Double-Bubble for Teams Germany

German Teams

The Gold Medals in the team competition of the Dynamic Billard European Championships Youth in Tirana, Albania, have been claimed. Team Germany have defended the desired titles on the final day of the Championships in both divisions.


The match in the Under 19’s was pretty much dominated by team Germany who also were the defending Champions and favorites in the clash with team The Netherlands. The first point was brought into the German account by multiple European Champion Patrick Hofmann. He conquered Cyriel Ledoux in  10-ball with 7:5. Later on today, Hofmann will also play in the semi-final of the 9-ball individuals and he will have a shot at his 4th Gold Medal during these Championships. An absolutely amazing performance by Hofmann. The necessary point for the German team victory was collected by Kevin Schiller who took down Jan van Lierop 8:4 in the 9-ball match. That brought the Gold Medal to team Germany.

The final match in the Under 17’s turned into a thriller. Fedor Gorst finished Leon Kohl quite quickly with 7:2 in 9-ball and opened the account for the Russians. At that time, the 10-ball match between Luca Menn and Ilia Nekleenov was hill-hill. Shooting at the 6-ball, Nekleenov made a huge mistake and missed an easy shot. Instead of sealing the deal for his team, he gave a chance to Menn to get back to the table. The German used the chance, won the 10-ball 6:5 and tied the score in the team match 1:1. The 8-ball match had to decide. Pete Herman was up 5:4 against Egor Trifonov. The Russian managed to level at 5:5. Then, Herman used his chance, broke the balls and cleared the table to win the match 6:5 and bring the Gold Medal to his team.
