SNOOKER REPORT TUESDAY 10TH MARCH 2020
PRINCESS GARDEN snooker handicap league.
For the second week in a row we have another whitewash.
St. Lawrence Miniature Rifle Club are the third team to achieve this in the last four weeks.
Reported last week that the league title was likely to be decided between Services Short Cue Wonders & St Aubin Warriors because there were only four weeks left to play and third place teams were ten points adrift, may now have been a bit premature.
With an 8-0 victory St Lawrence Miniature Rifle Club have suddenly put themselves in the running as both teams above them lost 5-3.
The gap has been reduced to just 5 points and with two more frames to play from an outstanding match, could close gap to just three points.
Leaders St Aubin Warriors actually face St Lawrence in the next match, so this result will have a strong bearing on the outcome of who might win the league.
St. Brelade Steelers 4-4 St Thomas’ Tower
Gary Boschat (14) drew with Bob Denison (21)
Sean McDonald (-7) won against Connor Davies (-28)
Steve Thomas (0) lost to Andrew Vibert (28)
Karl Le Fevre (-21) drew with Herbie Bruggraber (28)
Gary Boschat & Bob Denison shared the opening frames of the night after re-racking their first frame after the black got tied up with a bunch of reds over a pocket and neither player being able to break this pack open.
Sean McDonald won his 2 frames for the first time in the second half of the season against Connor Davies. McDonald played solidly but also took advantage of Connor missing more shots than usual.
Steve Thomas was on next against Andrew Vibert. Andrew potted some good balls in the first frame to win comfortably, Thomas should probably have won the second frame only to lose on the black.
Karl Le Fevre was on last against Herbie Bruggraber, Herbie winning the first fairly comfortably. karl came out firing on all cylinders in the final frame of the night and potted some unbelievable balls to win it by 96 points to 67.
The final score of 4-4 was just about right on the night.

In the second frame Paul got a fluky snooker which gave him 12 extra points which lead to him taking the frame.
