The inaugural Leinster Snooker Federation Cup Competition was held over a number of Tuesday evenings at Sharkx Newbridge where the Sharkx “B” Team made up of Christine Carr & Peter McDermott took the title after a great tournament that saw some very close encounters along the way
Sharkx “B” had a close call going all the way to the final frame when Peter McDermott took it against Tina Keogh of the Portarlington Team of Tina & Robbie Keogh to go through to the semis 7-6
Sharkx “A” Team made up of Leon Costello & Declan Tuohy had a good result over the League Champions of Annette Newman & Dan Carroll to win their quarter final match 7-5
The Ballymany Team of the Alan & Alan (Sen) Beale got a bye to the semis while Morristown made up of John Dempsey & Richard Cullen had a good win over Cloneygowan of Val & Tom Maloney with a 7-3 win to complete the semi final line up
Sharkx “B” were again held down to a final frame shoot out against Morristown when Peter once again came to the rescue to take the frame needed to see them through to their first Cup final 7-6
Ballymany had their chances against Sharkx “A” but Declan won the frame to see them through to the final with Sharkx “B” with a 7-5 win
Both Sharkx teams were set for the final as with Sharkx “A” on a 4 frame start and Sharkx “B” on 3 frames and the first to 7, this was going to be a tense match, Peter won two frames to 1 against Leon to level the match 5-5, however Christine was in fine form against Declan and won 2 nil to give them the cup title 2018, 7-5 the final result.
Congratulations to Sharkx “B” on their win and to Sharkx”A” on their great performance throughout the Cup event.
