HAZEL Owen picked up her fourth Nelson and Colne Ladies’ Pool League singles title at the Shooters.

The Alexandra ace took on Karen Monk of the Crown, both players having previously won the title.

It was a well-fought battle with each player having opportunities in each frame to clear up, with two of the frames going to the black, but Hazel emerged a 3-0 winner. The pair are pictured, with referee Sam Hamer.

Having missed out on the singles title, Karen made up for that disappointment by winning the doubles title with team-mate Ellen Burke, beating Helen Kay and Sara Green of the Alex at their home club.

After two long tactical frames the score was 1-1, and the third saw both sides miss chances to finish it off early before the Crown pair eventually took the frame.

Another tactical frame followed which was also taken by the Crown side to see them win 3-1.
