Securing back-to-back titles in any sport is an impressive achievement.
Eaglehawk's Tyson Howie has taken it to the next level by securing three-straight Bendigo snooker championships.
Howie had a tough task on his hands to secure another title as he was up against Sandhurst's Glenn Purdy.
In the high standard final all frames were contested with several black ball games and both players refused to buckle under the pressure, but it was Howie who would end up on top to secure a 4-2 victory.
Howie had breaks of 43, 36, 30, 22, 20 while Purdy made 33, 30, 28.
Despite the win, Howie acknowledged the high level of quality competition Purdy brought to the table in the championship battle.
In the B-grade championship decider it came down to the final shot, where Nigel Smith overcame the might of Paul Pipkorn to win 3-2.
In C-grade Aaron Petts outlasted Stan Cripps to win 3-1.
In the junior grade Jackson Dole secured a 2-0 win over Kurt McNamara.
The Women's final between Karen Engi and Helen McGeachin is planned to be contested during the weekend.
