IT’S as you were at the top of Chester & District League Rileys Division One.
St Saviours B held on to top spot with a 5-1 victory at United Services A while Conservative A matched that scoreline at Chester Bus to remain second.
Craig Thelwell and Jason Taylor put Cons two frames up before Eddie Jenkins, Steve Williams and Andy Short swept aside Chris Read, Damien Futcher and Steve Futcher respectively. The ever-reliable Gordon Dugdale beat Barry Charker 81-37 for the Bus consolation.
The Q Bar A remain third with a 6-0 home win over Christleton A.
Neal Jones and the returning Mike Fisher won their respective matches with Mike Craig and John Smith before Simon Moulton, Mark Jarvis, Richard Remelie and M Roberts completed the whitewash.
There was also a 6-0 success for defending champions Christleton B at home to Upton ABL A. Ellesmere Port Conservative Club won 4-2 at home to Rileys.
Runaway Olympic Trophies Division Two leaders The Q Bar were 5-1 winners at CCO.
Captain Joey Wynne stood out for the visitors with three plus-30 breaks.
Conservative C got the better of new boys United Services B 4-2, with Alan Rogers, John Wells, Kevin Harris and Tom Donnelly doing the damage for the hosts and L Diamond and Les Perkins reducing the arrears.
Waverton also won 4-2, at Upton RBL B, while Conservative B drew 3-3 with Liberal, for whom L Hughes, Phil Sullivan and Anthony Barnes secured a share of the spoils after Danny Billingham, Alan Taylor and Martin Peaker – the latter following a gruelling one-and-a-half-hour frame – put the home side in front.
Ricky Walden crashed out of The Masters qualifying at the last-16 stage after going down 5-2 to Rory McLeod last Wednesday – but then more than made up for that disappointment by racing the New York City Marathon for charity on Sunday.
Although the Chester-born world number 20 was 17 minutes shy of the four-hour time he had set himself, he did raise £1,500 for Teenage Cancer Trust.
