Fisher wins Midwest Classic

Allison Fisher with Janet Shimel of Cuetec Cues

The WPBA website is reporting that Allison Fisher has defeated Karen Corr to defend her title at the Cuetec Cues Midwest Classic.

Fisher was undefeated in the event, including a 9-8 victory over Corr for the hot-seat. Corr went to the one-loss side and defeated a red-hot Kim Shaw who posted a career best third place finish.

This set up the rematch with Corr in the finals, under the ESPN TV lights. Corr took the early lead at 5-3, but Fisher fought back to tie the score at 5-5 and then go ahead at 6-5. Corr was not done though, as she won the next rack to tie the score at 6-6 with Corr breaking. The final game turned into a safety battle that Fisher would win, on her way to the 7-6 victory.

The win will allow Fisher to maintain her 185 point lead over Corr on the WPBA points list. Fisher collects $9,000 for the win, while Corr settles for $6,500 in second place money. Kim Shaw and Helena Thornfeldt filled out the top four spots.
