THE Port Moresby and PNG Billiards and Snooker Associations ended a successful season last Wednesday that saw one player dominating in the overall trophy presentation.
Djorne Fong had proven too good this year. He had stepped up with the cue and displayed tremendous accuracy and skill over his opponents.
An delighted Fong was overwhelmed by his triumphs, however, he was not surprised at all.
Fong bagged a total of 12 awards from this year’s A grade Pacific MMI corporate snooker competition, the Port Moresby Snooker handicap challenge, Moni Plus Port Moresby Billiards open, the 2009 Alotau Snooker Open, the Bank South Pacific Port Moresby Snooker Open and the BSP major men’s competition and was also awarded the player of the year.
He dominated in the men’s division for the person with the highest break, runner-up and overall champion.
Outgoing president Howard Lahari said the sport had come a long way in Port Moresby because of the hardworking committee with more than 300 players that competed in the tournament this year.
One of the highlights of the year was the Oceania tournament held in Port Moresby that attracted players from PNG to display the best of their abilities and capabilities against professionals from around the region.
Lahari said Papua New Guineans had performed well in the Oceanic tournament and were looking forward to the Pacific Games in 2015.
Port Moresby and PNGBSA secretary Roger Wilson said “the Oceania competition proved to be the best-ever.
Wilson added that PNGBSA were looking forward to hosting the event in the next four years.
