Things weren't looking good early for Scott Frost, as he trailed Dennis Orcollo 5-0 early on day one of their $200,000 one pocket challenge match at The Carom Room in Beloit WI on March 2nd.
"Starting the day off right before the match, I felt real comfortable. Almost too comfortable for some reason. Dennis played flawlessly the first game and shot a couple shots I felt were wrong shots but he made them and like a switch I got really tense. Next thing I know I'm down 5-0 and my corner man says 'Scott, if they'd of asked for 5 on the wire, we'd of probably givin it to them, so stay strong'." Frost said after the day's play. "So I just kept fighting down 5/0 and the momentum started to carry me."
"Carry him" it did, as he turned that five rack deficit into a two rack 10-8 lead at the end of the night.
Both competitors will be back at it on Friday at 3:00pm CST, and the match will go until one player has won 40 racks on Sunday. The $200,000 at stake in this match is thought to be the largest challenge match in one pocket history.
