Hsin Huang repeats at Shoreline NWPA event

Hsin Huang

Taiwan's Hsin Huang won her second straight Northwest Womens Pool Association tournament this weekend.

Huang, who came from the one-loss side last month for her win at Dr. Cue Billiards in Shoreline WA, lost early to her travelling partner Kim Ga Young from Korea.

Huang showed that she can get it done on both sides of the board, as she defeated Tamre Greene Rodgers, Martha Hartsell and Mona Remedios to get to the finals and another shot at Young in the extended race to 9 finals.

The final match was a battle with both ladies alternating racks to the 6-6 point, before Huang turned it up a notch. Huang won rack 13 and did not allow Young back to the table as she broke and ran the last 2 racks for the 9-6 victory.

Huang collected $580 for the win, while Young settled for $360 for second. Remedios and Hartsell filled out the top four spots.

The NWPA tour will be at McQ's in Spokane, WA on June 21st - 22nd for their next event.
