THE biggest winners in this week’s matches in the Westoe Removals Sunderland Snooker League were Mill View, who saw off Pennywell Comrades A 5-0.

Steels produced a strong performance against Mill View B with Adam Smith, Jimmy Gales and Neil McLaren unstoppable in the first three frames before Carl Davis replied in the fourth for Mill View.

A fluked red led to a break by Chris Cowie in the pairs and, aided by Ray Charlton, he clinched the match 4-1.

Whitburn still lead the table although they were not at their best against Woodside A, who took the first frame through Billy Milne.

Phil Freeman levelled before Chris Grimmer restored the advantage in the third. John Smith made it all square in the fourth and joined Phil Freeman, whose 54 break dominated the pairs, as Whitburn took the match 3-2.

Green Baize took all the singles against Washington Snooker A with a strong performance, before Graham Rutland (with a 37 break) and Mark Bell took the pairs to prevent the whitewash.

Hylton A had Bob Boyce and Norman Leslie to thank for a two-frame lead before Ian Stewart and Mick Loughlin replied for Farringdon A. Harrop and Leslie won the pairs in a 3-2 success.

Seaham Knack only had three players so a 3-2 loss against Biddick A was a good result. The singles went 3-1 to Biddick before a 40 break by Gary Stockton was the deciding factor for the Knack winning the pairs.

Woodside B had a 4-1 win against Hylton B, who only had three players on the night.

Washington B started well as Gordon Dixon took the first frame away at the Railway before a nip and tuck frame went to Gary Turner to level.

Gary Bell had a 58 break as Washington went back into the lead, before a fightback in the last two frames gave Railway a surprise 3-2 result.

Glendale and Murton Officials renewed their rivalry as Craig Bell and Bob Lamb shared the first two frames. John Wiseman and John Danby took Glendale into a 3-1 advantage before Ashcroft and Banks took the pairs for Murton.
