McHugh pulls off Supa success against Todd; SNOOKER.

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.

Any hopes the North Tynesider had of winning the next, however, were brought to an early conclusion after McHugh gave away another 21 points in a series of fouls and misses to hand Todd the frame 83-39 and a 2-0 lead.

Having had no luck or run of the balls in the two previous sets McHugh's series of small runs topped by a frame-winning 37 were enough to clinch the third 76-56 and reduce the arrears.

With his confidence now on a high, McHugh's early single visit to the table of 74 earned him a deciding-frame shootout which he went on to win 61-37 with a dead half-century to claim the winner's PS100 first prize.

McHugh's 3-1 defeat of local cueist Robbie Purdham in the last four not only included a second-frame 90 but also earned him another PS10 for the highest break of the day - a superb 102.

Todd was made to fight all the way before coming home a 3-2 deciding-frame victor over Johnnie Watson.
