Deciding leg needed to separate Nottingham and Leicester
A Leicester team captained by Ant Moore went head to head with Nottingham Snooker Team on Sunday afternoon. Leicester boasts some quality players so it was always going to be a tough match for Nottingham.
The match was played at Phoenix Cue Sports, Eastwood and teams were made up of 6 players. As Nottingham were the home side, our players stayed on the same tables throughout and the Leicester players rotated around the tables, playing one frame against each competitor.
The match kicked off at midday and after the first leg the match was level at 3-3.
A good second leg for Nottingham gave them a 7-5 lead.
Nottingham’s lead was short lived as Leicester won the third leg 4-2 to level the match at 9-9.
After four legs the match was still level at 12-12.
Despite an excellent win for Wayne Martin over Kieran Brighton, still nothing could separate the two teams with the scores level at 15-15 going into the sixth leg.
The sixth leg saw Nottingham’s Joe Reynolds and Steve Butler finally win their first frames whilst Nav Hussain made it six wins from six to ensure that the match was still level at 18-18.
The captains had already decided prior to the match that if a deciding leg was required, they would sit out and let the other ten players face off to decide the match.
The players were matched according to their form on the day and it was the Leicester boys who came out on top 4-1. Everyone really enjoyed this team challenge match which was fun, friendly and competitive.
