Chandlers Ford Open Series Result 26/09/15

Nine-year-old Harry Wilson had one of those days to remember. On Saturday morning, the left-hander from Havant compiled a personal best seven-ball break of 22 against his twin, Lewis, in the Eastleigh & District Under-19 League and still lost the frame – but secured the Division 2 title.

 

On his debut in the Open Series in the afternoon, Harry, receiving a 57-point handicap, beat 40-year-old former Town Champion and current England pool international Mark Benzey 2-1.

 

However, he was cut down to size in the next round by his tree surgeon dad Steve.

 

Anthony Rice beat Connor Benzey 2-1 on a re-spotted black in a highly entertaining and, thankfully, quick final. Connor climbed to second place, 12 points behind Ryan Hughes.

 

Stat of the day: Anthony Rice recorded seven of the 13 breaks of 30 or more scored today.
