Willie Lucas Super 7s

Well done to Davy McGurn's 147 Pool Team. The Omagh lads lifted the NIPA 2013 Willie Lucas Super 7s trophy which was played in The Primacy Sports Bar, Bangor on Sunday 5th May to add to their 2013 Interleague success. Their hardest part of the day was a tough group stage from which they only qualified via a head to head result. Waiting for 147 in the Final were Crumlin who had won Group A and who had also won a titanic Semi Final against Primacy which went to a play off frame after finishing level at 7-7. James McGarrell was the man of the moment sending his team in to the Final. But The 147 weren't going to be denied and steamrolled through the final in convincing style to collect the trophy and the £350 winners prize. Nathan Todd was top of the pots scoring 5/5.

Andy Arbuthnot's Rockers Pool Team from the Carrick League won the Plate Competition, amazingly coming from 6-1 down in the Final to beat Castle, also from Carrick, by 8-6.

Well done to Rockers and Castle Captains Andy Arbuthnot and Derek Whiteside who agreed before the Plate Final to donate the £50 winners prize to the NI Specials in their bid to take a team to the 2013 Nations Cup in Malta.
