All-Stars go out in a ‘baize’ of glory

Ballymena & District Snooker League

The Ballymoney Triangle All-Stars sealed the league championship when they travelled to hosts Parochial Lions.

They came away with a 3-1 games win, going out in a blaze of glory in the final match of the season.

The first encounter came when Melvin Graham had a two frames straight win, coming from 32 points behind to win the second frame, while Aidy McGonigle, after losing the first frame, took the last two frames in championship style.

The third game saw Tommy Hargy romp home in two straight frames, while captain Sammy Walker was beaten by the same margin.

This was no doubt a good performance by the whole team over the league campaign and a first win for the Triangle Snoker Club in the Ballymena & District Snooker League in their first season.

The most consistent player for the All-Stars was Danny Tweed, who won six out of six played.

Team: D Tweed, Coleraine; L McConaghie, Bushmills; M Graham, Ballymoney; S Walker (capt), Bendooragh; A McGonigle, Coleraine; T Hargy, Ballymoney.
