The 2021 National Intermediate Snooker Championship at the RILSA Academy was won by Megan Randle from Wicklow in a closely contested event.
Megan is the first player to retain this title and won it 3 times in 4 seasons, a fantastic achievement for the Wicklow woman.
In the Quarters Tina Keogh from Offaly saw off Stephanie Foley from Carlow to reach the semis with a good display of snooker on the day, winning their match 2-0. Megan Randle from Wicklow was held to task by the youngster, Jennifer Earle from Dublin who had chances to level in their two frame bout which ended in a black ball in the second for Megan to pot to meet Tina in the semis.
Emirjeta Doda from Dublin got a walkover into the semis, as Joanna Ward and Christine Carr both from Kildare played out the last quarterfinal with Christine coming out the winner 2-0 to meet Emirjeta in the semis.
Megan had to dig deep against Tina as the match levelled at 1-1 to go to the wire in the 3rd frame with Megan eventually getting over the line to reach her second Intermediate Championship final. Emirjeta really played some good snooker to oust Christine 2-0 in their semi final to reach her first Intermediate Championship final
The final saw both players playing well, with Megan taking the first on the last few colours, frame two went all the way to a black ball with Megan again potting to take the win and title for the second year in a row.
Congratulations to Megan on a great win and the first player to retain the National Intermediate Championship title along with setting another record as the first player to win this title 3 times, well done to Emirjeta on a fine performance and a big thank you to all the girls for their support.
Thanks to Bernie, Paul of Sharkx for providing fantastic facilities to female cue sports and thanks to Dave Earle who refereed throughout the day.
