As you remember from the past articles in the Splash, Tournament Director Ed Allen came up with an idea to have a “Scotch Doubles” 8-Ball Tournament. The Breakers Board and league members thought this was a good idea, so the tournament was scheduled.
“Scotch Doubles” is played as follows: Team partners alternate shots during the match. If one partner makes a “called” ball, their partner then shoots. If there is a miss, the opposing team begins to shoot. The Scotch Doubles 8-Ball Tournament is a race to five games – first team to five wins the match. Each doubles team will call opponents to schedule their match. Winners play off in the finals.
The Scotch Doubles finals were held June 15 at 9:00 a.m.
Bill Aune and Larry Stadler played Don Teusaw and Willie Foster in the Scotch Doubles finals at 9:00 a.m. After two and a half hours of a “cat and mouse” defensive match, Don and Willie were the winners of first place with a 5 to 3 score. Willie Foster made an excellent bank shot on the 8 Ball to seal the match! Don and Willie played great pool today. Aune and Stadler finished second.
After a tough day for Bill Lange and his partner Loren Hawkins, the team of David Mork and Arlin Wesner were victorious, winning a 5 to 1 match. Congratulations to Arlin and David for their third-place finish!
Cash prizes were awarded for first, second and third place.
A big thank you to all members who participated in the tournament and a special thanks to the spectators who came to watch the finals.
