Matt Curwood is the new WEPF World 8-Ball Pool junior singles champion after a dramatic finish to his final with Malta’s Scott Muscat.
Curwood, from the Victorian gold town of Ballarat, struck it rich as he came from 5-3 and 6-4 down to win 8-6.
And the 18-year-old Australian champion, was part of the Green and Gold squad to defeat England 13-11 in the junior team final.
His compatriots gave great vocal support in the Washington Suite as Curwood came through to succeed England’s Aaron Davies as champion
“I didn’t really practice too much before I came over but it’s the best thing I have ever won,” said happy Curwood. “It’s a great feeling to win two world titles.
“And I’m really happy to have won, especially as this is the last year as a junior,” added Curwood who whitewashed Ireland’s Adam Maher 7-0 in the semi-finals and England’s Murad Iqbal 7-4 in the quarters.
Curwood won three of his four frames in the team final as the Aussie youngsters retained their title. His only blemish was defeat to Keiron Phillips that allowed England to draw level at 10-all.
However, Stone Stenhouse, Hayden Gunn and Alex Kingsbury took three of the next four frames while Alex Pace was the remaining member of the Australian squad.
The England line-up was: Phillips, Iqbal, Ben Welfare, Kieron Lennon and Justin Field.
