Division Three Report - Wk7
Oct 16 2006
Headington RBL moved up into second place behind Cowley Con A despite losing 4-2 at home to Thame B. Francis Mapplethorpe won the opening frame 52-30 to put RBL ahead, but the lead was short lived with Dave White taking the second frame 48-26. Thame then went ahead through Tom Fletcher who beat Elaine Cox 41-23 in the third frame. With only the colours remaining in the fourth frame, Cox needed a snooker but this hurdle was overcome when Fletcher went in off on the green. That inspired Cox who took the frame 54-53 after Fletcher fouled on the black. Thame’s match winner was Nigel Bossom who beat Tony Swatton 58-28, 55-30.

At the foot of the table, Cowley Con C came from 3-0 down to force a draw with fellow strugglers Morris Motors A, but they remain 3 points adrift. Doug Baker gave Morris’s the perfect start when he beat Jim Smart Snr 49-13, 55-19 and this was extended to 3-0 after Des Truss beat Jim Smart Jnr 60-45. Smart Jnr then hit back to take the next frame 55-46. Mark Bayliss completed Cowley’s turnaround, beating Tony Baker 58-31, 54-31.
