Holbeach B raced eight points clear at the top of the Spalding and District Billiards League with a 5-2 success at Consti D.

Also on fine form was Crowland B’s Rob Childs (O190) in a 5-2 victory over Crowland A. He made 64, 57, 43, 38 and an unfinished 58 en route to a frame win.

Elsewhere, Consti A won 4-3 at Pyramid A despite two 23 breaks from John Twell (R60).
