Corr wins NY State 9-Ball Title

The J. Pechauer NorthEast Women's Tour held the 14th Annual NY State 9-Ball Championship at The Pocket Billiard Lounge in Binghamton, NY this weekend with a power packed field of 27 players.

Kim Shaw captured the hot-seat with a 7-5 win over Jennifer Barretta.

WPBA #2 ranked player Karen Corr dropped a match to Shaw early, but came back through the one-loss side scoring back-to-back 7-2 wins over Julie Kelly and then Jennifer Barretta.

The true double elimination finals saw Corr defeat Shaw 7-2 and then 7-5 to capture the title.
