"EVENT 1" ------ Tyrone U-15 Ranking Tour
Congratulations to Galvin McDermott (Omagh) who won the first Tyrone U-15 Ranking Pool Tournament last Saturday played in Q-Sports Academy Fintona when the Omagh cueist defeated Karol Galka (Fintona) in the final on a last game decider to secure victory on a 6-5 score-line.
Galvin got it tough in all his group matches and had to win a play-off match with Owen O'Brien to progress to the semi-finals where he beat young Owenie McMenamin in the semi-finals to move into the first U-15 ranking tournament final.
In the final Galvin raced into a 3-0 lead before Karol came back to lead 4-3 and 5-4 but it was Galvin who held his nerve to get over the winning line to secure a 6-5 victory and go straight into as the number one U-15 ranked player.
