Causier proves final roadblock for battling Hirst

EBOS Bradford Open billiards finalists Mark Hirst of Bradford

BRADFORD potter Mark Hirst made the final of the latest English Billiards Open Series event at Cue Gardens.

The weekend competition boasted the world champion and world No 1 Peter Gilchrist, as well as three other members of the world’s top ten.

Hirst won his group on Saturday and progressed to the decider on Sunday – where he went down by an incredible 1448-65 to world No 2 Dave Causier, who overwhelmed all his opponents to take his umpteenth Bradford Open title.

Bradford ace Hirst was not the only one to suffer against someone whose lowest score over the two days was 733, while the lowest high break he recorded in a match was 201.

The highest break of the event was 709, also by Causier, in his quarter-final against Gilchrist, who he beat 809 (709, 58) to 562 (51, 309, 192).

The score in the final was harsh on Hirst, who had performed superbly all weekend. But with Causier making breaks of 489, 605, 158 and 149 in just four visits, there was little Bradford’s former professional could do.

Stephen Kershaw won two of his four games in the group stages but, having been on the wrong end of two heavy defeats against top-ranked players, just missed out on qualification on points difference.

Lady luck smiles on Bradford in shock win

BILLIARDS

Paul Devitt won 200-197 for the Billiard side.

BRADFORD came away with a shock 4-3 win at defending champions Leeds in the Yorkshire Inter-District Billiards League.

Bob Patterson of Leeds and Paul Devitt traded 20-plus breaks throughout in a tight game but a bit of luck at the end saw the Bradford potter home 200-197.

County player Jonathan Bagley fired in breaks of 37, 33 and 35 to beat Steve Wilman 200-122 before Bradford captain Stephen Kershaw started with a 45 to pull some of the 75 aggregate back and led Dave Barker 98-16.

Barker got his potting game going but at 172-92 it still looked like Bradford might manage a 5-2 victory.

However, breaks of 28 and 40 got Barker back into it and Kershaw was happy to get over the line 200-189 for a 4-3 scoreline against a Leeds team who had not dropped a point in their first two matches.

Kershaw and Devitt are in action again at Cue Gardens on Sunday in the regional qualifying competition for the Grand Masters. The event starts at 11am and matches are 90 minutes long.

Wilman holds nerve to seal billiards win for Bradford

image_6_171Right on Cue

BRADFORD’S billiards team got their Yorkshire Inter-District League season off to a positive opening with a 5-2 success at Huddersfield No 2.

John Ingleby gave Huddersfield a flying start with a break of 54 and, after Paul Devitt had pulled most of the points back, added a further break of 41.

At this point the host player looked to be heading for a big win but Devitt hit back strongly late in the game with a 34 break of his own and only missed out by 200-182.
