Ray Caruana had to work hard to beat Manuel Mallia in the final of the Over 50’s Rank Tour 1. In a very balanced final the first 6 players were shared equally. Caruana won the next two consecutive frames while Mallia managed to recover next frame thralling 5-4. Caruana once again clinched the next two frames and needed only one frame to win the tournament. But Mallia’s time was not yet over winning the next two frames and with the score 6-7 was back into the game. In the fourteenth frame Caruana had a good break and did not led himself down and went on to win the frame that awarded him the title and a place in the Over 50’s Team A national team participating in the European Championships being held in Malta in February 2023.
