Keith Streak Lights Up Open's Opening Day

Twelve tons by Keith Johnson lit up the first week of the new Plymouth Open League Division A season, but his total that included a maximum couldn't stop Lugger B from falling to a 6-5 defeat against St Levans.

Johnson's Devonport side were pegged back from a lead of 5-1 in a match that ended with Mark Hopkins breaking the hearts of the visitors with a 2-0 singles win to give the Keyham outfit the lead for the first time.

Three huge checkouts by the Fortescue couldn't get the home side over the line in a 7-4 defeat against St Johnston B that saw Russell Hitchcock plough home a 125 combination.

Other checkouts included a 96 from Simon Moxham and a 90 by Jordan Angear, which all won points but were not enough to give the Mutley crew a first win of the season.

Lee Doncaster's 180 and a 68 checkout by Lee O'Mahony got Victory on the path to success in a 7-4 win over Ker St C whilst Lee Gilliard added a checkout of 110 during a 7-4 win for Pennycross at Cherry Tree B.

Falstaff started with a last gasp 6-5 success at Fawn A that saw the away side surrender leads of 3-1 and 5-2 before Chris Hooper netted the win in the final game of the night.

Last season's champions, Beacon Park, had Nick Bryant firing a maximum in a 7-4 success in their visit to Lugger A.

A 119 checkout by Jez Sanderson lit up the Prince Maurice derby as Sanderson's Prince Maurice FC were downed 6-5 by the Prince Maurice pub.

The only checkout to better a 96 from Weston Mill Oak Villa's Jordan Grimshaw during a 6-5 defeat against Mainstone A was a 100 from Cameron O'Brien for the triumphant visitors.

In Division B, Jan McGinley heard 'game shot' called from 70 in a 7-4 win at Legends Lounge B whilst King Billy A were 10-1 winners at Herbert and the Cherry Tree derby was won 9-2 by the A team versus their C side.

Bluebird started their campaign with a 9-2 win over Albermarle whilst Weston Mill Hotel won 8-3 at Agaton A, Fawn B got off the line with an 8-3 success over Tap & Barrel and Kings Arms were 7-4 victors at Mainstone B.
