Corr goes undefeated on JPNEWT

Karen Corr
In the final four matches of the March 8-9 stop on the J. Pechauer Northeast Women's Tour (JPNEWT) - both winners' side semifinals, the winners' side final and the event final - the  winner gave up only a single rack. Karen Corr won three of those four matches to complete an undefeated run on the $1,000-added JPNEWT event ($500 added for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place by Coin of the Realm) that drew 33 entrants to Triple Nines Bar & Billiards in Elkridge, MD. 
Corr's victim in the winners' side semifinal was Linda Shea. Nicole Fleming, in the meantime, got into the hot seat battle after allowing Junko Tsuchiya the single rack. Corr then defeated Fleming 7-1 to sit in the hot seat, awaiting what turned out to be the return of Asia Cycak, who won five straight on the loss side to get to the finals.
Cycak, sent to the losers' bracket by Fleming, opened her loss-side streak with a double hill win over Dawn Fox, and followed that with a 7-4 win over Judie Wilson, which set Cycak up to meet Shea. Tsuchiya drew Sue Yen Rhee, who'd defeated Meredith Lambert 7-1 and Tina Hartman 7-3. Cycak and Rhee advanced to the quarterfinals, both 7-3, over Shea and Tsuchiya.
Cycak took the quarterfinal match against Rhee and the semifinal match against Fleming by the same 7-3 score. Corr, though, took command of the final match early and often, allowing Cycak only a single rack in completing her undefeated weekend to claim the event title.
