The finals were a single race to 9. It started with Susan Mello wins the lag. Very quickly the match is even at 5-5. Mello wins the next two games making the score 7-5. Mello scratches on the break and Williams wins this one. Score is 7-6 Mello. Williams breaks and makes two balls and wins this one and the next. Score is now 8-7. Susan Williams gets to the hill first. Mello wins the next. We have a hill-hill match for the championship. Mello is breaking and makes a ball. She is hooked on the 1-ball and pushes out. Williams makes the 1-ball and then runs the rest of the balls and wins the match. Congratulations to Susan Williams for first place and Susan Mello for second place. Great match ladies!
