The second week of Smirnoff saw six matches played after the opening day had just one match take place due to a raft of postponements.
Mark, however, showed good bouncebackability to win two matches this week and is the early season table topper.
Ryan sits second, three points behind his opponent, after playing two more matches this weekend, with one win and one loss against two league newcomers.
Playing Mark Frost, Ryan won the opening three frames to give himself a platform that his opponent was never able to recover from, as although Mark brought it back to 3-2, Ryan kicked on with another brace to clinch the match.
The final two frames were swapped as the match finished 6-3.
A second brace of the match for Ryan put him on the hill at 4-2, but Laura was not to be denied in her Shootpool Blackball Singles League debut match as she won the final three frames to complete the 5-4 comeback.
Looking ahead to next week's fixtures, leader Mark Tumilty and second placed Ryan May both don't play, giving the chasing pack the chance to close the gap at the top. Mike Collins in third faces Trevor Gunn. Amber Carter sits in joint fourth after her superb fightback victory and will face Dan Dalton this week with Dan having comfortably won their two prior Smirnoff meetings. Sue Latham and Elliot Riley will clash with the pair sharing their Smirnoff previous encounters one apiece. And the last match of the afternoon sees two league newcomers face another as Mark Frost plays Laura Hunter.
Next week's fixtures in full, to be played on 15th October at 4:00pm
