HOP POLE C 4-3 Metro Bar A
Hop Pole C became Stan Bent Team KO champions for the 2nd time (previously 2008/9) after overcoming a determined Metro Bar A team in the Final.
Alan Mason (Pole) started of proceedings with a fine performance against Alan Farrow (Met Bar) to put the Hop Pole C 1-0 up.
Mick Addison (Pole) then played Dave Ashton (Met Bar) in frame 2 and after an exchange of tactical play, Addison went for the clearance and put the Hop Pole C 2-0 up.
Duncan Sunderland (Pole) took on Warren Jesney (Met Bar) in frame 3 and Sunderland looked in a good position, but an 'in off' brought Jesney in and he duly took his chance to bring the Met Bar back in at 2-1 down.
Kev Brown (Pole) was drawn against Andy Palin (Met Bar) and Brown was in complete control. Then an uncharacteristic miss on his final yellow gave Palin a chance. He took it well with a fine clearance to level the match at 2-2.
Brown was straight back on in frame 5 and this time was up against Jesney. The match started of rather cagey, but another miss by Brown let Jesney back in. It looked a straight forward finish but he left his final shot blind on the black. With a bit of fortune, the black sat up and for the first time the Met Bar were ahead, 3-2 up.
Addison was next on in frame 6 and he was up against Andy Palin. The match was showing signs of tension but Addison had other ideas, he was left a chance and after some fine positioning he left himself a long black and he nailed it and so bring the scores level at 3-3.
Mason and Farrow were paired against each other in the Final Frame. Nerves started to show as both players knew that one loose shot could mean the end. After an exchange of snookers, Farrow left one short and gave Mason a great chance. He potted a long Final red and sunk a long black into the corner to give the Hop Pole C the Stan Bent Trophy.
A great Final played in great spirit, also a great turnout of fans from both teams and a great way to end the Winter season
Thanks to Tom Vernon, Dave Whitfield and Jason Armishaw for refereeing the final. Also thank you to Kennys Sportsbar for their hospitality in providing the tables and food.
