Maguire ends teenager's World Championship hopes23/04/2012 - 12:27:38
Stephen Maguire put an emphatic end to Luca Brecel's first Betfred.com World Championship campaign this morning.
Brecel, who at 17 years and 45 days became the youngest player in the history of the tournament, left the arena smiling despite losing 10-5 to Scotland's world number seven, a former semi-finalist in Sheffield.
Brecel showed flashes of his quality during yesterday's opening session, in which he made his first century on snooker's most famous stage, but he was always behind and Maguire goes on to play either Graeme Dott or Joe Perry in the second round.
