Cruising through the winners’ side of the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour’s October 6-7 stop, Matt Tetreault didn’t hit a snag until he ran into Ron Casanzio in the finals, where he narrowly escaped Casanzio to take the title. The $1,500-added 9-ball tournament drew a 47-player field to participate at Sharp Shooters Billiards and Sports Pub in Amsterdam, NY.

Tetreault skated through his match against Joe Dupuis in the winners’ side final four 9-5, and in the other bracket, Chance Chin delivered a loss to Tom Acciavatti 9-5. In the hot seat match between the two, it was Tetreault who came out the decisive winner 9-4.

On the one-loss side, Casanzio was making a comeback, eliminating Dave Bounds in seventh place 9-5 and then Acciavatti in fifth 9-5. Nelson Oliveira was equally as strong, ousting Jason Michas 9-6 to go on to a hill-hill match against Dupuis, winning 9-8. Another double-hill thriller followed, but this time it was Casanzio who took the 9-8 win, sending Oliveira home in fourth place.

Clearly in dead punch, Casanzio advanced to meet Chin and defeated him 9-5 for the right to challenge Tetreault in the finals. In the double-elimination finals, Casanzio took the first match 9-6, but Tetreault managed to eke out the hill-hill victory for the title in the second set.

The $500-added second chance tournament drew 22 players. Bruce Carroll came through the west side of the chart to double-dip Brent Boemmels in the finals to win $340. Boemmels took $240 for second. Jordan Labbe earned $160 for third, while James Chemaly took home $100 for fourth.
