Delton Howard Wins Jacoby Stop at Fast Eddie’s

Playing host to the 10th stop on the Jacoby Custom Cues Carolina Tour on April 14th was Fast Eddie's in Goldsboro, NC. Home of the Carolina's Open, Fast Eddie's is a popular destination for pool players from around the world.

On this occasion, however, it was a regular from nearby Greenville that stole the show. Delton Howard, just back from a break from competitive play, survived several close matches before a lopsided final match against Greg Smith.

Howard began with a 7-3 win over Mike Frowein, then edged out Vernon Rogers and Mac Harrell in a couple of 7-6 hill-hill matches. Howard took the hotseat by defeating Smith 7-5.

Rogers and Harrell handed tour points leader B. J. Ussery two losses of 7-6 and 7-5, respectively.

Smith enjoyed wins over Sidney Champion (7-5) and John Haefka (7-3) before being sent to the one-loss side by Howard (7-5). He defeated Champion again (7-6), but in his rematch with Howard in the final match, Smith seemed to run out of gas. Howard was still in stroke, though, and took the win (9-1).

The next stop on the Jacoby Custom Cues Carolina Tour will be May 5th at Dot's Cue Club in Rocky Mount, NC.
