Sossei Wins Second Straight Joss Tour Stop

Bucky Souvanthong, Victor Conte and Jeremy Sossei

A week after Jeremy Sossei's undefeated run through the field at the Joss NE 9-Ball Tour stop at Salt City Billiards, he came out on top of the Al Conte Memorial at Hippo's House of Billiards in Utica, NY.


The closest anyone came to beating Sossei a week ago was Bucky Souvanthong's 9-5 loss. This time Souvanthong and Sossei faced off in the 4th round, with Sossei scoring a 9-6 win. No one would get any closer to Souvanthong on his way to the hot-seat, which he captured with a 9-5 win over last week's runner up Spencer Auigbelle


The tournament ended with more rematches from last week as Souvanthong and Auigbelle faced off in the semi-final match to see who would play Sossei in the finals. Auigbelle had won this matchup 9-8 last week, but this week it was Souvanthong scoring the 9-2 win. In the end though, it didn't matter who the opponent was for Sossei as he defeated Souvanthong 9-8 in the first set of the finals.


The second chance event on Sunday went to Willie Oney, who defeated Dwight Dixon 3-0 for the hot-seat, and then fought off Kevin Ketz in two sets in the finals.


The Joss NE 9-Ball Tour will be at Snookers in Providence, RI for their next stop - The 26th Ocean State 9-Ball Championship - on November 15th and 16th.
