In an 8-ball grand final show-stopper the Hitmen will be looking to knock off the Militia.

The Hitmen and the Militia are facing off in the grand final today.

Vice-president of the BH 8-ball Association, Leigh Scoble said the grand final was being held at 3pm at the Rising Sun.

“The two teams have five players on each side as well as some reserves,” Leigh said.

“The first team to get to the best of 15 frames wins.”

Leigh said they always have a good turn out for the grand final.

“Grand finals for the lower grades start earlier in the day from 11am and then the Super League grand final is held at 3pm,” he said.

“Militia have won the grand final for the past nine years.

“The Hitmen will be looking to knock them off their turf.”

Leigh said the Hitmen took out the Mulga team in the preliminary finals.

He said Militia had a lot of experienced players, but the Hitmen had some up and coming talent.

“The Militia will keep to their normal game plan but the Hitmen are keen for a win,” he said.

“They have excellent players - the Militia are looking forward to a challenge.

“It should be a good, tight game.”

Leigh said after the game, they hang around for a good night.

“We have some drinks and then go back to the winning team’s pub. Both teams this year have The Northern as their pub - so no doubt we will head back there,” Leigh said.

“I would encourage every one to come down and watch the games. Food will be provided.

“I would like to wish both teams the best of luck.”
