Viking Tour Creates New Champion

Adam Pendley and Randy Canipe

A field of 57 players made their way to Randolph's Billiards in Hickory, NC last weekend to compete in another stop on the Viking Cue 9-Ball Tour, but it was one of the youngest players in the field that made the most noise.

Fifteen year old Adam Pendley went undefeated through the field and scored his first Viking Tour win.

Pendley beat Matt Armstrong 9-6 for the hot-seat. On the one loss side, Armstrong then lost to Brian Capps and was forced to settle for third place.

Pendley closed out the night with a dominating 9-5 victory over Capps and a first place of $1210. Capps took home $800 for second. Armstrong and Tony Watson filled out the top four spots.

Viking Tour director Matt Janis complimented the staff at Randolph's and especially expressed his thanks for them keeping the doors open 24/7 all weekend to accomodate the tournament and action players that were in attendance.
