Author Topic: Intermediate A: Ross Wilkin 3-1 Fred Mulheron  (Read 1009 times)

Both of us were struggling a little in this match, the table was quite slow and we were getting a lot of kicks (humidity?). I can't remember the first frame too well, but I think I just stayed ahead enough for Fred to need snookers on the colours and I managed to take it.

The opposite was true of the second frame. Fred had built a lead of 32 when one red was left. I managed to get a colour with the red, then later potted the colours from the green up-to missing a VERY easy black! Fred also missed the black and after a few more shots I managed to pot it to force a re-spotted black. I won the toss and put Fred into play. He attempted a good safety shot but left it just a little short near the centre pocket. It was a thin cut but easy enough to take the frame.

Colours went safe early on in the third frame and we both started missing a lot of reds, maybe due to our frustration with the lack of easy colours. Fred gained a small lead when we got to the final colours. Again, I started to pot the colours from the green but again, missed an easy pink. Fred only needed the pink to win, and duly potted it to win this frame.

We both probably got a little worse in the last frame, missing even more chances on reds. I was only slightly in front but I only needed the last pink, while Fred needed pink and black, with the black near a cushion. After a few attempts and safety by Fred, I finally potted the pink to secure the match.
