The Mob shows they are hot shots

FOR the third year in a row Maryborough snooker team The Mob have won the Wide Bay Inter Club grand final.

But that thrill is already old news after the talented group travelled to Gympie on the weekend and defeated the top Maroochydore team by 20 frames to five.

The group, which includes Matt Powell, Dave Watts, Ron White, Ian Clarke, Jason Newhall and Tom Cordie, defeated Hervey Bay team The Hot Shots in the final, which was held at the Maryborough Dart Hall, winning eight frames to three.

Not only has the team won the last three grand finals in the Wide Bay competition, they have also won the minor premiership for three years in a row.

The games operate on a handicap, which the team was able to overcome to secure the victories.

White said the group was thrilled with its success.

He said the team wasn't expecting to win so convincingly against Maroochydore.

“We were really happy to win that,” he said.

The group took home the perpetual shield, which now has their names engraved on it.

They will have the shield until next year when they will defend their title.

White also celebrated a personal achievement this year, defeating Hot Shot player Mick Pink to win the Wide Bay Inter Club singles competition.
