The Northern Ireland Ladies Snooker Tour continues with great success as they got their 3rd Ranking event underway at the Cue Club Newry.

Chucky Preston was in good form going into the event and continued her winning streak making it 3 in a row for her.

The event was played in a round robin format.  It was Roisin Smith who topped the group with one loss to Alex Babb, Chucky Preston was second with one loss to Roisin and Alex Babb in 3rd spot with losses to Jean Mcllroy and Chucky Preston.  Then it was a 3 way tie between Andrea McAllister, Avril Preston and Debra Murphy.  A 1 frame knock out was played and it was Andrea who secured a semi final place.

It was a bitter sweet frame for Roisin as Andrea needed 1 snooker with 18 points remaining to which a foul from Roisin let Andrea back in the frame which she cleared the colours to put her into the final.  Chucky was in fine form making a 37 break against Alex to take her into her 3rd final in a row.

The final itself was a bit scrappy in parts but Chucky proved the stronger to take the match 2 nil and title.

Congratulations to Chucky on her win and Alex on a fine performance.  Well done to all the players for their support.

Well done to Avril Preston who won the plate Competition in a black ball frame against Susan Graham.
