Fox Takes BCA Qualifier at Prime Time Billiards

Dawn Fox

They came far and wide to compete at Prime Time Sports Bar and Billiard Café on April 14th and 15th – Dawn Fox from her new home in the South, and Meng-Meng Zhou from Mainland China. In the end, it was the two that did travel the furthest to play in the finals for one of the last BCA Vegas Qualifiers up for grabs.

Zhou cruised through the field undefeated with wins over Kathy Friend, Buffy Jolie and Naomi Fingerhut to match up against the two-tour POY, Morgan Steinman. Zhou dispatched Morgan to the left side of the chart with a 7-3 score.

Dawn Fox posted wins over Kiana Clark, but was sent to the left side of the chart by Naomi Fingerhut. Dawn then continued on her way with wins over Erica Testa, Palma Kogan, Pam Ogarek, Naomi Fingerhut, and Buffy Jolie to match up with Morgan Steinman. Dawn left Morgan in 3rd place with a 7-3 win to match up to Zhou in the finals.

In the modified race to 9, if Zhou reached 7 games first, the match is over and Zhou wins. If Dawn reached 7 games first, they would have to play out to 9. Dawn built up an 8-4 lead over Zhou, but Zhou dug in to come back hill-hill. In the final rack Zhou made a ball but had to push out. Dawn answered back with a safe. Zhou ran out to the 4, but missed and left Dawn a wide-open table to take the event and Qualifier.
