Casanzio wins Clifton Park Joss Tour Stop

Greg Antonakos, Trick Shots Owner Tim Berlin and Ron Casanzio

Ron Casanzio notched his second Joss NE 9-Ball Tour stop win of the year at Trick Shots Billiards in Clifton Park, NY on the weekend of March 17th and 18th.

Casanzio made his way through the field of 35 players and took the hot-seat with a hill-hill win over Jeremy Sossei.

Sossei then dropped the semi-final match to Greg Antonakos 9-6. Antonakos had been undefeated all day Saturday, but lost to Casanzio midway through Sunday play.

The final match was true double elimination, and Casanzio would need both sets as he dropped the first set to Antonakos 9-6. Casanzio got things together in the second set of the finals and won 9-5 for first place in the event.

The second chance tournament on Sunday saw seventeen players battle it out. When the smoke cleared, it was Doug Wells holding off a late charge from Bruce Carroll to win the event.

The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour is at Salt City Billiards in Syracuse, NY next weekend (March 24th - 25th).
