Stephen Hanover won the 2017 Ken Hewison Winter Handicap tournament on Sunday 5 March beating Richard Patrick in a very closely contested final. Stephen and Richard are currently playing in leagues 2 and 3 respectively although neither player is a stranger to league 1. The final score here was 100 - 98 after starting from 65 - 75.
The game ebbed and flowed with both players enjoying periods of dominance and in the end it came down to who made the fewer mistakes resulting in Stephen taking the honours for the fourth time. Stephen was last year’s beaten finalist and has played in five of the last 10 finals. Richard has never graced the final before but has a couple of wins under his belt in the plate competition.
