her last shot looking like a win­ner but just miss­ing the line. Alex Thomas went on to beat Anoushka Pa­tel 10-6, Francesca Schon­feldt lost to Theo MaCann and Har­ri­son Phip­pen had a walkover, hand­ing Ger­rards Cross the vic­tory.

Shiv Pa­tel won a fiercely com­pet­i­tive shoot-out against Malt­man’s Green’s He­lena Ully­att to also de­cide the Year 4 fi­nal in Ger­rards Cross’ favour. Ge­orgie Lloyd and Emma Ser­vaes had got Malt­man’s off to a great start beat­ing Ben Viner and Tate Bowles 10-5 and 102, but Oliver Robin­son started the Cross come­back by beat­ing Shaina Nath­wani 10-6.

The Year 5/6 fi­nal saw Ja­cob Mel­lows beat brother Seb as Ger­rards Cross’ Year 6s beat their own Year 5s, which was es­pe­cially tough on Seb, who had won two shoot-outs on the way to the fi­nal.
