Snooker

Peter Bromby won the Miller Snooker Tournament last Saturday, but he was almost eliminated in the semis.

Bromby was up against Maurice Hawkins in the first of two semi-finals and went down to defeat. With his back to the wall, he came won the next two games to advance to the final. Stewart Greenslade faced off against Mike Zimmerman in the other semi-final with Greenslade taking the first game.

Zimmerman wanted to write his own heroic comeback story and took the second game to level things up. But it wasn’t meant to be as Greenslade held on to win the rubber match.

Bromby then defeated Greenslade in three straight games in the finals. The Sandys Boat Club man won 47 to 35. 47 to 26 and 59 to 34.
