Hig­gins sees off Wil­son chal­lenge to progress

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RACING -

JOHN HIG­GINS fi­nally shook off the chal­lenge of Kyren Wil­son to reach his sev­enth World Snooker Cham­pi­onship fi­nal af­ter a 17-13 suc­cess.

Hig­gins led from the out­set and while Wil­son kept with him ad­mirably, the Scot fi­nally com­pleted vic­tory with su­perb breaks of 100 and 98 to close out the match.

It will be Hig­gins’ sec­ond suc­ces­sive fi­nal af­ter a de­feat to Mark Selby which he found hard to re­cover from last year, and vic­tory would give him a fifth world ti­tle.
