Big up to the girls in the singles today, every match was absolutely fantastic.
Yvonne Ewing lost to Kirsty Davies 5-4 after coming back from 4-1 down in the quarter finals. Yvonne showed all her quality and experience to pull the match back to 4-4. Kirsty was on top form tho as she won the decider, showing great composure for a little nappy wearing brat......;)
Sarah Trudgett beat Nikki Correa from Gibraltar, she went through to the semi finals to play Leanne Evans from Wales, who beat Sabrina Brunet in a rather clinical fashion.
Elaine Campbell provided possibly the mentalist winning black after a wee falling out of position. A rather nice wee double off the bottom cushion into the middle from a jaunty angle. She beat Amanda Watson of England 5-2.
In the semi finals, defending champion Leanne Evans beat Sarah Trudgett 6-4 after Sarah started a comeback.
Elaine Campbell faced 16 year old Kirsty Davies in an enthrallling semi final that had the crowd entranced. Elaine potted yet another stunt black out of a snooker to take a 1-0 lead before Kirsty surged into a 4-1 lead with some stunning pool. Elaine took another frame before Kirsty pulled out a nice finish to go 5-2 up after Elaine missed a black out of a snooker. Elaine was up against it, but she had a large support that included her own Scottish team mates, English girls and the French team all cheering her on and singing. Campbellinho took the match to 5-5 with quality attacking play. Unfortunately, our hero from Glenboig missed her chance in the final frame leaving Kirsty to finish the match off 6-5.
Commiserations to Elaine, a great show of pool and about time you were at the business end of a big competition again.
Congrats to Kirsty and Leanne, we should be in for a cracking final tomorrow as Leanne goes for 2 titles in a row and Kirsty attempts to become the youngest player ever to win the World title.
