The 3rd RILSA National Intermediate Snooker Ranking event of the season was won by Tina Keogh from Laois playing some of her best snooker against the current number 1 on the National Intermediate rankings Christine Carr from Kildare in a 2-0 defeat at the RILSA Academy at Sharkx Newbridge recently.

Tina who is the current number 3 on the rankings is bidding for a top two spot by seasons end, while Christine is hoping to hold number 1 for a second season.

Christine had a good 2 nil win over a relative newcomer in 10 year old Clodage Walsh from Carlow who is making good progress in the sport in the semis and Tina had to play well to beat young Grace Byrne from Carlow who is making her presence known on the RILSA circuit in their semi final match to meet Christine in the final.

Tina stepped up a gear in the final and was playing her best snooker for a while to run out a 2 nil winner over Christine.

Congratulations to Tina on her great win and to Christine on a fine performance

Still all to play for as we break for the Christmas period while 2018 will decide the fate of these players who are dedicated to the sport and are improving all the time.

Thanks to all the players for their support and to Bernie & Paul of Sharkx for providing excellent facilities.
