Stawell Eight Ball finalists decided

Stawell Eight Ball Association grand finalists are now decided, with Brix Bandits and Nash Naturals the teams to progress.

The A grade finals have run a little differently to the script with the second best team throughout the regular season falling short in the preliminary final.

Cues would have gone into the match favourites, but never looked likely once Brix Bandits took four of the opening six games.

Cues pegged one game back in the doubles section and had it back on a level playing field by the last game.

Zach Blachford and Shane Sangar were left to battle it out for their spot in the final.

Sanger held his nerve, to win the chance to play for the title this week.

In B grade Nash Naturals also pulled off an upset defeating D'Gaf.

Nash Naturals started poorly in their preliminary final winning just two of the first six games.

Luckily for them they combined well in the doubles and were victorious in all three matches.

Heading into the final round of singles Naturals had a one game advantage, only to drop the first two.

Naturals needed to win three of the next four if their season was to remain alive.

Ben Dougal, Bill Parcel and Sam Sharma each won their final singles matches, seeing Nash Naturals winners.

The final round of singles between Bob Disher and Mick Raeburn was not played due to a result already being finalised.

Presentation night will be held this Friday, April 4 at the Gift Hotel following tomorrow's finals.
