Northern Ireland champion,
Davy Clegg, won the latest National Open at Morton Community Centre. He beat Stephen Rodgers 3-0 in
the final, after eliminating old rival, Kenny Beggs, on
shots in the semi, following a 2-2 draw.
Surprise package of the
day was Peter Morrison, who qualified unbeaten from a
tough group, behind Beggs but ahead of Barry Spence,
before losing narrowly to the experienced Stephen Rodgers
in the semi-final. An excellent performance also by
Rodgers, to reach his first Open final, having earlier
beaten Clegg to top his group.
Beggs got the better of Clegg in the Veterans,
beating him 3-0 in the Final, following a marathon 5-4
shoot-out against Alistair Morrison in the semi, which
required 12 shots from each player before they could
eventually be separated.
Andrew Morrison won the Under-19 trophy, which
was played as a 4-player round robin. Peter Morrison was
2nd, Judith Morrison finished 3rd and John Hughes,
competing in his first tournament, was 4th.
Barry Spence beat Alistair Morrison 2-1 with a
golden goal in the Plate Final.
