Seaver snaps Tiger Florida Tour at Brewlands

Thirty-one players came out to the beautiful new Brewlands Bar & Billiards in Lakeland, Florida to kick off the 2015 Tiger Florida Tour season and Tour Stop #1. Jeannie Seaver showed the players that she’s still the main force to be reckoned with, winning the first stop of the year.
The format is a one-day, modified double elimination, race to 7 on the winners and 5 on the one-loss side. Players play down to four on each side then redraw into a single elimination board. The first goal is to make it to the Final Board.
Jessica Barnes, Crystal McCormick, Nicolle Cuellar and Seaver went undefeated to the Final Board.  April Wallen, Courtney Bernard, Michell Monk and Kelly Coyle got there from the west. In the quarter-finals Wallen matched up against Barnes, who was playing lights out all day before losing to Wallen in a double-hill match. Cuellar, playing for the Qualifier spot advanced after sending Bernard home, 7-4.  McCormick lost to Monk 7-4, and Seaver shot past Coyle, 7-1. This left Wallen against Cuellar in the semi-finals, and Monk against Seaver, who earlier sent Monk to the one-loss side. Wallen quickly knocked Cuellar out; however, Cuellar, as the last player standing competing for the Qualifier spot, won the paid entry into the WPBA Masters event at Soaring Eagle. Seaver was left playing Monk in a tough double-hill revenge match that saw both players making 9-ball combos and runouts. But Seaver pulled out, making it to the final match. In the end, Seaver shot by Wallen 7-2 to win the first event of the year.
