Andrew Doherty Wins DBSL Series 4

A big congratulations to Andrew Doherty, of Willows A, on winning the fourth instalment of the DBSL Handicap Series, held in Pioneers Snooker Club on Saturday. Andrew narrowly beat Niall Lawless, of Pioneers Black, in a tense decider to take the match and title 2-1.

Andrew got off to a good start, with a fine break of 60 in his first frame, beating newcomer Adam McDonagh 2-0 in his last 16 match before beating Tony O’Connor, of Glenalbyn Blue, 2-1 in his Quarter Final Match.

Andrew faced a tough George Murphy, of Roadstone B, in the semi final. The match was close and led to a 1-1 decider, but Andrew proved too strong, and took the match in the end with a 2-1 win.

Niall Lawless had a great run to his first DBSL Series Final, beating Andrew Harvey 2-0 in the last 16 and beating Michael Kearns 2-0 in the Quarter Final, before taking on fellow Pioneers Black team mate Peter Conroy, and beating him 2-1 to progress to the final.

As always, DBSL would like to thank Tournament Director Niall Lawless, and the Pioneer Snooker Club for their fine hospitality throughout the day.
