Roland Forthomme, as the best of four to the semi finals

BLANKENBERGE - He got no opposition in his match tonight and with the best average of the four semi-finalists, Roland Forthomme has qualified for the final rounds. The 'big four' of the Belgian three cushion meet tomorrow (Saturday) at 15.00.

Frédéric Caudron plays against Eddy Leppens. Eddy Merckx against Roland Forthomme.

The four together have gathered fourteen Belgian titles in three cushion:
Eddy Merckx 7
Frédéric Caudron 6
Roland Forthomme 1
Eddy Leppens 0

Roland Forthomme played a superior match against Steven van Acker, the conqueror of Davy van Havere yesterday. The young Eeklo player could not show that form at all in his duel with Forthomme: 40-13 in 21 innings.

Forthomme started off with an 9-run in the second inning. That margin he could increase in the second part of the match, when he built up a big lead in his usual, always something hurriedly looking playing style.

Patrick Niessen and Eddy Leppens both took the penultimate hurdle in the balk-line 47/2 on their way to the mutual confrontation, in which they battle for the title.

Leppens won in six innings against Devos. Niessen also defeated Devos, in three innings.
