Snooker league titles are still up for grabs

It’s wide open at the top of Division One in the Spalding and District Snooker League, after leaders Bourne SC A lost 4-2 in a crunch match against second-placed Boundary A.

Just two points now separate the teams, with only two matches left to play before the end of the season.
Third-placed Pyramid C held on to their position thanks to a 6-0 whitewash of clubmates Pyramid A – their second consecutive 6-0 win.
That loss means the A team, who are sitting at the foot of the table, are almost certain to be relegated to Division Two next season.
