Stef Wait’s victory in the concluding snooker frame helped give the Mildenhall Social Club a 2-3 win over the New Astley Club in the Newmarket Snooker and Billiards League.

Andy Isaacson chalked up the visitors’ first point with a 41-33 victory over Steve Debenham, achieved when potting the pink.

Mildenhall’s lead was quickly doubled as Richard Lyes, despite at one stage finding himself 10 points down turned over Chris Hibbard in the first billiards contest 100-58.

Rob Walker pulled a point back for the New Astley team with a 73-46 win over Steve Jones Junior in the second snooker frame, before Rhyes Evans levelled the match with a 100-94 win over Steve Jones senior, who was playing his first billiards match, in the last billiards contest.

Having surrendered their two point lead Mildenhall ended the New Astley fight back with Wait defeating Matt Lee 37-28 in a scrappy final snooker frame.

Cambridge Snooker Centre extended their lead at the top of the table to six points following a 4-1 win against Cheveley Royal British Legion.

Jordan Lemmon was in annihilation mode as he crushed Ian Spinks 89-6 in a very one sided opening snooker frame.

Cambridge captain Peter Johnson was not playing to his normal standards and his opponent Ian Starling took full advantage winning 100-45.

Chris Merchant gave the home side the upper hand winning his game 74-40 over Dale Jeffery, before Tony French secured the win, but only by the skin of his teeth, running out the 100-98 winner against Mark Avison in the second billiards contest.

In the last game Johnny Mutch kept up his winning streak with a comfortable 67-19 victory over Dave Rabbeth.

Second placed Cheveley Road Club B came out on top in their clash with the club’s A side in their first meeting of the season.

Things started well enough for the A team as Andy Dawson got the first frame beating Dan Stoodley 45-34.

Stevie Kerr got the sides even with another breathtaking display including a 74 break winning 175-34 against Larry 

Paul Jefferies that got the upper hand over Paul Sharpe with a 57-24 victory putting the B side in the driving seat.

David Bentinck pushed B side captain Karl Bursford all the way before Bursford eventuality ran out 100-92, Jason Browes secured the final point with a narrow 55-39 win over Paul Bunting.
