Howard Mawson through to Yorkshire Snooker Handicap quarter-finals
Howard Mawson is the only surviving Bradford player in the quarter-finals of the Yorkshire Snooker Handicap after successfully negotiating Sunday's qualifiers at Cue Gardens.
In the first round, Mawson was drawn against his doubles partner and Eccleshill Victoria Cons team mate Chris Metcalfe and he took the bragging rights, edging two very close frames.
After that came a 3-0 victory over Selby's Kevin Hawkesworth to secure a last-16 place where Mawson's opponent was highly talented youngster Sanderson Lam from Leeds, an England international who had earlier beaten Bradford's England International Kevin Firth 2-0.
However, Mawson took full advantage of his opportunities and was a worthy 3-0 winner.
Lewis Walsh negotiated his first-round match against Harry Hall but lost in the second round to Daz Hawkins (Castleford).
Dan Farmer, from Keighley, won his first against Sam Townend (Castleford) but lost in the last 16 to Mick Stocks (Huddersfield), while up-and-coming youngster Josh Walker fell short in his first-round match against Chris Evans.
Mawson will now face Michael Whalley from Huddersfield on Sunday, December 2, again at Cue Gardens, with Hawkins facing Martyn Beck (Huddersfield).
Ashley Carty (Sheffield) takes on Tony Else (Rotherham), and Stocks will play Sean Reynolds (Sheffield).
Bradford's snooker sides are in action again at the weekend in the Yorkshire Inter-District League, with Division One leaders Bradford No 1 travelling to Barnsley on Sunday (7.30pm), while Bradford No 3, who are joint top of Division Three, are scheduled to be at Wakefield No 2.
The billiards side are not in action until a week on Saturday when they are at home to Huddersfield No 1.
In the Bradford Snooker Championships, Dave Stirk (Undercliffe Cricket) made it through to the second round with a 4-2 victory over Stefan Risidi (Pilky's), while nine-times champion Wayne Cooper (Laisterdyke Cricket) beat Walsh (Undercliffe Cricket) 4-1.
Players are reminded that they should make contact with their opponents at the earliest opportunity to arrange matches.
