IVY Leaf were crowned Thames Valley Snooker League Team Trophy champions after beating Racks B 378-330.

Doug Smith made a fine start as he fluked a blue on his way to victory over ex-professional Mark Evans, while, on the other table, Jack Hedley made a hard-working 30 in his defeat to Darren Castle.

Rob then edged to a narrow victory against John Hester and Gary made a 25 and 22 at the end of the frame to record a good victory over Anka Nangpal.

In their second frame Evans was going well until he got a kick to end a break on 37 before Smith replied with a 35, while Hedley enjoyed a comfortable win in his second frame.

That put Ivy Leaf 13 in front with two frames to play.

Hester edged the first by two points against Rob Thwaite, but Gary Herbert ensured victory for Ivy Leaf with a commanding final frame.
