WALKERGATE'S star potter Paul McHugh turned in a high -quality performance to outscore Stanley's Michael Todd in a deciding-frame shootout in the final of the latest Consett Supa Snooker one-day ranking handicapped event.
With little or nothing going right but still having to concede 21 points a frame, McHugh struggled to hold his game together and ended up losing the opener 76-28.
