Capital snooker player Ross Vallance ended Robert Carlisle’s winning run to reach the final of Scottish Main Tour Event 4 and put a stop to Carlisle’s pursuit of three Scottish titles in succession.

Vallance opened up with a 3-2 victory over fellow Edinburgh potter Lee Mein, winning the final frame. He then clean-sweeped Cumbernauld’s Davie Hutchison to reach the quarter-finals.

He followed it up with a 3-1 victory over Falkirk’s Barry Wraith before overcoming Carlisle 3-2 to reach the final.

Vallance will meet Glasgow’s Scott MacFarlane in tonight’s final. MacFarlane, who will appear in his second final in a row after losing to Carlisle last time out, defeated Glasgow’s Dawud Quadir to reach the final which takes place tonight at the Johnny Baikie’s Snooker Club in Falkirk at 7pm
