The Billiards finals season began last week with Explorers being the first team to advance to the Grand Final, having defeated Scorpions 2-2 & by 17 points.
Explorers have been the benchmark for most of the season& with Broken Hill's best player Ron Merritt at the helm, they will start favourite in the final.
Best for Explorers: Ron Merritt & Ted Gasson, while Dennis Williams & Rod Netherwood were Scorpions' best.
Stickmen came out all guns blazing with a narrow but decisive 3- 0 victory over Magic in the Elimination Final.
Stickmen did well to make the finals having struggled for players throughout the season & their clash with Scorpions should be a good prelude to the Grand Final.
Best for Stickmen: Leigh Scoble, Darren Scoble & Aaron Williams. Breaks: Ron Merritt 68,41,34,32; Darren Scoble 31.
The Open Final will be held at 6:30 Monday night with Barry Delbridge v Mark Hille. Tuesday night we should see a good battle between Scorpions & Stickmen in the Prelim Final.
