Faraguna wins second straight, undefeated Predator stop

Last week (April 23-24), Dan Faraguna won two double hill matches out of the final three he played to complete an undefeated run on the Predator Tour. A week later (April 30-May 1), all three of his final matches went double hill, and for the second week in a row, he completed an undefeated run to claim the event title. The $1,000-added event, hosted by the Cue Bar in Bayside (Queens), NY, drew 55 entrants.
The first of Faraguna's three final double hill matches came in a winners' side semifinal victory over Erick Carrasco. Shawn Sookhai, in the meantime, won a double hill match in the other winners' side semifinal over Elvis Rodriguez. Faraguna and Sookhai battled to double hill in the hot seat match, before (for the second week in a row), Faraguna moved into the hot seat.
On the loss side, Carrasco drew 14-year-old Lucas Fracasso-Verner, who'd defeated Izzy Matos 8-4 and Pablo Sanz 7-5 to reach him. Rodriguez picked up Kapriel Delimelkonoglu, who'd eliminated Gene Hunt 7-4 and Del Sim 8-2. 
Fracasso-Verner defeated Carrasco 7-5 and advanced to the quarterfinals against Rodriguez, who'd eliminated Delimelkonoglu 7-4.  Fracasso-Verner took the quarterfinal match 7-3 over Rodriguez, but had his loss-side streak ended by Sookhai 7-4 in the semifinals.
The finals would prove to be the third double hill match for both Faraguna and Sookhai; the third straight for Faraguna. He won it to complete his run and claim his second straight, undefeated event title. The victory cemented Faraguna's place atop the Predator Tour's Amateur B Division rankings.
