Under 16 N.I Championship

U16 N.I Championship
Sunday 6th April saw the latest N. Ireland junior tournament. It was the turn of the U16s at Antrim 147 club and with a decent turn of players it was the two top seeds Declan Duff and Eamon Ferris progressing through to the semi-finals along with Daniel Nixon and the much improved Connor Morgan. In the first semi-final Connor Morgan started off the better winning the first frame but top seed Declan stormed through the next 3 frames to win . The second semi was a tighter affair, when the match was 2 -1 to Eamon, Daniel had a black to make it 2-2 but eamon snatched it to win 3-1.

The best of 5 final saw Declan race into a 2 – 0 lead and it was looking like a one sided affair but Eamon battled back to make the match 2 -2. In the decider the match could have went either way but Declan came through to maintain his winning run in junior tournaments to lift the N. Ireland U16 title.
