It was a tough competition for the lead in the minor singles match up at Wallerawang.
The Wallerawang Sports Club’s minor singles has been decided with victory going to Barry Jackson.
Playing against Jeff Howden it was Jackson who made a good start leading 5-1 but Howden was holding his own as he went to a 10-7 lead.
The scores were level on 14 all.
Jackson made the break to hit the front 23-17.
Leading 27-18 Jackson looked to have the game won but Howden fought back to trail 26-29.
Jackson kept his head and picked up the shots needed to win 31-26.
An interesting point to this win: Barry becomes the third generation of Jacksons after his grandmother Mary and father Steve to win a singles title with the wins coming about every ten years.
