MECC Vs Sandy Club 6/5/16 

Sandringham Club  2 wins

MECC                        4 wins

The Silverware is BACK in the Mount Eliza Country Club!!

The MECC Team

Declan Gogarty, Chris Bussau, Michael Edwards, Nigel Lowe, Steve Byrne, Greg Shenton, Adam Hollioak & Phil Hughes

1/ singles ………….Declan      (57)   defeated Bob     (37)

A very professional and calculated game by Declan. Behind early, he went ahead with a very good snooker & some fine pots. The lead was not massive, and Bob made a determined comeback - but Declan snuffed him out on the colours.

2/ singles…………..Chris         (44)   defeated Ted      (38)  

Mt Eliza were 19 points ahead going into the colours - Ted potted yellow; green; brown; blue and pink, to go 1 point ahead. A fortuitous (team members have used other adjectives!) black into the middle pocket from the back cushion, sealed the win for Mt Eliza.

3/ singles………...Michael      (34)     lost to Bill         (69)  

Behind early, Michael made a spirited comeback with a 25 break - but Bill broke away again & won comfortably.

4/ singles………….Nigel          (58)   defeated Doc     (25)

It was the Doc’s Birthday, but Nigel spoiled the party with a very competent potting display.

\The Doc is always capable of a comeback, but Nigel played too well to allow that to happen.

5/ doubles..   Steve & Greg      (35)   defeated Peter & Richard    (22)  

Facing two difficult opponents, the game was very tense and even early-on. Steve & Greg then created a small cushion on the scoreboard. The lengthy game was timed out, due to a restriction imposed by Sandringham - Mt Eliza needed only one more ball to seal the win anyway.

6/ doubles..   Adam & Phil       (37)      lost to Justin & Gary           (45)

This was a good match, with Justin playing exceptionally well. Adam & Phil stayed in the game with safe play & some good potting. Needing the last two colours to win - the game was lost, when Sandringham potted the pink ball to go 8 points ahead.

It was a really great night on Friday – obviously enhanced by the win.

Thanks also go out to Jim Byrne, Tony Byrne, Jules Cole & George - - - - , who travelled to Sandringham to support the team

CONGRATULATIONS to ALL players on the winning team!!

And to those players who missed out on selection:

It is the fierce competition for places in the side, that has helped create this win.

The Cup is back in it’s rightful spot, after too-many years away.

Let’s make sure that it STAYS here!
