Young Gun Morra Wins Again
Canadian 30K Tour / Scarborough, ONT
by Willy Hermoza and Tony Butera
A week after winning the big Stan James billiard event in Toronto, John Morra was triumphant once again, winning the May 5-6 stop of the Canadian 30K Tour. This stop was hosted by Shooters Billiards in Scarborough, ONT, once again featuring some of the finest players in the country.
Morra went undefeated through the winners’ side of the chart, sending Mike Patrowicz to grind it out on the one-loss side after besting him for the hot seat. Meanwhile, Jason Klatt recovered from a third-round loss to work his way to the finals to meet Morra there.
The finals were action-packed, with Morra taking an early 4-0 lead. But Klatt, unwilling to fold up, bore down and came back to tie the score. The match went game for game after that, until at hill-hill Klatt made good and won the first set. The second set was identical to the first, with one small adjustment: Morra came out the triumphant 9-8 winner.
