Eaton Earns Gulf Coast Crown

Gail Eaton and Natalie Mans
San Antonio’s Gail Eaton went undefeated at the Gulf Coast Women’s Regional Tour Championships held this past Saturday, November 16th, 2013 at Bogies Billiards and Sports Bar in Houston, Texas. Eaton blew threw a tough field of 16 competitors, including Natalie Mans in the final match, 7-2. Her trek to the winners’ circle included wins over Loretta Lindgren, 7-4, Cindy Cole, 7-3, and Kim Pierce, 7-3. Mans was determined to take home her first title but was cut short by Eaton who took home her second win this year on the Gulf Coast Tour.
Mans was in perfect form for her Gulf Coast Tour debut defeating newcomer Lorna McEwan, 7-3, Gail Roles, 7-3, and Mindy Williams, 7-4. She faced off with Eaton, a former WPBA professional player and game veteran, for the hot seat. The young, straight shooter exuded confidence and determination with each shot. At the table or in their chairs, both players were cool, calm, and collected, competing in true champion style. Eaton overpowered Mans and glided to a hot seat win, 7-2. On the one-loss side’s final four, McEwan was eliminated by Lindgren, 7-6, while Houston’s Belinda Lee, who suffered a second round loss at the hands of Pierce, 7-3, went on to eliminate Cole, 7-3, and Williams, 7-2. Mans made quick work of Lee, 7-3, earning herself a shot at redemption. It was a hard-fought final match, but unfortunately, Mans fell short by the same score, 7-2. Congratulations to Gail Eaton who captured her second 2013 Gulf Coast Tour victory as well as the title of 2013 Gulf Coast Women’s Regional Tour Champion.
