Finalists Dominic Barrett and Thomas Larsen

Youth versus experience in the final of the 2010 Catalonia Open, but both contestants for the laurels were spring chicken.

Dominic Barrett, 24, from Frinton-on-Sea, England advanced to the title match by defeating Bogota, Colombia’s Luz Adriana Leal, 287 – 201, including her eight pin bonus, starting with a spare, then stringing ten strikes and then leaving the 10-pin on the final ball.

Coming up against Thomas Larsen, 20, Barrett strung three strikes whilst Larsen had spare, double, spare, thereefore buiding a 22-pin lead by the fourth frame. all went swimmingly for the Englishman until faced with the 2-4-10 split in the eighth frame, taking just two pins.

That fired the lithe Dane and seizing his chance he struck out from the seventh frame to take the match, 235-229.

Larsen has just finished school and has yet to find gainful employment, so the €6,000 first prize will be very helpful over the next few months.
