Belmont 16′ Sailing Club – Lightning Billiards Premiers

Belmont 16′ Sailing Club and Minor Premiers and defending Champions, the Kahibah Sports Kingpins met in the Grand Final of the Lightning Billiards on Monday and had a thriller of a match. The Kahibah Kingpins got ahead early with Eric Bauer winning his first two games easily before Brian Bourke and Mick Hill for Belmont steadied the ship with strong performances. Going into the last group of matches Belmont only needed to win one more match but Kahibah’s Tony Paul and Dave Mackie dug deep to win which left the two captains to decide who will be the 2017-18 Lightning Billiards Champions. Although Eric Bauer was giving significant start he caught Mick Hill with about 30 points to go but Mick held his nerve to deny Eric and the Kahibah Sports Kingpins. Congratualtions to the Premiers, the Belmont 16′ Sailing Club. A big thanks to Wangi Workers Club for hosting the Grand Final and John Duchatel, Ian Callaghan and Grant Schubert for refereeing. Warren Johnson from Toronto Workers Club took out the seasons high break with 74.

Mayfield Bowling No.1 to meet Cessnock Comets in 6-Red Grand Final

Mayfield Bowling Club No.1 withstood a late fightback from the Kahibah Sports Cannons to book a place in the Grand Final. At one point Mayfield looked like they may secure a 3-0 result but Kahibah dug deep to take it to a decider. In the final game Kahibah can count themselves unlucky with the balls cruelly favouring Mayfield but at the end of the night the result reflected a strong performance by Mayfield who seemed to cope with the pressure a little better than Kahibah. Due to the NDBSA AGM being held at Kahibah Sports next week the Grand Final will be held on the 7th of March at a venue to be determined. Good luck to both finalists.

6-Red finals update

Last night Minor Premiers Cessnock Comets defeated Mayfield Bowling Club No.1 without their in-form No.1 Michael North, to advance to the Grand Final. In  the minor semi Kahibah Sports Canons defeated the Mayfield Bowling Club No.2 in a hard fought battle.
