12:25pm Thursday 17th October 2013 in Sport
HOTSHOTS SC of Langley eased to the top of the Premier Division with a 5-0 success over newly promoted Kingswinford RBL A. Neil Beckley, Roy Stokes, Rob Howen, Milan Krstanovic and Dave Green, who set a new high break target of 76 won for Hotshots, who took over at the top from Norton Social A, who were turned over 5-0 at home by West Midland Police.
Gavin Sloan, with breaks of 38 and 49, Mark Sheehan, Pete Gibbons, Maria Catalano and Kev Franklin won for the Police, who have shrugged off the disappointment of losing their opening match with three wins to move into second place, two points behind Hotshots.
Netherton Sports and Social, who were promoted from Division One, showed their best form with a 4-1 success at home to the talented Amblecote Inst A team, who are expected to challenge for the title. Paul Bowen won well and there were narrow victories for Steve Howell, Andy Barnett, and Carl Webb, while Dan Petch won on his first start for the Institute.
In Division One, Amblecote Inst B won the first three frames at home to Kingswinford SC thanks to Adam Coley, Cary Homer & Mick Cook, with a 39 break, and although the visitors replied through John Byng and Tim Carter, the Institute, unbeaten in their four games, have a two point lead at the top.
In the clash between the two early season Division Two pace-setters, Norton Social B just held on to their unbeaten record, 3-2 away to Stourbridge Old Edwardians. Although Harry Hall gave the home team a good start, Joe Davies won well for Norton who then clinched the match with black-ball successes for both Jamie Cartwright and Luke Grosvenor. All three Norton players have yet to taste defeat; Chris Cowley’s black ball consolation at least ensured Old Ed’s have second place to themselves.
