Harrow Inter-League Tournament – Tense Finish To Saffron Walden First Round Win

Congratulations to our SWDSL team in winning the first round knock out match of the Harrow & District Snooker League – Inter-League Tournament 7-5 against Goffs Oak Comrades Club.

The team started well taking an early 2-0 lead with Mickey Cushion on form.  Jonathan Wells and Russell Huxter both added to the tally with a frame each to help bring the score to 4-2.  Captain Adam Ingram also produced some good snooker to catapult the team further into the lead and a win looked assured.  But leading 6-2 and only requiring 1 frame for victory from the remaining 4 frames, Graham Driver unexpectedly lost both frames and the match stood at 6-4.  Coming on last, Stuart Turner lost his first frame and Goffs Oak were back in the match trailing 6-5 and needed the final frame to level at 6-6 and to force a deciding frame.  Fortunately Stuart produced the sort of snooker he is more than capable of and powered his way to a convincing frame win to secure a 7-5 victory for the team.  Overall a worthy win for the SWDSL team, well done lads!

We will update the website once the draw has been done for the next round and advise date/venue etc for the next match.
