35 Women came out to play at Northern Lounge, AWBT’s 4th stop for an 8 ball tournament with $500 added and presented by J. Pechauer Custom Cues. This was a great chance for all the ladies to warm up for the BCA Nationals in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The weekend was a long scorcher with summer just around the corner. Along with the regular players we had 7 new comers and were happy to see everyone come out to play. Sunday started with Susan Williams vs. Cathy Kelly and Michelle Trevino vs. Susan Mello all on the A-side. The B-side pitted Mary Moench vs. Margie Stephanik and Amy Willkom vs. Holly Ryan.
Susan Williams and Susan Mello made it all the way through their brackets and met up for the hot seat match. Susan Mello came out victorious and waited patiently as Susan Williams went on to play Michelle Trevino.
After the match between Michelle Trevino and Susan Williams, Susan gained the win and went on to play the final match against Susan Mello once again. The lag was won by Susan. Since this is a true double elimination tournament Susan will have to beat Mello two sets of a race to 4.
With an outstanding run out of all stripes, the 1st game was won by Susan. By winning the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and having a spectacular run out, the 5th game, Mello won the match with an ending score of 4 - 1
Rounding out the top 8 were : Michelle Trevino - 3rd, Margie Stephanik - 4th, Holly Ryan & Cathy Kelly - 5/6th, Mary Moench & Amy Willkom - 7/8th. Congratulations to Susan Mello for placing 1st and taking home $290. Congratulations to Susan Williams for taking 2nd and pocketing $200. You both did a great job and we hope to see you two June 9th and 10th at On The Snap in Prescott.
