Cue wizard Mark Gray produced the best individual performance of the Spalding and District League season so far as he made a scintillating 109 clearance.

The Bourne SC A ace, who plays off an O98 handicap as a former professional, gave opponent Doug Garfoot (O14) a whopping 84 start in their frame in the Division Two tie.

Consti H’s Garfoot extended that advantage into the 90s, but an on-song Gray made the first ton score of the campaign to date to clinch his first frame success of the season and seal a 5-1 win for his side.

The Bourne ace is no stranger to ton breaks, having made a stunning 141 last term – the highest ever made on the Spalding scene.

Elsewhere in the second tier, leaders Consti F made it five wins from as many games as they stormed to an unbelievable 6-0 triumph at Whittlesey A.

Robert Adams (O14), Bryan Turnell (R14), Warren Peel (scr), Chris English (R14) and Kevin Ekins (R14) all won impressively.

At the other end of the table, Consti G registered their first victory by walloping hosts Whittlesey C 6-0. Black-ball wins from Andy Grimwood (O14) and Marcus Drury (O7) were key for Consti.

In the top flight, Tulips A continued their scorching start with a 4-2 victory at Long Sutton A. Nick Savic (O35) made a 29 break to guide the leaders to a sixth success on the trot.

Tulips B are level on points with their friendly foes following their 5-1 home return against Holbeach A. Mark Woodberry (O28) led the way for the Spalding side with a fine 36 break.

The best Division One break of the week went to Donington C’s Neil Reynolds (O49). He made a slick 47 to help dispatch Consti B 5-1.

Pyramid B’s Jason Green (O56) was also on-song, as he trousered a 44 break to help his side see off Services E 5-1.

Meanwhile, Holbeach B are clear at the top of Division Three after seeing off Consti D 5-1. Martin Perkins (O21) was the sole frame winner for the hosts, making a fine 44 break in the process.

Services D are flying high in fourth after defeating Pyramid E 4-2, with Karen Howlett (R21) winning the decisive penultimate frame.

Pet Moisey (R21) made a 22 break in vain for Pyramid.

The all-club affair between Gosberton C and Gosberton A was edged by the C side 4-2, despite a telling 20 break from Lee Watson (O7) in the opening frame.

Boundary C got a morale-boosting 5-1 win over Consti A to shoot up the table.
