East Anglian champion Catalano targets world title

MARIA Catalano believes “every snooker player’s dream is now a real possibility after the confidence boost of victory in the women’s East Anglian Championship.

A 3-0 win over Kent ’s Katie Henrick in the final at Pot Black Sports Bar, Bury St Edmunds, handed Catalano her second title this season.

And it took her to top spot in the World Ladies Billiards & Snooker Association (WLBSA) rankings at the expense of seven-time world champion Reanne Evans, who was preparing for the Players Tour Championship event in Sheffield .

Catalano said: “I managed to get another one under my belt.

“Katie didn’t really perform like she can. I didn’t play too bad and potted solidly. I’m just happy to win, really.”

The 29-year-old from Dudley, West Midlands , who also claimed the Northern Championship in September, insisted her priority is an elusive first world championship title.

“It’s every snooker player’s dream,” she said. “I feel more up for it now. One of the biggest things is confidence. Obviously, winning two tournaments has given me a big boost.

“I’m a little bit more consistent. My B game is stronger now than it used to be. And when I play well I can make the breaks as well. If it all comes together, yes, I fancy beating anyone, to be honest.”

Catalano was forced to battle for every point in her quarter-final match against Portsmouth ’s Emma Bonney. She fought back from 2-1 down to prevail 3-2.

“That was a good match,” she declared. “The decider was a tight one and I managed to nick it on the black. I was pleased with that one as well. It could’ve gone either way.”

While Catalano was accounting for Vicky Carter, from Stevenage , 3-0 in the semi-finals, former world champion Karen Corr’s bid for a first WLBSA final for 12 years ended in a 3-1 defeat by Henrick.

Catalano said it was a “nice surprise” to see Corr, who plays on the US pool circuit.

“It’s always great to see one of the old veterans come back,” she laughed. “She still knows how to play.”

Catalano, who said she’d “never say never” to following Corr across the Atlantic , dedicated her seventh WLBSA title to her poorly nan Gladys.

“This one’s for her,” she said. “And I hope she gets well soon.”

Corr constructed the day’s highest break of 78 in a 3-0 last-16 win over former England international Marianne Williams.

Hampshire’s Suzie Opacic beat two-time European pool champion Kim O’Brien 2-0 to clinch the Plate trophy. Eva Palmius accounted for Jan Hughes 2-0 to claim an all-Cambridgeshire Seniors’ title. And Derby schoolgirl Hannah Jones, 15, defeated Somerset ’s Tina Owen-Sevilton 2-1 in the Shield final.

The East Anglian Championship was the third of six WLBSA ranking events this season. The Pot Black Sports Bar will again host the World Championships in April.
