DKS Automotive win POM snooker title

DKS Automotive became the new Port Moresby Pacific MMI Corporate Snooker champions after beating PMMI Topshooters four frames to 2 in the best of four singles and two doubles final at the Lamana Q Club on Sunday.

PNG champion, Marcus Ng, beat Arana Taviri, current BSP PNG Minor Title holder, Marcus Rahman defeated Willie Vaieke and PNG women champion, Geua John, beat Vani Toka while Charlie Tom lost to Nathan Fong to take DKS to a 3 one lead after the four singles.
