SOVEREIGN B are still looking down on the FDBSL but the undefeated leaders didn’t have it easy against their ‘A’ counterparts in a top of the table clash.

They were 2-0 up and cruising thanks to convincing frames by Tony Edwards and Allan Gomez, only for Shakeel Ahmad and Dean Goodall to hit back.

Liss RBL A also had to settle for a draw against champions Comrades A with Kevin Woodford hitting excellent breaks of 31 and 38 against Michael Casey. But Paul Murphy lost his 100 per cent record in the third before Ian Etherington edged a tight one against Neil Callingham in the fourth.

The biggest story of the night involved a familiar name with Ryan Mears once again topping the breaks table with an 81 clearance for Sovereign C against a winless Shottermill, beating the 80 previously set by Russell Wishart by a point.

RESULTS: Sovereign C 3-1 Shottermill B, Liss RBL A 2-2 Comrades A, Sovereign A 2-2 Sovereign B, Fleet Broadway 2-2 Liss RBL B, Lindford B 1-3 Grayshott B.

BREAKS: Ryan Mears 81, Kevin Woodford 38 & 31, John Pavey 32, Aaron Downey 32, Simon Laney 30 & 22, Shakeel Ahmad Shaneel 30, Nick Booth 28, Bob Toulouse 26 & 23, Michael Casey 25, Tony Edwards 22, Darren Ridgers 20

There’s yet another new leader in Division Two with Passfield making a strong case for back-to-back promotions thanks to a 3-1 win against a decent Rowledge B side.

Big breaks have been lacking in the second tier with the 25 for Tim Allen of Farnham Cons B in a 2-2 draw against Hindhead RBL B being the biggest of the night.

There was also a much needed win for Comrades B in a 3-1 against fellow strugglers Traco E with Pete Casey securing victory for the Haslemere side.

RESULTS: Liss RBL C P-P Bourne B, Hindhead RBL B 2-2 Farnham Cons B, Passfield 3-1 Rowledge B, Traco B 2-2 Hindhead RBL A, Comrades B 3-1 Traco E

BREAKS: Tim Allen 25, Adrian Last 22

Alton Cons A remain four clear in Division Three but lost their 100 per cent record in a 2-2 draw against Frensham D. The visitors were 2-1 up but Chris Schiel’s 56-30 win against Barrie Etherington maintained his side’s undefeated record.

Carl Saunders could be making a second presentation night appearance in three years as his 37 break for Alton Cons F in a 2-2 against Lindford C was the highest of the season so far. Joe Ingram also made a 25 for the WMC side in an entertaining match.

RESULTS: Alton Cons A 2-2 Frensham D, Traco F 3-1 Traco C, Bordon WMC A 3-1 Lindford D, Rowledge C 0-4 Sovereign D, Bourne A P-P Bordon WMC B, Lindford C 2-2 Alton Cons F

BREAKS: Carl Saunders 37, Joe Ingram 26, Simon Foote 25
