Steve Smith stalls Hermits H progress
Hermits H were hopeful of completing back-to-back victories in Division Four of the Bradford League but were thwarted by a Steve Smith-inspired comeback from Pudsey B.
Hermits had recorded a 6-4 success at Laisterdyke B in week one and looked on course for a second victory as they surged into a 4-2 lead.
Kath Manogue logged wins over Lynne Thompson and Granville Thornton, while Tim Moran beat Thornton and Joe Jonas overcame Thompson.
But Smith proved to be the thorn in Hermits’ side as Pudsey fought back, with Thompson stopping Moran and Smith completing his treble against Manogue.
Thornton edged Pudsey ahead in the final singles against Jonas and then teamed up with Smith to take the doubles for a 6-4 Pudsey victory.
Hermits J did manage a second success in Division Five as they followed up their 7-3 win at Baildon C with an 8-2 verdict over Hermits L.
Paul Rook and Peter Clark both took all three singles points, while Gordon Tilbrook tagged on a single and added the doubles with Rook.
