Corr wins her third victory, eighth over two seasons, on the JPNEWT

Karen Corr continues to dominate the proceedings on the J. Pechauer Northeast Women's Tour. On the weekend of May 30-31, she chalked up her third 2015 victory on the tour (adding to her five victories on the tour in 2014), going undefeated through a field of 28, on hand for the $1,0000-added ($500 by Coins of the Realm) event that was hosted by Triple Nines Bar and Billiards, in Elkridge, MD.
Corr was challenged by different opponents in the hot seat and finals. Following victories over Boye Lu, Kia Sidbury, and Joy McFeaters (by an average score of 7-2), Corr squared off in a winners' side semifinal against Nicole Fleming. Kim Whitman, in the meantime, who'd averaged 7-3 victories over Kassandra Bein, Tina Scott, and Kathy Friend, faced Briana Miller, who had defeated her three opponents (Connie Eddins, tour director Linda Shea, and Eugenia Gyftopoulos) by an average that was right between Corr's 7-2 and Whitman's 7-3.
Corr gave up only one rack to Fleming, and in the hot seat match, faced Whitman, who'd sent Miller to the loss side 7-2. Corr claimed the hot seat 7-4 over Whitman and waited for what turned out to be the return of Briana Miller.
On the loss side, Miller picked up Shea for a second time. Shea was on a four-match winning streak that had included victories over McFeaters 7- 3 and a shutout over Tina Scott. Fleming drew Kathy Friend, who'd gotten by Pauline Mattes 7-3 and Kia Sidbury 7-1. Miller downed Shea a second time 7-3, and in the quarterfinals, faced Friend, who'd eliminated Fleming 7-2.
Miller took the quarterfinal match 7-4 over Friend and then, gave up only a single rack to Whitman in the semifinals. Miller came within a game of forcing Corr into a double hill, deciding game, but Corr prevailed 7-5 to claim her third 2015 JPNEWT title.
