THERE were a couple of bright moments for Keighley potters Arfan Dad and Chris Melling this week, but in the end they came up short in the Ultimate Pool Pro Cup.

Dad kicked off the action on day two of the tournament on Tuesday, as he took part in Group D.

He looked dead and buried in his opening game against Jake McCartney, but produced a finish out of nowhere with two minutes to go to knock his opponent out.

That left him facing Shaun Chipperfield, but his in-form opponent blew him away, like he had Brian Halcrow previously, to take the Group D crown over Dad.

With Dad out, it was left to Chris Melling to fly the flag for Keighley on Wednesday in a star-studded Group G.

Melling left it late to overcome David McNamara, putting him through to a clash with Jordan Shepherd, who had produced a sensational comeback from 5-1 down to beat all-time great Mick Hill.

And Shepherd took that momentum into his decisive clash with Melling, crushing the Keighley potter 7-1 in a 15-minute masterclass, achieving 100 per cent potting success in the astounding victory.

That sent Shepherd through from Group G instead of Melling, and he won his quarter-final against Liam White with ease.

He fended off the challenge of Jack Whelan in the semis too, setting up a final against Tom Cousins.

And Shepherd came out on top to take the crown, after a fantastic few days of pool.
