Breaks

Jason Veal 39 (RBL Warriors)
Kevin Brown 36 (Taff’s Well)

Canton Libs remain unbeaten after a 3-2 win away to Cuesaders Z moved them into fourth place in the Premier League with a game in hand on those teams above them. Wins for James Facey and Declan O’Callaghan gave them an early lead before Dave Reynolds beat Rory Wigmore to make it 2-1. Paul Chichester then levelled things with a win over Ed Topham, but a lack of a fifth player for Cuesaders gave the win to James Wigmore’s side.

Fairwater Cons extended their lead at the top of the table with a closely-fought 3-2 win over Trecenydd Snooker, with Ben Griffiths winning the opener to maintain his perfect record at the top of the individual rankings, followed by victory for Terry Garland to make it 2-0. An unassailable 3-0 lead looked likely when Steffan Davies was 27 up on the yellow against Mike Pardoe, but a dramatic finish saw Davies send the white in-off on the black giving Trecenydd a way back into the match. Shaun O’Connell then beat Michelle Emery to seal the win before Chris Garwood cleared the colours to win the last and make it 3-2 to Fairwater.

The result of the week took place at Cathays Cons who registered a resounding 4-1 win over struggling Savoy to move into third. The Barry side had a strong line-up with two-time Cardiff Open Singles winner Ryan Rowlands opening, but in-form Dave Earls gave his side the perfect start with a win on the colours,

Mackintosh Sports Close the Gap

Week 3 results

Mackintosh Sports 5 v 0 Cathays Cons
Taff’s Well A 4 v 1 RBL Warriors
Canton Libs 3 v 2 Mackintosh Snooker
Fairwater Cons 3 v 2 Cuesaders Z
Trecenydd Snooker 3 v 2 Savoy
Rumney British Legion v Bye

Mackintosh Sports closed the gap on Fairwater Cons at the top of the Premier League this week with a 5-0 win at home to in-form Cathays Cons. Darren Gill’s side had gone into the match unbeaten after victories in their first two games, but the very strong opening duo of Jason Hewett and Alan Hurley gave Mackintosh a 2-0 lead before wins for Clive Marsh, Ronnie Allen and Brian Rees sealed an emphatic win for last season’s runners-up.

Fairwater are one point clear in first place after their maintained their unbeaten start to the season but they were pushed all the way by newly-amalgamated Cuesaders Z, who produced the individual highlight of the week with a superb win for Ryan Bowgen against Alan Morgan to take the first frame, and it looked like they might double their lead when Paul Chichester opened up a lead on Ben Griffiths, but last year’s Cardiff Handicap Singles champion fought back to clinch the frame on the pink and level proceedings at 1-1. Steffan Davies then made it 2-1 before Cuesaders Z regained parity with a win for captain Graeme Prance over Shaun O’Connell to take the match to a decider, which was comfortably won by Steve Flanagan to give his side a hard-fought 3-2 win.

Canton Libs made it back-to-back wins to move them up to fourth in the table with a 3-2 win against Mackintosh Snooker with wins for Luke Haines, Declan O’Callaghan and James Wigmore, whilst Trecenydd Snooker beat Savoy by the same scoreline. Taff’s Well registered their
