Double delight for Elise and Krissie

Congratulations to Bangor duo Elise Richardson & Krissie Cutler who are the new 2011 Northern Ireland Ladies Doubles Blackball Champions.

In the Lodge Hotel Coleraine, they battled their way through to the Final including a very close 3-2 Semi Final win over Clare Webster & Lyndsey Ruddock. Waiting for them in the Final were Newtownabbey pairing of Sara Greenberg and Debby Walker who also won a deciding frame in their Semi Final against Eadie McFeeters & Susan Graham.

Elise & Krissie raced into a 3-1 lead but their opponents kept the match alive by winning the 5th frame. But the title was soon in the bag as they secured the 6th frame to win by 4-2
