Dechaine and LaFlamme score Joss Tour Wins

Steve Reynolds, Mike Dechaine and Mike Zuglan

Mike Dechaine completed an undefeated run through the field of thirty two players to win the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour's Maine Event VII at TJ's Classic Billiards in Waterville, Maine.


Dechaine was tested for the hot-seat, as he defeated Nelson Oliviera 9-7.


On the one loss side, Tom D'Alfonso had put together a wining streak of five matches after early Saturday loss to Dechaine. D'Alfonso made it six in a row with a 9-5 win over Oliviera, sending Oliviera to the seats in third place.


D'Alfonso was looking for revenge against Dechaine in the finals, but it wasn't meant to be on this day. Dechaine cruised to a 9-2 win in the first match of the finals.


In Sunday's second chance tournament, it was Jeff LaFlamme coming back from a hot-seat loss to Bob Dennis and defeating Dennis 3-0 and 3-2 in the finals for first place.


Sunday also saw the raffle drawing for the $1500 Joss Custom Cue, which was won by tour regular Bill Cote.


The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be at Sharpshooters Billiards in Amsterdam, NY next weekend for another $1500/$500 added event.
