Hard Lines for Oliver as Lisowski hits form

Gloucestershire Echo - - SPORT -

JACK Lisowski was in fine form as he romped to a 5-0 win over Oliver Lines in the China Cham­pi­onship qual­i­fiers in Barns­ley.

The Church­down man, ranked 11 in the world, has breaks of 50-plus in ev­ery frame as he swept aside practice part­ner Lines.

He had his high­est break, a 77, in the opener and fol­lowed up with 56, 65, 67 and 50 to reach the fi­nal stages in Guangzhou next month, where he faces Daniel Wells in the last 64.

Rob Milkins missed out as he let a 3-0 lead slip to go down 5-4 against Sam Craigie.

The Glouces­ter man won a tight first frame then knocked in a 67 break to make it 2-0 and won the third frame 73-0.

Milkins had a break of 57 in frame four but lost it on the black and Craigie took ad­van­tage with breaks of 80 and 51 to level the match,

He then went 4-3 in front but Milkins pro­duced a 102 break to force the de­cider - but Craigie’s break of 72 sent him through.
