Inbetweeners clinched their first Ballymena Towers Pool League title in some style.
The Minnesota Snooker Club-based side wrapped up their maiden triumph by defeating outgoing champions Michelin Masters 4-2.
With the title within touching distance, the league leaders showed no signs of nerves early on, with Gareth Rowe beating Jimmy Knowles by a 2-0 scoreline.
David Armstrong levelled the match score with a win in straight frames over Lee Wright before Masters took the lead when Alan Armstrong had a 2-1 win over Gary Ormandy.
This set back seemed to spur the Inbetweeners on and in the next game Paul Francey had a 2-0 win over Brian Hanna to level the match score.
In the fifth game Brian Hannaway recorded a win in straight frames over Henry Eagleson which included an eight-ball clearance in the opening frame.
Phil Houston’s straight frames win over Rick McMaster clinched the victory which secured the title for Inbetweeners.
POM - Brian Hannaway.
There was one other match in the top half of the table, with Connolly’s ‘A’ defeating Diamond Dazzlers 4-2.
Don McKeown put Connolly’s ahead with a hard fought 2-1 win over Malcolm Graffin, after losing the first frame and Dean Dunlop doubled the Dunvale side’s lead with a straight frames win over Brendan O’Mullan.
Diamond pulled one back through Robert Artt but wins from Pat McAnally (Snr) and Gary Clarke took Connolly’s into an unassailable 4-1 lead, before Ian Boal grabbed a second point for Dazzlers. POM - Gary Clarke.
