HAYWARD EDGES TIGWELL IN NEWPORT POOL THRILLER
NEWPORT (Shropshire): Telford’s Charlie Hayward reached the semi-finals of the Newport Pool Open with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Graham Tigwell at his opponent’s home venue, the King’s Head.
The match went to the tie-break frame and Tigwell looked as though he would prevail when he potted the black, but the white also ran into the pocket to gift the Telford player a place in the last four.
Stafford’s Neil Dale continued his run of excellent form to confirm his semi-final place in a one-sided contest against Newport’s Greg Quinn at the Railway Tavern. Dale dominated the match with some dogged safety play to force Quinn into a corner in three straight frames.
The draw for the semi-finals of the Newport Pool Open will take place at Newport Legion during a pool invitational match on Saturday evening. All outstanding doubles semi-finals and the quarter and semi-finals of the singles need to be played by Wednesday, October 10th.
