THREE Horseshoes B had the consolation of winning an incredible pairs leg as they lost 7-2 at men’s Section 8 leaders Ampleforth Arms B.
Ampleforth eased into a 6-1 lead, with Adam Woodley among their victors, but lost the second pairs’ clash in spectacular fashion.
Needing 350 to win the leg, Horseshoes’ Adam West hit a 180, then teammate Gary Pinchers landed a maximum 170 checkout with 60, 60 and bull to take it.
Ampleforth took the last pairs game for a comfortable 7-2 win.

Phil Younge beat Debbie Baldwin to level the match and a 2-1 pairs win sealed it for Donnington.
