Hopkinson Plate final was Leicester Street versus Wibsey Liberal In what was an excellent Final with plenty of support for both teams.
The final got underway with the first 4 frames and it was Chris Richards (L.st) versus I Carradice (Wbsy) and on the other table Tony Dawson (L.st) Versus Tom Bell (Wbsy) it was Wibsey who piled on the pressure winning 3 of the first 4 frames at the halfway stage.
Leicester Street was 38 behind with 4 frames left to play, Steve Casey (L.st) took on Damian Gallagher (Wbsy) and the other table was Andy Chisolm (L.st) versus Mark Hirst (Wbsy) with Wibsey taking the first frame of each games.
Wibsey went 33 in front of Leicester Street with two frames remaining, and it was Leicester Streets Steve Casey who won their 2nd frame by 22 to leave them only 11 behind Wibsey going into the final frame.
Well into the final frame of the evening and the scores all level overall in what was a nervous & tense frame, a untimely mistake by Andy Chisolm left the pink to which billiard champion Mark Hirst held his nerve to pot both pink & black too claim the final in a tense finish.
Winners: Wibsey Liberal
Thanks for all who attended and well done to both teams.
