McCullagh 'Masters' Minici
Peter McCullagh (WA) has claimed his 2nd Australian Masters Snooker title, defeating Joe Minici (NSW) 5-2 in the 2019 Championship.
The event was staged at Mingara Recreation Club from 2nd to 5th May, which was the 12th consecutive year this event has been successfully staged at the popular NSW Central Coast venue. Full results can be accessed on the ABSC at www.absc.com.au (tournament results).
A total of 52 entries (11 inter-state) battled it out for this year’s Masters’ title and spectators were thoroughly entertained. The tables played superbly throughout with players compiling some excellent breaks including 109 by Rob Elsley and 118 by Joe Minici. The high break prize was eventually taken out by Glen Wilkinson who recorded a brilliant 119 clearance during his 7-frame semi-final loss to McCullagh.
McCullagh now becomes eligible to represent Australia at the IBSF World Masters Snooker Championship in Turkey later this year and we wish him well in his endeavours.
Congratulations to all involved in making this year’s Masters a success, including Tournament Director Ross Wyard and the referees who officiated throughout the 4 days of the Championship, but especially to the Mingara directors, management, staff and members - whose support, assistance and fabulous facilities make this event possible.
