Scott Muscat opened a 4-1 advantage over Wayne Pace who despite all this remained concentrated so that he not only equalized the score but even went 9-4 in front.

In the last moments, Muscat came back into the game and reduced the scoring margin although Pace won the last frame and eventually the final for a 10-6 scoreline.

In the under-18 final, Steven Muscat beat Chaylon Castaldi 9-6 while in the under-23 final, it was Matthias Debono who dominated over Casdy Vella winning 9-2.
