Leonard goes undefeated to chalk up win on Q City 9-Ball Tour

Zach Leonard got by Collin Hall twice to win the March 5-6 stop on the Q City 9-Ball Tour; once in a winners' side semifinal and again, in the finals. The event drew 58 entrants to Chandley's Chalk & Cue in Statesville, NC.
Their first of two, a 7-4 win for Leonard, put him into the hot seat match against Jonathan Ailstock, who'd defeated Jody Musselman 6-4. Leonard claimed the hot seat 7-2 over Ailstock and waited on Hall's return.
On the loss side, Hall began his trek back to the finals against Scott Lewis, who'd won two straight double hill matches, against Russell Bush and Josh Williams, to reach him. Musselman drew Chris Baker, who'd eliminated John Hoge 7-3 and Stevie McClinton 7-4.
Musselman and Hall advanced to the quarterfinals; Musselman 7-5 over Baker, and Hall 6-8 over Lewis (Lewis racing to 10). With Musselman racing to 7, Hall survived a double hill quarterfinal match that sent him up against Ailstock in the semifinals.
Hall completed his loss-side run with a 6-4 victory over Ailstock and earned himself a second shot against Leonard. They fought to double hill just before dawn on Sunday morning, before Leonard prevailed to chalk up the event title.
