Cardiff Handicap – follow the link for the full list of recorded breaks.
The draw for the group stages of the Handicap Cup took place last night during Taff’s Well B’s match against Rumney British Legion, and is as follows –
