With just three points separating the top three teams in the Premier Section of The T. R. Carpets Grimsby Snooker League Doubles, every frame is vital but this week out of the three, only Dads and Lads could manage a win. A steady start from Simon Bensley, Pete East, Matty Lawton and Mick Greenhalgh saw them share the first four frames with Andy McArthur, Matt Paterson, and Dave and Sean Bartlett of Hainton B before a last board 2-0 from Ian Taylor and Keith Tomlinson gave them the victory.
Clee Cons B were 3-0 down to Carr Lane A after Pete Dannatt and Jeff Brown won 2-0 and Vic Adams and Dennis Commons won their first frame. Steve Donner and Tom Keeley started the fight-back with a single, and the draw was ensured when Scott Gibbins and Lee Pawson won the last two frames.
An opening 2-0 from Dave Burton and Paul Blanchard was cancelled out by a last board 2-0 from Brad Burrell and Terry Haigh as Cue World Comets came back to draw three-three against Nats. In between, Abs Momin and Michael Dent shared with Danny Hargrave and Josh Austin.
Clee Cons A shot into a 5-0 lead at Taylor Made Carpets when Mike Vincent, Tony Forster, Rob Willerton and Dan Webster all won 2-0 and Jim Yates and Craig Thomas won their first frame. Taylor's saved the slam with a last frame single from Nick Mason and Terry Robinson.
