Kalgoorlie Miner - - SPORT -

The best Gold­fields eight ball play­ers are ex­pected to flock to the Grand Boulder Ho­tel tonight for the Dax Wasley Sum­mer Closed Sin­gles com­pe­ti­tion.

Named in hon­our of the lo­cal cham­pion who rep­re­sented Aus­tralia at last year’s world ti­tles, play­ers must have played in three Thurs­day night meets dur­ing the Sum­mer sea­son.

Last year’s in­au­gu­ral tourna- ment was taken out by veteran Ja­son Dimer who beat Brian “Bee­tle” Ren­nie in the fi­nal.

Nom­i­na­tions will be taken from 5.30pm, with matches set to be­gin at 6pm.

Mean­while, in lo­cal do­mes­tic com­pe­ti­tion, Bro­ken Hill 1’s re­cent strong form con­tin­ued with a 9-8 vic­tory over Tower.

Grand Blue and White both put in solid per­for­mances to chalk up vic­to­ries over Min­ers Rest and Coun­try Club 2 re­spec­tively.

Work­ers Club 2 opened their ac­count de­feat­ing Grand Gold 11-6 in a re­sult which puts them only one game out­side the top eight.

No re­sult was recorded be­tween Bro­ken Hill 2 and Coun­try Club 1.

Sum­mer eight ball will recom­mence on Jan­uary 8 with the Grand Fi­nal to be played on Fe­bru­aryuary 19.
