Author Topic: Intermediate Divisions KO Stage: Ross Wilkin 2-3 Ashley Bettinson  (Read 1238 times)

We both got our excuses in early as neither of us had played in over a week. It definitely showed in our play!
All frames saw the colours tied up early, very messy, little chance of decent breaks.
I did my usual trick in the 1st frame and potted from green to pink on the final colours to take it.
In the 2nd frame Ashley warmed up a little bit and the reversed happened with him taking it on the last few colours.
The 3rd frame might've been quite pivotal. I was clearing up well on the colours, but then missed THE EASIEST pink to leave Ashley needing 1 snooker. He then proceeded to get the snooker and once again, I missed an easy angle to get out of it. Ashley then cleared an easy pink and black. DOH!!!
More scrappy play with tied up colours next but felt good to catch up Ashley towards the end and pot a crucial brown and blue to level the match.
The final frame was very similar to the others UNTIL Ashley made a good 23 break, leaving me 25 behind on the last yellow. I fluffed the yellow with the rest and Ashley potted most of them to remove any doubt.
It's probably the happiest I've been to lose a match, as that PERFECTLY timed 23 break was FAR better than any play in the rest of the match put together!!
Good luck in the next round Ashley.
