The 3rd Ladies ranking event took place in Q’s S.C.,Clondalkin on Sunday 25th November. Michelle French played Sandra Bryan in the q-finals. Sandra was in good form for the whole match; she never really allowed Michelle to get into it; and although Michelle won the 2nd frame, Sandra ran out the winner of this match 3-1 quite comfortably. Sandra then faced number 2 Claire Mill in the semi’s. There was not a lot to pick between these two on the day, but Sandra kept her nerve better thsn Claire and also won this match 3-1, to put herself in her 1st final of the season. The other semi seen Michelle Sherwin take on Treasa Keegan. Treasa was in her best form of the season, but she was unlucky to catch Michelle also on one of her better days. It was a freeflowing match with consistent scoring by each player, but Michelle won the match 3-0 on the day. The final was very much a one-sided affair, as Michelle hit a purple patch and was potting at almost every visit to the table. Michelle was sitting on a good well worked 33 in the 2nd frame and looked set to make a really good break, when she left herself an inch short on the black,leaving herself a much tougher pot thank expected which she missed. Allthough Sandra played well and had some good opportunities in the 3rd frame, Michelle proved too stong today and won the match comfortably 3-0, to take her 3rd title of the season. Many thanks to Chris & Peter in Q’s and also a big thanks goes to Dualta for making sure we were nice and warm.
