Malta Billiards Championship

Paul Mifsud (Senglea S.C.) confirmed his superiority over his fellowcountrymen
by taking the Malta Billiards Championship for an
impressive 25th time at the MBSA Snooker Centre, Rabat, on Thursday
13th June. In the four-hour final he overwhelmed Publius Grech (La
Valette B.C.) 1456-788. In a consistent display, he returned a match
average of 20.2 despite making only one century (151). Mifsud had
earlier made the highest break in the championship with a 243 in the
qualifying group stages.

Both the finalists had won their previous round matches in a very
convincing manner, Mifsud defeating Frans Mintoff (La Valette B.C.)
1432-557, while Grech had overcome youngster Duncan Bezzina
(Senglea S.C.) 1166-570.
