It's Larne at the Double !!

Congratulations to Larne & District Pool League. They completed the "Double" at the Interleague 'B' Team event by winning both the Main event and Plate event. The Competition was held in the St Comgalls Club, Larne on Saturday 2nd May. In the Main event Carrick B1s showed their early intent to make it 4 wins in a row in the annual tournament as they dominated the group winning all 3 matches. Larne B1s just edged out Ballymena 'B' into 2nd spot which earned them a play off against Ards B1 to see who would play who in the Semi Finals. Larne won it 6-2 and edged past Coleraine 'B' in an entertaining Semi Final. In the other Semi Carrick B1s, after a slow start, stormed back to win 12-7 against North Down & Ards 'B'. In the Final, Larne edged ahead early doors and were never behind in the match, going on to secure a 17-11 win for Manager Bill McIlroy Sr.

In the Plate, Larne B2s under the guidance of Alex Irvine and Rab Wilson won an exciting final against Ballymena 'B' by 12-10. A great double for the Larne League, but what price their 'A' Team can claim glory tomorrow for what would be a unique treble. Omagh, Coleraine, Ballymena and 6 others will have something to say about that. Best of luck to all teams.
