Kyren Wilson 5-2 Chris Keogan
Kyren Wilson defeated Chris Keogan 5-2 to set up a quarter-final clash with Jimmy Gratton.
Wilson played almost flawlessly as he raced into a 3-0 lead. Credit to Keogan though who produced some great snooker to pull the score back to 3-2. The final two frames were much closer but Wilson was very dangerous when in the balls and he proved that little bit too strong for Keogan on the night.
Wilson was disappointed not to beat the 106 high break which Keogan set in the last round, particularly as he missed a black when on a maximum attempt. It would have been Wilson’s 10th 147 break had he made it – perhaps next time…
