Reigning National champions, Stephen McKinley and Davy Coulter, held their nerve when it mattered which earned them the All Saints (Tullylish), open pairs title.
The Ulster Transport boys emerged from a massive entry of 82 starters, which culminated in a nerve-tingling 8-7 win over Drumgor’s Mark Sproule and Paul Moffatt.
McKinley and Coulter pulled the game out of the fire on the final end by picking up a count of three, leaving their opponents totally deflated.
Sproule and Moffatt claimed their spot in the final courtesy of a victory over Mid Ulster’s Clarke Hill and Alan Paul, while Garvaghy Presbyterian’s Scott brothers - Dessie and Robert - were beaten by the eventual winners.
Other section winners were (skips only): Patricia Martin, Joe Beattie, Paul Canning and Dairmuid McMahon.
“The tournament was another fantastic success,” said organiser Angela Cannaway. “We were thrilled with the big entry, having 82 pairs on the starting grid.”
Meanwhile, Aidan Corrigan has successfully defended the popular 1st Dromore Presbyterian singles championship.
The Drumgor player produced a magnificent revival to defeat Lisburn’s Nikki Haire 11-7 in a thrilling final.
Corrigan found himself 7-0 in arrears before he got to grips with the game. When he did, there was just no stopping him.
Earlier, Corrigan edged home 8-6 in an equally tough semi final tie against David Morrison, from 1st Ahoghill, while Haire beat Mossley’s Eddie Crawford 7-5.
Other section winners were: Tom Lithgo, Eanas Hamilton, Ivor Armstrong and Peter Christie.
