BILLIARDS: Marvellous Mick sinks a 92 break

THERE’S just no stopping Mick Johnson in the Spalding and District League this year.

The Consti B maestro registered yet another emphatic break in what has so far been a stellar campaign, as his 92 helped knock Donington out of the Billiards Shield.

Johnson (O170) also trousered breaks of 66 and 44 (twice) as he beat Norman Gookey (R80) 200-179 in the final frame, which helped Consti progress 589-566.

Elsewhere, runaway league leaders Pyramid B eased past Holbeach C 583-432.

Maurice Phillipson (R90) and Martin O’Connor (R40) registered their wins, while Brian Bowell (R20) made the best break of the match.

Crowland A were also pretty comfortable winners over BSC. Neil Brader (R90), Richard Walker (R100) and Derek Tinkler (O30) all won to clinch a 600-506 success, with Tinkler pocketing a 22 break.

A maximum 600 points went to Long Sutton, Bourne Snooker Centre and Gosberton B too, as they superbly dispatched Consti C, Consti A and Holbeach B respectively.

Results: Pyramid B 583 Holbeach C 432; Crowland A 600 BSC 506; Consti C 582 Long Sutton 600; Holbeach B 546 Gosberton B 600; Consti A 511 Bourne SC 600; Gosberton 571 Pyramid A 543; Consti B 589 Donington 566.
