RUDHEATH remain on course to win a Northwich and District League and cup double after reaching the Team Knockout final.

They ended the run of Division Three promotion hopefuls Chapels, which had included four victories.

The Weaverham outfit did not roll over, bowing out 4-2.

Owley Wood A, competition winners in 2008, lost in unfortunate circumstances in a deciding frame against Division One rivals The Elms.

Tied after sharing six frames, Martin Gerrard was unlucky to pot both black and white balls to gift safe passage to the Pickmere side.

Favourites Gladstone C, on course to finish as runners-up to Rudheath in the top flight, eased through to the Supplementary Shield final at Castle Private’s expense.

In the other final four clash, Barn Owl C squeezed past Division One rivals Bowling Green A by the odd frame in seven after a close encounter at Rudheath.
