Harrow’s Peter O’Hara Wins The 2009/10 West Closed

Peter O’Hara (Newlands) won The 2009/10 West Closed Title at SSRC this weekend by beating Owen Hadden (Giffnock) in the final on Sunday. The match was 3-0 to Peter and although he always seemed to be in charge of proceedings Owen did make life tough for him by getting a couple of good leads in the individual games, especially the 2nd.

However when he was under pressure Pistol Pete always seemed to find another nic, which left Owen wondering what he had to do to keep the pressure on. Another impressive West Closed win for Peter and his 11th Title. (pic left Peter O’Harrow!!) To see all results click here

In the ‘B’ event Norman Patterson (Wishaw) came back from 2-0 down to beat Ashley Stevenson (David Lloyd West End) in an epic 5 games (results here) and Kieran O’Neill (Whitecraigs Rugby) won the ‘C’ event final 3-1 (results here) against Maggy Dick (from SSRC).
