Under 18s European

Liam Davies continued his dominance of this seasons junior tournaments in last Sunday's Under 18's European Qualifier at. Redz Snooker Club in Cwmbran by beating Ollie Briffett-Payne 3 frames to Nil in the final.

Earlier in the day Liam had beaten Luke James 3 - 0, Rhys Morgans 3- 1 and Ryan Bowgen 3- 1.
Ollie had equally difficult progress in his half of the draw earning a 3.-1 win against Olly Bridle who had come through in a very close match 3- 2 against Jamie Reader who played some solid snooker.

In the semi final Ollie came up against Bradley Tyson who had shown that he meant business by beating Jacob Boyle 3 - 1 with the help of a 57 break which was the highest of the day until the final. Bradley had also despatched the improving Dainton Barrass with a scoreline of 3 - 0 although the match was closer than the scoreline suggests.

In the final Ollie pulled out some outstanding long pots with good position to lead in the 1st frame by 25 points with one red left, having potted this last red he attempted a tricky brown into the yellow pocket only to see it wobble in the jaws leaving Liam perfect position on the yellow. Liam grabbed this opportunity and crafted a lovely clearance. The second frame was a little more clear cut with Liam compiling a fine 62 break to win it comfortably. The 3rd frame was a bit nervy with both players playing some great shots but breaking down and not being able to create any big differnce in the scoreline, Liam ran out the winner of this frame as well and consoildated his number 1 ranking of this age group.
