SAN IGNACIO/SANTA ELENA, Tues. Mar. 27, 2018– The single-player 8-Ball Tournament in Cayo, being sponsored by Mayor Earl Trapp, Jr., concluded on Sunday, March 25, at CK Sports Bar.
The first round of the tournament started with twenty-two players being placed in two groups of eleven playing a single round-robin format. At the second round, it was down to the top ten players, as five players from each group advanced; and then to the top four players.
The top four who clashed were Erwin Woodye (seeded #2) vs Luis Usher (seeded #3), and David Fernandez (seeded #1) vs Johnny Betancourt (seeded #4). In the first series, David Fernandez won over John Betancourt by default; and Luis Usher won Erwin Woodye, Jr. by a 4-1 score. So, it was David Fernandez vs Goliath, Luis Usher; but after David was up, 2-0, Luis made a huge comeback and dropped David, 4-2, leaving him with his slingshot with no stones to shoot. In the end, it was Luis emerging as champ.
The tournament ended with players in the following rank: Luis Usher (1st), David Fernandez (2nd), Erwin Woodye (3rd), Johnny Betancourt (4th), Mark Trujillo (5th), and Juan Villanueva (6th).
