DAVE Creedon came back from the brink of defeat to win the recent 2019 West Cork Pool Association individual’s competition.
It’s the second time that the Bantry man has captured this singles title, his previous success in 2016, and he had to work hard for this latest triumph.
In the final against Aaron Doherty, Creedon trailed 3-0 and 4-1 in the best of nine frames, and Doherty missed the black in the sixth frame to win. This opened the door for Creedon who fought his way back into the final and took it to the deciding frame, which he won.
‘I’m delighted with the win, it was a great final and I was in trouble at one point,’ Creedon admitted, as he emerged victorious after 24 of the best pool players in West Cork battled it out for the top prize.
Creedon got the better of Joe O’Donovan, Paul Foley and Kieran Doherty and 2013 winner Davey Byrne in his side of the draw en route to the final.
In recent years, the Bantry man has also won the 2018 West Cork Doubles’ title alongside Liam Cotter, while Creedon has also lost the last three West Cork Masters’ finals, so he was overdue this latest success.
