Gerda and Line played it close, as Line finished strong winning 9-7.

Line continued playing well defeating Kim 9-4; however, she seemed to lose some momentum during her match with Kelly and lost 9-2.  With Allison and Kelly in the final it was a repeat of the 1st event final.

As always, both players produced the highest quality of play and at 6-7 there was nothing separating them – Allison made a 2-9 combo to make it 7-7.  Kelly broke and made an easy 3-9 combo to reach the hill first.  Allison played a solid rack to make it hill-hill, but Kelly broke the final rack, and after making the 7 ball on the break, cleared an open table to win the tournament.

Patty Sutherland from Wilmington, South Carolina won the “Highest APA Finisher” with an impressive 9th place.  Congratulations, Patty!
