Per­fect Day as Cao beaten in Gi­bral­tar

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - RUGBY UNION -

SNOOKER: Ryan Day pro­duced a clin­i­cal per­for­mance to beat Cao Yu­peng 4-0 in the ManBetX Gi­bral­tar Open fi­nal and win his sec­ond rank­ing tour­na­ment.

Day beat Fang Xiong­man and Joe Perry, both 4-1, be­fore edg­ing past Scott Don­ald­son 4-3 to reach the fi­nal, while Cao claimed the scalp of for­mer world cham­pion Stu­art Bing­ham and ended the ca­reer-best run of Lee Walker at the semi-fi­nal stage.

There was no let-up from Day as breaks of 58, 72 and 100 put him in com­mand in the best-of­seven fi­nal.

He duly wrapped up the next frame as well to add to last June’s Riga Masters in what is prov­ing the best sea­son of his near 20-year ca­reer.

On Satur­day, Day had beaten Dron­field am­a­teur Oliver Brown 4-1, while Sh­effield’s Adam Duffy lost by the same score­line to Perry.
