Match Report
Deciding Frame: John Fountain 20-64 Dave Bolton

Good close Plate final at BCI last night with the two teams only being separated after a deciding frame.

Andy Diacopoulos and John Fountain shared the opening frames before Adam Clift gave Welcome Institute a 2-1 lead with a good potting display against Jason Turner. Both Craig Greensmith and Ryan Cooper played very well in their frames to turn the match in Oakleigh Lodge's favour at 3-2.  Dave Bolton then won an important 6th frame against Clint Broome to force the match into a decider.

The deciding frame was a very cagey encounter between Dave Bolton and John Fountain with the former potting some great long balls to break the very good safety battles. Dave gradually gained the upper hand and finally had John at snookers required stage which ensured Welcome Institute the KO Plate to go along with their league championship.

Very well played to both teams on the night in a match that was played in good spirit.

Big thankyou to Pete Trout and BCI for hosting the final.
