Last night eight times champion Fergal Behan succumbed to the powerhouse of Eric Goodwin 2-1 in the quarter final of the senior championship
Eric continues his fantastic run of reaching just about every semi-final in the last twenty five years
Unfortunately as discussed last year Eric has had to endure second spot on five occasions, each time to Fergal so is this his year?
The whispers in the snooker camp had started over the last few weeks that Fergal might not be able to add to his major haul of eight championships, so much so that his nickname was changed to “Tiger”
The previous night had seen another power struggle with yours truly up against Garry Lyons
Walking into the room I could see Garry had a swagger about him, he was potting well and looked confident
Nothing like a 93 break in practice over the weekend to put Garry in good spirts, I was more hopeful of getting a 39 break, I knew I was up against it
Garry started well winning the first frame and I knew I was in trouble. I was missing everything.
Fortunately I brought him down to my level, we were lucky to get a break in the teens, but like the tide on a summers evening in Dublin Bay, the tide started to turn
And so it happened frames two and three went my way.
Unfortunately that’s where my luck ended that night, got a puncture on the way home in the rain, put the spare on and that was as flat as a pancake
Still went to bed with a smile on my face though!!!!!!
All the competitions are reaching semi-final stages now
