MATTY Hill and Danny Macdonald will contest this year's Barrow Individual Snooker League final after coming through their respective last-four matches over the weekend.

The first of the semi-finals at the Soccer Bar on Saturday evening saw Hill overcome Dale McLean 6-2, having fought back from two frames down to seal the win.

McLean was playing with a plus-26 handicap, but Hill's strong matchplay got the match back level and from then on his two 50-plus breaks and steady potting and match play proved too much.

It ensured Hill's place in the final for the first time, although McLean can take positives from his impressive run in his debut Individual League season.

Macdonald beat county doubles partner Tony Mason in the other semi-final, triumphing 6-4 at the same venue the following night.

Macdonald led 2-0 after a cagey opening two frames and then pushed his lead out to 3-1 with a 30-plus break after Mason had got a frame on the board.

Mason won another to narrow the deficit to one, only for Macdonald to reel off two straight to go within a frame of victory.

Mason kept plugging away and got it back to 5-4, but Macdonald held his nerve and sealed the win on the brown.

The two finalists return to the Soccer Bar this Saturday for the final, which gets under way at 6pm. Spectators are welcome and there will be fund-raising for charity as well.
