HEWORTH ‘A’ continued their perfect start to the York Conservative Clubs Faber Shield Snooker League season with a 5-2 win at home to second-placed Malton ‘A’.

Kevin Gall and Richard Burdett put the hosts two frames to the good, but victories for Malton’s Phil Hart and Dan Pawson left everything all square.

Heworth won the next two games through Gary Douglas and Joe Kilmartin, and were awarded the final frame as Malton were a man short.

Fulford ‘A’ had to come back from two frames down, as they beat visiting Acomb ‘A’ 4-3.

The home team started strongly, Sam Parkinson and Dave Reed beating Tim Lister and Keith Thornhill, respectively.

Acomb’s Richard Lillie pulled a frame back, before Paul Holmes made a break of 27 to level the contest and Phil Carlton won a frame to edge the visitors ahead.

Fulford responded strongly though, and won the last two frames thanks to Tristan Owen and Tom Lewis.

Bootham ‘A’ could only muster five players as they were defeated 5-2 at Acomb ‘B’.

The home side’s Nick Goodacre’s frame against Andy Wynn went down to the wire, Goodacre winning the game on the black. Kevin Ventress doubled Acomb's advantage against Colin Robinson.

Bootham levelled matters, helped by a break of 24 from Tim Fillingham and Barry Rankin’s 33.

Jon Milner secured the win for Acomb against Stuart Martel.

Bootham ‘B’ entertained Heworth ‘B’, the visitors emerging 4-3 winners.

Heworth won frames through John McCready, Paul Henderson, Andy Ogley and John Sherlock, with the replies for the home side coming from Matt Smith, Paul Mahoney and Paul Powell.
