Last Dutch hopes eliminated by local hero Tege and Kaplan in EPC 14.1 Division

Line Kjoersvik

Friday, March 25, 2011: Sascha Tege struck again. After eliminating van den Berg in the previous round, he now sent Niels Feijen form The Netherlands to his hotel room. He won the match with 125:95. In the same round, Polish Tomasz Kaplan clearly crushed Huidji See with 125:15.

In a very gritty encounter, Italy's Fabio Petroni outscored Serbia's Sandor Tot with a margin and won 125:122. In a tight match, it was Tot to reach 122 points first while Petroni was on 82. He then made a mistake on the feature match table #24 and Petroni showed no mercy, running out the match with a series of 43 balls.

In the women's division, Line Kjoersvik (NOR) managed to defeat Gerda Hofstaetter with 75:62. Kjoersvik will meet Silvia Lopez from Spain in the semi-final.

Due to many late matches today, the organizer decided to delay the final matches of the straight pool to Saturday, March 26 , at 21:15. Otherwise, the finals would have to be played tonight and that would definitely not be in the best interest of players and/or spectators.
