Joss Northeast 9-Ball

Sossei wins nine straight for Joss Tour Win

After a first round loss to Matt Tetreault, Jeremy Sossei forged a two day come-back through the one loss side to win the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour’s tour stop at Sharpshooters billiards in Amsterdam, NY on February 23rd and 24th.
The story on the winner’s side of the bracket was the play of Ron Casanzio and Nelson Oliviera. They both made it through the forty nine player field undefeated and faced off for the hot-seat. The hot-seat would go to Casanzio by a 9-3 scoreline.
On the one loss side, Sossei was mowing down opponents. With the exception of Martin Daigle, not one opponent reached the hill against Sossei. Daigle will only be able to think about what should have been as he led Sossei 8-4, but was unable to win the final game before Sossei won the match 9-8.
After the loss to Casanzio for the hot-seat, Nelson Oliviera dropped a close 9-7 match to Sossei – and the finals between Sossei and Casanzio were underway. The first set of the finals went to Sossei 9-2, and the second set wasn’t much better for Casanzio as Sossei scored a 9-4 victory to complete his 9 match winning streak for first place.

The second chance event went to Brent Boemmels, who defeated Dan Menzies 3-0 for the hot-seat and again 3-0 in the first and only set of the finals. The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be at Snookers Billiards in Providence, RI this weekend for the 4th Annual N.E. Hall of Fame 9-Ball Open.
