West picks up second win on Stop # 6 of DelMarVa Bar Box Tour

Kevin West got by Wayne Hardee in two different ways to complete an undefeated run on the DelMarVa Bar Box Tour on Saturday, February 7. The event, the sixth on the tour, drew 29 entrants to Wyoming Tavern, in Wyoming, DE. 
West and Hardee met first in the hot seat match, after each had defeated an opponent 6-1 in a winners' side semifinal. West sent Josh Perry to the loss side, as Hardee was moving Rick Veller over. West took the opening match of the two versus Hardee in a shutout and waited on his return.
Perry and Veller moved to the first money round on the loss side. Perry drew Jeff Gibson, who'd given up only a single rack over his previous two matches, shutting out Rodney McLamb and giving up the one rack to Rocky Shiflett. Veller picked up Al Stambaugh, who'd given up only one rack to Zach Paitsel, and survived a double hill fight versus Scott Cannon.
It was Gibson and Stambaugh who advanced to the quarterfinals; Gibson in a double hill win over Perry and Stambaugh 4-1 against Veller. Gibson took the quarterfinal match 4-1, and had his loss-side streak ended 4-2 in the semifinals by Hardee. Hardee put up a fight in his second match against West, graduating from shutout to double hill, but West prevailed to claim the event title.
