The Toledo Guinness 9-Ball Tournament regular season came to the end over the weekend. Bejerano’s Challengers, claiming first spot with 54 points, was already in the playoff and was just waiting to see who their opponent would be. With this we had 3 teams fighting for the #2, #3 and #4 spot, namely Embassy Knights – 38 pts, Anaconda Celebrities – 30 pts, and Seaside Heights – 34 pts.
The weekend started with Anaconda Celebrities hosting Embassy Knights on Saturday night with attendance of 41 persons. At the end of the game, Anaconda Celebrities won, 3-2. Winners for Anaconda Celebrities were: Travis Jacobs over Davin Foreman, 5-3; Randolph Tulcey over Densford Mangar, 5-3, in a very unsportsmanlike game from Mr. Mangar; and Elias Coleman over Kenrick Galvez, 5-3. Winners for Embassy Knights were: Evans Mangar over Roland Tillett, 5-1; and Lyndon Parham over Eugene Jacobs, 5-3.
Then on Sunday, August 4, Seaside Heights hosted Anaconda Celebrities. Seaside Heights won, 5-Zip.
