With the Holburn on a high from Tuesdays nights victory against the Caledon in the Abbie Jamieson Trophy and the Caledon desperately seeking revenge, tonight match looked as if it might be a classic.

The first frame pitted Ray Edmonstone against Richard Bruce.Ray broke and was looking good for a clearance until a slightly careless shot left him struggling to get nicely on his last ball, the subsequent miss allowed Tich back to the table. After the second of his layed snookers reaped 2 visits he duly cleared...

The Holburn went 2-0 to the good after young Philip Craig launched the cueball off the table on his break. Derek Scott need no further invitation to rub in the mistake, clearing nicely.

The next 2 frames could have went either way, with normally very consistant players breaking down badly. it would be cruel of me to mention John Falconers attempted black against Darren Matthew, so I won't...

4-0 to the Holburn and thus far hadn't lost a single frame in the entire competition to date. Things were about to change however.

With Tom Murry looking good to make it 5-0, he inexplicably found the corner pocket with the cueball, Kev Coutts stepped in and punished the unforced error. First cheer of the night from the Caledon camp.

More cueball woe was to follow for the Holburn, with Scott "frames" James carelessly dropping in off. Big Craig Robertson didn't put a foot wrong in clearing. 4-2

Steve Annal held his nerve well in the next to sink a tough black and the match was well and truly alive.

Nicky Duncan fudged his way to victory in the next after an early potting flurry from Martin McIntosh came unstuck. 5-3 at the break.

Holburn took the first after the break to give what most would have though an unasailable 6-3 lead. The Caledon camp had other ideas.

A fantastic finish out of nowhere from Ray Edmonstone had Deryck Scott scratching his head.

Next up was Phil Jnr against Tich. As fate would have it, it was Tich's turn to lauch the cueball into a low lunar orbit from the break. That proved to be his last shot in the game.

A very brave clearance from John Falconer in the next took the match to 6-6

Darren Matthew v Phil Snr was next up in a frame Phil will want to forget quicky, managing to snooker himself when the finish looked a formality.

Paul Begg was allowed a bite at the cherry in the next but took on a low percentage pot that was inevitably going to leave a finish for his opponent. Couttsie duly obliged to balance the match at 7-7

The next was a veritable tweakfest between Martin McIntosh and Rico. Both players obviously feeling the pressure. Martin managed to stay composed enought to deposit the black to take the Caledon to the hill.

With the match poised at the same scoreline as Tuesdays encounter, it fell on the shoulders of "Frames" to again bring the match to a playoff. History was not to repeat itself however, with Steve Annal bringing home the bacon for the Caledon with some style, much to the relief of Bar owner Martin Smith who had been doing a passable impression of "Stressed Eric" for most of the evening.

The two teams meet again next week for the final part of the cup trilogy. It would be a brave man that could predict the outcome.
