Annette Newman from Carlow continued her winning streak on the National Amateur Billiards Tour with her 5th win in a row, taking the Leinster Open Billiards Ranking event at the RILSA Academy Sharkx Newbridge recently.

Session 1 saw Annette Newman from Carlow take on Stephanie Foley also from Carlow in this 30 minute round robin match.  Annette scored well to close out a convincing win over Stephanie 109 to 35 on the alarm.  Tina Keogh from Offaly and Joanna Ward from Kildare had a close match that could have gone either way but Tina took the win on the alarm 87-73

The second session saw Annette continue her form against Tina but it took a few minutes for Annette to get going and Tina was not playing to her usual standard as the seconds ticked down, Annette finished strong to take the win 87-34.   Stephanie improved her scoring against Joanna towards the final seconds taking the win 72-60.

In the final session Tina and Stephanie kept close in scores all the way to the alarm and finished on a draw 50-50 while Annette continued her strong scoring against Joanna to take her 3rd win on the evening 115-57

When the scores were tallied Annette would take her 5th ranking title in a row with a great combined score of 311 and Joanna would take runner up place with a score of 190 followed by Tina in 3rd on 171 with Stephanie in 4th spot on 157

Congratulations to Annette on her win and well done to Joanna on a fine performance and thanks to all the girls for their support.  Thanks to Bernie, Paul and staff of Sharkx for all their help and support as always, much appreciated
