MECC Vs Sandy Club Snooker Night 16/5/14 Report

22 May 2014 8:20 AM | Matthew Troy (Administrator)

Results Snooker Challenge MECC v. Sandy – held @ Sandringham Frid 16th May 2014

Our team went to Sandringham buoyant - despite the last-minute withdrawal of Paul Abel through sickness.

The team:


Adam Hollyock

Nigel Lowe

Michael Edwards

Chris Bussau


Jules Cole/ Mathew Kirk

Alex Wright/ Steve Byrne

Prior to the game Ted, the Sandringham captain, requested to have time limits on the games.

I asked for 45 minutes, but agreed to allowing Ted to put his requested time limit of 40 minutes.

Certain members of our team disagreed with this decision, but it was too late to change.

Adam & Michael were the 1st two games on the tables

Adam played well against their no.1 player but was beaten in a completed game

Michael was behind most of his game, but dug deep and won his match in a close one

Nigel & Chris played the next two games

Nigel was well behind but fought back to be only one point down (pink & black still on table) when the timer went, meaning a loss

Chris was ahead by a good margin all of the game, but was snookered, and fell behind just as the timer went (blue, pink & black still on table) meaning a loss

The two doubles were the last to be played – we needed both to win, in order to force a decider

Alex & Steve teamed together, and playing very well as a team – won their game easily

Jules & Kirky had nothing but bad luck in their game – several fouls & snookers meant a loss – they too were timed-out when making a comeback.

The final result was a 2 – 4 loss

As Captain, FULL responsibility is taken by me, for the loss.

- both with the decision regarding timed games, and losing an un-loseable singles game.

The Boys all played very well, and we would have had the win, we feel - had the games been allowed to be played out.

The night was, as always a very enjoyable one

The drive home would have been a lot better though, with the Cup in hand!!

We now look to Preliminary Finals night in September when Sandy come to Mt Eliza

We confidently assure our members – they will leave WITHOUT the Cup!!
