Another fine win for Scott in Wales

Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Uk World Today -

PERTH’S Scott Don­ald­son is into the third round of the Co­ral Welsh Snooker Open af­ter beat­ing Mark King 4-2 in Cardiff.

Scott was twice pegged back af­ter lead­ing 1-0 and 2-1 be­fore go­ing on to win the fi­nal two frames.

The 22-year-old for­mer Perth High School pupil ear­lier had a 4-1 suc­cess over Jack Lisowski.

Mark Davis staged a stun­ning come­back to beat four-time win­ner Ron­nie O’Sul­li­van.

The 44-year-old looked set to be white­washed when he trailed O’Sul­li­van 3-0 but a nerve­less break of 81 helped him drag the match back level be­fore claim­ing a 4-3 vic­tory in the de­cider.

Fel­low veter­ans King and An­thony Hamil­ton have al­ready clinched their first rank­ing ti­tles this sea­son and Davis said he now sees no rea­son why he can­not fol­low their ex­am­ples.

He said: “Mark and An­thony have been around a long time.

“You’ve just got to be per­sis­tent and keep go­ing, and go out and do it for your­self.”

On a day of shocks Neil Robert­son was beaten 4-3 by Lee Walker while Shaun Mur­phy, Marco Fu and Liang Wenbo also lost.

World cham­pion Mark Selby avoided the same fate but only af­ter twice hav­ing to come from be­hind to over­come Mike Dunn 4-2.
