STEVE Mason made a break of 60 as Norton Social A made an impressive start to the Stourbridge & District Snooker League.
Last-year’s Premier Division runners up emphasised their determination to go one better this term winning 5-0 at home to Moor Pool & Snooker A.
Neil Beckley, Milan Krstanovic and Dave Green in the decider against former Midland Amateur champion Alan Hooper helped Hotshots SC beat Brandhall Labour 3-2.
There was no joy for the newly promoted sides with Kingswinford RBL edged oput by Ian Priest in the decider at Moor Pool and Snooker B, Tony Davies winning his 20th successive frame by way of consolation. Netherton Sports and Social performed creditably only losing 3-2 at Pockets SC A, the hosts prevailibng through Tom and Rich Pepperall, and John Betton with breaks of 38 and 57.
Danny Rees cleared with 68 in the decider against another former Midland winner Kev Franklin as West Midlands Police were beaten 3-2 by Pockets SC B.
