interleague match two

SCPA INTERLEAGUE PREMIER DIVISION MATCH TWO

STAFFORD 9-9 STOKE PLAZA

Played on Friday 10th March 2017 @Kennys Sportsbar.

  Stafford welcomed Stoke Plaza in their latest Interleague match and came out with a draw after some fine pool was played by both teams on the night. Pete Sandhar, Dave Whitfield & Duncan Sunderland were the absentees on the night but Irene Wood returned to the side after missing match ONE.


  Captain Alan Mason threw on Mark Shaw and Mike Barker for the first two frames and it was Barker who took his chance to give Stafford the lead, unfortunately Shaw couldnt follow suit as his opposite player cleared the table to level the scores. Simon Key then lost to an impressive 8 ball clearance by his opponent to fall 2-1 behind but before Stafford had time to lick there wounds Paul Loughead pulled of a great win to bring the scores level at 2-2. Frame 5 saw Mick Addison lose a close encounter. However like before, Stafford responded in style with an outstanding 8 ball clearance by Chris Broomhall to level the scores yet again at 3-3. Robbie Jenkinson then was fortunate in his frame and give Stafford a 4-3 lead. Alan Mason looked in complete control in his frame, but a slice of luck by his opponent saw him snatch the frame after potting the black off 4 cushions. Dave Barker showed his recent good form and won convincingly to give Stafford a 5-4 lead at the break 


  Captain Mason brought in Irene Wood for Shaw for the second half. Both Mike Barker and Si Key lost their games narrowly but a great pot on the black by Irene Wood pulled the scores level. Addison unfortunately lost to give the visitors the lead but Loughead picked up his 2nd win of the night with another fine clearance. Broomhall continued his fine performance on the night with a clinical finish in his game to give Stafford again an 8-7 lead.  Unfortunately Jenkinson didnt have the luck in his 2nd game as he did in his 1st game and lost from a winnable position to give his opposite number a win to level the scores. Mason in the penultimate game had other ideas and punished his opponent with a fine clearance to give the Stafford team an 9-8 lead. However Dave Barker never really had a chance and had to watch his opponent pull off a fine clearance to give the visitors a deserved draw. A fair result between two sides who look likely to be challenging for the crown this season.


  Man of the Match goes to Chris Broomhall for 2 fine displays of potting and positional play in both games
