Workington’s United Club A swapped places with opponents Flimby Social in the top tier of L & L Property Contractors Snooker League.
A 3-2 home win took them into second spot.
An excellent Dave Chapman win in the first gave United A a solid foundation to build off and with Mark Suitor proving victorious in gruelling second frame the Workington side were two to the good.
In the next a Clive Lister break of 32 put the United Club A in a really good position and with the Workington cueist converting it into a victory the Division One challengers were now sure of the match win.
Flimby still had two points to play for and as Kevin Kirkham turned a 32 break into frame victory and Sal Cakmak ground out a win in the last the Social side ended the match feeling much happier.
Workington Golf Club A maintained their lead at the top of Division One with a 4-1 home victory over Division Two’s Maryport Social.
A win on the last few balls from Mark Brasted gave the Golf Club A side the ideal start and as the every reliable Bryan Walker took frame two the Division One leaders led 2-0.
A thumping Andrew Sharp win dragged the Maryport side back into the game at 2-1 but with Phil Sorfleet winning a low scoring fourth the Golf Club A reached an unassailable 3-1 lead.
The last frame gave the Social side a slim chance of reducing the deficit but with a break of 32 Ryan Ismay romped home to deliver an efficient Golf Club A victory.
Division Two leaders Workington Veterans Club A defeated Division One opponents for the second time in as many weeks, this time away to fellow townies Station Road Club.
The 3-2 victory started with another win from the in-form Craig Davies and with team mate and captain Kevin Basnett winning with ease in the next a 2-0 Vets A lead was gained.
A fine shot on the final black along the top cushion allowed Steve Garroway to make it 3-0 but with damage limitation now the centre point for Station Road Club John Teasdale stayed focused to make it 3-1.
In the final frame of the match Mike Walker looked purposeful from the off, and in turning this level of determination into a win the Station Road Club cueist ensured that, from 3-0 down, the best possible result was achieved.
Whitehaven’s Rack Shack slugged it out with Division Two rivals in Workington’s United Club B and with a 3-2 home win they continue to show steady improvement as the season develops.
A Chris McKelvey victory in frame one gave the Rack Shack the lead but as Adam Sowden pinched the next on the black parity was achieved.
Frame three proved to be the lowest scoring contest of the match but that wasn’t to bother Stephen Jackson as a victory put the United Club B 2-1 up.
Andy Moore carried his singles KO form through to the league with a victory in frame four to give the Whitehaven outfit a chance to steal the match win.
Deciders often end up tight affairs but Neil Dougherty had other ideas. As the Rack Shack cueist took the lead he grew from strength to strength and in eventually winning by a significant margin Dougherty ensured his side recorded their fourth win of the season.
Finally, the all Division Two clash between Workington Veterans Club B and Workington Golf Club B ended with the Golf B side running out 3-2 away winners.
Victories for Adam Hodgson and Lewis Staughton put the higher placed side in a strong position with the match win in mind but with triumphs for Will Fennell and Jack Hunter, in addition to a final frame point, the Golf Club B side went home as comeback,victors.
