Thornfeldt wins at JOB

Helena Thornfeldt

JOB Billiards in Madison, TN was the scene of a $2500 added, open women's event this weekend.

Originally scheduled to take place over two days, the tournament was finished in one day to the very small turnout. A total of eleven ladies paid the $100 entry fee, but tournament promoter Tom Lynch went ahead and added the complete $2500 as promised.

Current #3 ranked WPBA player Helena Thornfeldt was the early favorite in this one, and she did not let any fans down. She cruised through the winner side untouched, including a win over #7 ranked Monica Webb and a 7-2 victory over Margo Yoder for the hot seat.

After the loss to Thornfeldt, Webb tore through the one loss side with a 7-5 win over Gail Lave, a 7-2 win over Linda Carter (sponsored on tour by Tom Lynch) and a 7-0 win over Margo Yoder to set up the finals between Webb and Thornfeldt.

Webb fought hard, but Thornfeldt proved why she is ranked so highly on tour with a 7-5 win in the finals.

Thornfeldt collected $1440 for first, while Webb settled for $1080 for second. Yoder and Linda Carter filled out the top four spots.

Complete Payouts:
1st Helena Thornfeldt $1440
2nd Monica Webb $1080
3rd Margo Yoder $720
4th Linda Carter $360
