Monday 1st October Cup Game

The second round of the cup saw the Balconie Team play at home against the Dingwall 147A team. Tonights team was Ralph, Graham, Tony, Mark and Liam.

Mark played first, and played extremely well, however got beaten. Ralph played next and won comfortably, followed by Liam who also won. Tony was next to play and he won his game and all was looking good with the score at 3-1 to us. Graham was up next, a hard fought game which he narrowly lost, giving us the slender lead of 3-2 at the interval.

After some soup and sandwiches, a very sober Graham was first to play and unluckily potted the black a little prematurely, squaring the game at 3-3. Ralph was next up to play and won, giving us the lead again at 4-3. Mark, followed by Liam both lost their games meaning Tony had to win to force the draw and take the match to a decider. Tony won his match brilliantly, which meant the team had a choice to make as to who was going to play the decider. The choice looked a bad one when Ralph, who chose to take the responsibility, potted the white ball straight off the break. However, halfway through his initial visit to the table, Ralphs' opponent potted the black, gifting the win to the Balconie. A bit of a lucky break for the Balconie team, but overall, thoroughly deserved the win as were the better team on the night.

The semi final and final of this cup is to be played on Sunday 7th October at the Oscars Bar in Dingwall, 2pm start. The team are all fired up, but could really do with some support, so if you can pop along and support the team, they would all appreciate it.
