Individual Billiards Championship

The final of the Cornwall Individual Billiards Championship was played
at the SWEB Social Club, Bodmin, on Wednesday 2nd April and resulted
in a victory for Dave White (Bude SC) who defeated Steve Downing
(Redruth RBL) 800-533. White had taken an early lead with a break of
89 and stayed ahead throughout the match making additional breaks of
50, 60 and 69. Downing had breaks of 50, 65 and 74. Cecil Brown,
President of the Association, presented trophies. Ray Vassie was referee
and Peter Lawrence the marker.

In the semi-finals Steve Downing had prevailed in a close match against
Geoff Lingard, the scores having been called level at 601 before Downing
edged a victory 650-629. Dave White’s semi-final win over Chris Mitchell
was also closer than the score of 650-471 might suggest, White running
to his points with 88 unfinished.

However, one of the closest matches of the Championship had come in
the quarter-finals when Dave White defeated Charlie Gay (St. Day) by
just four points. Gay went ahead during the first half and with the help
of a 94 break, built up a lead of over 100 points. White came back with
a break of 118 but Gay edged ahead again to go within four points of
game when White secured the victory by running out with an unfinished
break of 47.
