Trim, Grant and Roberts to vie for title on Sunday
Keith Moseley Memorial Billiards…
The Keith Moseley Memorial Billiards Tournament will conclude on Sunday, but three players have qualified to seek honours after the opening round ended last Sunday at the Mackenzie Sports Club.
It was a day when two former top Linden players failed to advance; and another, who had won a previous tournament, was unable to get past his opponents.
In the second tournament this year, Rupert Da Costa, who was victorious in the Marlon Pearson Tournament earlier this year, fell to Stephen Grant 100-67; and there were other notable wins in that Avery Trim eliminated Haroon Bacchus 100-79; Troy Roberts proved better that former top player Robert Langevine, and Godwin Primo stopped past champion Hardcourt Warde 100-75.
In the quarterfinals, Roberts halted Primo 100-48; and Trim, who had a top break of 26, ended the hopes of Ellis Noel 100-53.
Come Sunday, the proverbial three-horse race would be between Trim, Roberts and Grant. The three-way playoff is set for 17:00hrs at the MSC.
Before the competition, Hardcourt Warde, who had played many battles with the late Keith Moseley, presented Roberts — a member of the MSC Management Committee — with a set of billiards chalks.
