BEAUCHAMP MOVES CLOSER TO REGAINING LADIES SINGLES TITLE

Amy Beauchamp is within two wins of regaining her WEPF World 8-Ball Pool ladies’ singles title.

But with the three other semi-finalists never having lifted the trophy, number one seed, Beauchamp, is sure to have her work cut out.

Opposing Beauchamp in Friday’s best of 13 frames semi-final is English rival, Katie Martyn.

Indeed, it’s an all English last four line-up after Australia’s hopes of producing their first ever individual ladies’ champion vanished in the quarter-finals.

Nottingham based Beauchamp, last year’s runner-up and champion in 2015, contributed to the Aussie fall-out with victory over Lyndall Morphett.

But it was touch and go before she completed a 7-6 win. Victory looked a formality when Beauchamp led 4-0 but Morphett, a member of Australia’s winning team 12 months ago, hit back to take six of the next seven frames.

However, Beauchamp showed her champion’s class to take the next two, including a 13th frame decider.

Martyn reached her first world individual semi-final with an equally tough 7-5 win against Morphett’s compatriot, Kolbe Poole, the fourth seed.

In the bottom half of the draw twice world runner-up, Barbara Taylor, defeated Yorkshire hope and international team mate, Kate Wringe 7-4 after trailing 4-1.

England skipper Taylor next faces another player making her world semi-final bow, Kerry Griffiths. The Nottingham cueist defeated Aussie Taylor Meyer, last 32 conqueror of three-time champion, Emma Cunningham, 7-3.
