Pontefract pool star Darren ‘Dynamite’ Appleton helped Europe retain the Mosconi Cup in Las Vegas last night.

The 35-year-old, making his fifth consecutive Mosconi Cup appearance, was a member of Europe’s five-man team that thrashed USA 11-2 in the annual tournament.

Europe led 8-2 overnight and won the first three matches of the day to seal an emphatic victory with the second biggest winning margin in the event’s 20-year history.

It was the Europe’s fourth successive win and their sixth in seven years.
