The Narrogin and District Eight Ball Association held its grand finals at the Cornwall Hotel last Saturday as Riff Raff emerged A-grade champions.

In front of a big and vocal crowd, Riff Raff prevailed in a tight contest over Duke 1 to claim the 2020-21 A-grade title and overturn last year’s result.

The two teams were locked together at 3-3 after the first round of singles and then Duke 1 hit the front after winning two frames of doubles.

Riff Raff hit back, winning the next two games of singles games to lead six frames to five before Duke 1 levelled things up at 6-6.

Duke 1 took the lead after winning the next single game but Riff Raff responded to make it 7-7 to take the match into a sudden-death winner-takes-all final frame.

In a very tight tussle, Riff Raff won the frame and won the day 8-7.
