Jeremy Sossei scored back to back wins over Mhet Vergara
to earn first place at the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour stop at Raxx
Pool Room in West Hempstead, NY on May 6th – 7th.
Sossei had Saturday wins over Jim McManus, Dan Shawlow,
Max Watanabe and Tom Zippler, while Vergara got past Ricky
Motilal, Mike Salerno and Pat Fleming on Saturday.
Sunday started for Sossei and Vergara with a matchup for
the hot-seat, which Sossei won 9-5.
On the one loss side, Sunday kicked off with Zippler defeating
Mike Yednak and Fleming beating Watanabe. Zippler then eliminated
Fleming in 4th place with a 7-5 scoreline. Zippler dropped
the semi-final match to Vergara 7-4, setting up the rematch
with Sossei in the finals.
Unfortunately for Vergara, he didn’t have any more
answers as to how to beat Sossei in the finals, as Sossei
took the first set 9-4 for first place.
In Sunday’s second chance event, Mike Salerno took
the hot-seat with a hill-hill win over Dan Sharlow and then
eliminated Sharlow in the first set of the finals, with
another hill-hill victory, for first place.
The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be back in action this weekend,
for another $1500/$500 added event at Amazin Billiards in
