Sandys Boat Club and Watford to face off in league title play-off decider
The Bermuda Snooker Association League title race was blown wide open after Watford Sports Club were awarded a 5-0 walkover after opponents Royal Artillery Association were unable to field a side for the two teams final match of the season.
This allowed Watford to draw level with nearby rivals, leaders and defending champions Sandys Boat Club, meaning the two teams will have to go head-to-head in a play-off to determine the title on a date yet to be confirmed.
Sandys Boat Club squandered an opportunity to clinch the title outright after suffering a shock 4-1 defeat against hosts Warwick Workmen’s Club II in their final match of the regular season.
Meanwhile, Peter Bromby and Aaron Bean both secured their spot in the Bermuda Open Singles semi-finals.
Bromby came from behind to edge Paul Fedden 2-1 in his quarter-final match at Spanish Point Boat Club and will face either defending champion John Orr or Steven Bremar in the semi-final on April 8 at a venue yet to be confirmed.
Bean advanced with a 2-0 win over Nadanja Bailey in his quarter-final at Watford Sports Club and will face an opponent yet to be confirmed in the next round.
Advancing to the semi-finals of the Bermuda Open Doubles were the team of Tyler Moniz and Fedden and Scott Barnes and Steven Roberts.
Moniz and Fedden beat Gary Bascome and Richard Burton 2-0 in the quarter-final match at Warwick Workmen’s Club and will meet Martin Seise and Bromby in the last four at Spanish Point Boat Club next Wednesday.
Barnes and Roberts edged Billy Wotton and Orr in a closer affair at Spanish Point Boat Club to set up a semi-final showdown with the winner between Zane DeSilva and Bremar and Stewart Greenslade and Chris Dakin on a date yet to be confirmed.
Elsewhere, Warwick Workmen’s Club II remain on course for a second title after edging hosts Sandys Boat Club 3-2 in a close Mike Zimmerman Team Challenge semi-final.
Warwick’s DeSilva and Barnes sealed the deal with a dramatic victory over rivals Fedden and Seise on the final black ball.
Warwick Workmen’s Club II, who were crowned Keen Cup champions earlier this month, will now host Spanish Point Boat Club II in the final next Tuesday.
