Wick & District Summer Pool League Winners
31st July 2014
Suzanne Carter's Camps Bar "1" team have won the 2014 Wick & District Summer Pool League Championship after defeating last years winners Queens Hotel 8-7 in the final. After four extremely close frames the finalists were tied at 2-2 in the early stages, but Shane Honeyman defeated Scott Risbridger 2-0 to give Camps "1" a 4-2 lead.
Queens captain Perry Campbell took charge of the next two frames with some impressive potting to level the match once again at 4-4. The defending champions would win two of the next three frames with Campbell playing an instrumental part. Dave McGillivray and Shane Honeyman battled hard in the next two frames to help Camps go 7-6 ahead, but Tam Sutherland played well to level it at 7-7 to take the match into the deciding frame.
Mark Alexander and Perry Campbell faced off in the final frame, and tension was certainly a factor as both players would fail to capitalize on great opportunities to seal the win. In the end it was Alexander who would sink the black ball with authority to clinch the title for Camps Bar "1".
Camps Bar "2" scored an 8-3 win against Retro "1" in the third place play-off match. Ryan Carter knocked in an 8-ball clearance in the opening frame which won him the award for the player with the most total clearances. Both sides played some great pool in a fast paced, high quality match.
Shane Honeyman and Ryan Carter won all of their games on the final night and would end the season with an identical record. Both players were awarded joint player of the season for the 2014 campaign. The award for most improved player went to Retro's Andrew Edwards, and Mark Alexander (Camps "1") won best newcomer.
