SUMMER TEAM MAIN KNOCKOUT FINAL
Played on Sunday 11th September 2016 @Kennys Sportsbar
INSTITUTE SC 4-1 MORRISMAN ISLANDERS
Newcomers Institute SC won the 2016 Summer League after seeing off the challenge of the Morrisman Islanders. The Final was played in front of a good turnout and it was the captains of both teams who started off preceedings. Rob Wharne (Institute) was drawn against Lee Haidarovic (Morrisman) and it was Haidarovic who started strong. He broke and looked favourite to clear until he left a tricky black and unfortunately missed. Wharne showed his experience and stifled Haidarovic game and eventually took his opportunity to pot a long black into the corner to put the Institute 1-0 up.
Russ Brittan (Institute) was next on and was set to play Rob Mullins (Morrisman). Brittan broke and the game followed a pattern of tactical play which resulted in limited opportunities. However it was Mullins who siezed his chance and he sunk the black and thus levellled the scores.
Daz Pountney (Institute) was next in Frame Three and was paired against Alan Alldritt (Morrisman). Alldritt broke and this time after a dry break it was Pountney who took the inititive and controlled the frame. However Alldritt tried to put himself back into the frame and looed in a good position until a missed chance let Pountney in and he duly took his chance and give the Institute a 2-1 lead.
Mark Billingsley (Institute) broke off in Frame Four against Simon Davies (Morrisman) and the frame was an attacking one with both players going for it from the off. Davies had a great opportunity but broke down with 2 balls to go. This let Billingsley in and he didnt need a 2nd chance as he cleared the table to give the Institute a 2 frame lead.
The start of the 2nd half saw Rob Wharne take on Sean Alldritt (Morrisman). Alldritt broke but unfortunately went in off the break. This then gave Wharne an ideal chance to snatch glory. He then showed his fine form and cleared the table in one visit and bring home the Summer League Title for the Institute SC.
