Sublime show from Jamie Wilson is decisive blow to seal crown alongside Dusty Tingley as Rendle brothers are beaten
Jamie Wilson made a sublime 57 break under pressure as he went on the rampage to win the Portsmouth Snooker League handicap pairs competition with Dusty Tingley against brothers Wayne and Lee Rendle.
The rules of the competition meant Tingley and Wilson were giving a 10-point start in each frame, writes Steve Toms.
They started well in frame one with Wilson making a 24 break as they won the first frame winning it 62-19 and go 1-0 up.
In frame two it was all about good scoring with all four players playing well. The Rendle brothers both made good breaks but Tingley hit back with a 38 break of his own.
But Wayne was let in and he cleared the last three colours and levelled it up by taking the frame 81-67 to make it 1-1.
Frame three went to the colours. Wayne got in and made a good 38 break but yet again this was cancelled out as this time it was Wilson who made a 39 clearance to take the frame 87-42 and edge in front 2-1.
It was a battle for the Rendle brothers in frame four as they needed to win this frame to take it down to a decider. They both made good breaks, showing strong resolve and it was too much for Tingley and Wilson as the brothers won the frame 75-18 to set up a decider.
In frame five the Rendle brothers had the early control of the table. A missed red then allowed Wilson in and he didn’t disappoint, making a very good 57 break to seal the frame 72-13 and win the match 3-2.
