Tetreault Undefeated for Joss Tour Win

Rocco Spinelli, Matt Tetreault, Jeremy Sossei and Mike Zuglan


Although Tetreault was undefeated, he dodged his fair share of bullets in this event. His first match of the tournament found him trailing Tom Acciavati 7-2 before Tetreault righted his ship and won the match 9-8. 

Tetreault dodged another bullet in his final match of the day on Saturday when he saw his 8-4 lead over Dave Bounds get cut to a 8-8 scoreline. Again, Tetreault took control of the match and won the final game to stay undefeated on Saturday.

Sunday play saw Tetreault score a 9-6 win over Jeremy Sossei and then a 9-7 win over Nelson Oliviera for the hot-seat.

Oliviera would fall to Sossei 9-3 on the left side of the board and Sossei would face Tetreault in the finals.

The final match would be another close one with the score tied at 8-8 in the first set of the finals. Tetreault missed a tough 7-ball in the case game, but left Sossei hooked and would get another trip to the table, where he ran the final three balls for the 9-8 win.

Tetreault earned $1200 for first place, with Sossei taking home $900 for second.

The second chance event on Sunday saw 30 players who failed to make it to day two competed for $1100 in prize money.

This event would be won by Redgie Cutler, who defeated Aaron Greenwood 3-0 for the hot-seat and then defeated Tim Parisian 3-2 in the first and only set of the finals.
