While the rest of the world was preparing for the referendum, last Wednesday evening, the snooker fraternity around the Rock took to their cues and the green baize.
The entertainers go marching on!
In the south district, in Jumper’s Bastion, Team Queensway put up a spirited defence, and had some very close calls, but still went down five nil to the league leaders, barentertainment.net.
Kevin Dobson was beaten 11-74 by Francis Becerra and Kevin Dalli won then lost his frame 42-52, on the black ball, to Laurence Sisarello.
Tom Rooney lost to Yewhung Chin 35-66 and Peter de la Rosa went down 26-62 to Julian McGrail. Captains Eddie Newton and Sean Galligan played a cat and mouse of a frame; with Sean always edging away. Eventually Sean cleared up in bits and pieces to come away victor by 87-45 (a total of 132 points).
Sean was voted the entertainer’s man-of-the-match and Eddie the Queensway’s star man. Six points for barentertainment.net.
Due to unforeseen circumstances The Gibraltar Service Police’s ‘home’ game was played away. However, again, despite some close calls St Bernard’s Heineken managed to win by four frames to one.
Adrian Holmes beat Dylan Ballester 53-32 and the police’s star man, Heath Watson overcame Andrew Olivero 50-37. Mukesh Bakhru, the saint’s man-of-the-match, won against Ivan Viñales by 54-23 and In another ding-dong battle Harry Ward just beat Alfred Becerra 42-32; well-played both! Finally, once again going to the wire Fernando Monteverde just beat Chris Durante 50-43. A good game by all, but five points to the saints.
The game on Devils Tower went to form, almost, with the Cue Ball winning by four frames to one.
Dylan Alvez beat Elio Monteverde 56-33 and Chris Shimidzu beat Brian Garcia 45-9. Ernest Clinton beat Pepe Santos 56-32 and Jonathan Collado, the Cue Ball’s man-of-the-match, beat Adrian Navarro 49-20.
The sting in the tail came when the Astoria’s star man, Keith Correa, beat Ian McIntosh by just 37 to 32, in a very close, black ball game. Five points to the Cue Ball!
In a delayed game on Thursday night, the Astoria Too was beaten four frames to one by the Mediterranean Rowing Club.Eddie Bear went down 17-42 to Nicky Gonzalez and then Antonio Cavilla, the Astoria’s star man, beat Peter Buttigieg senior 58-18. ‘Titch’ Olivero was beaten 31-68 by the Med’s man-of-the-match and Albert Goldwin lost to Henry Vinet, 17-53. In the fifth frame Dave Smith after an unfortunate thing on the yellow ball finally lost 31-48.A useful five points for the Mediterranean Rowing Club – well played all!
