What a great way to bring in the New Year!There was a very talented field for the Hammer Heads Classic 8&9 Ball Tournament this past Saturday. Included were great players such as Tony Crosby, Tommy Kennedy, Justin Hall, Tim Daniels, Adam Wheeler, Mike Davis and many more. With 21 of the best of the best the area has to offer it made for a great day of pool.
The final match pitted Tony Crosby coming through the loser’s bracket to meet up with Mike Davis.
The first match finished with Tony winning 7 games to Mike’s 6 games. The second match was a race to 5 and started with 8 ball. Tony breaks and runs all the high balls off the table and misses on the 8 where Mike came in and ran out. Mike then ran out the next rack. On the third rack Mike broke and runs down to the four ball missing a jump shot to hand the table back to tony who runs out to win the game. It was back in forth all the way through the match until the final game where Tony breaks and makes the 1 then tries a combo with the two to make the nine and misses but safes Mike. Mike hits the two but does not pocket the ball leaving Tony a run out for the win. The final score was 5 games to 4 games. It was great to watch both of these excellent players shoot. Now Tony Crosby is off to Spain for the Predator 10-Ball World Tour, good luck Tony!
