Lombardo and Bauries Win Pechauer Billiard Events

Lombardo and Bauries Bring Home Honors
J. Pechauer Southeast 9-Ball Tour / Vero Beach, FL

by Skip Maloney

Hunter Lombardo and Matt Bauries won the open and amateur events, respectively, of the J. Pechauer Southeast 9-Ball Tour stop the weekend of February 28-March 1. The $1,000-added open event attracted 27 entrants to Cunningham’s Pool & Darts in Vero Beach, FL, while the concurrent $500-added amateur event drew 31 entrants.

From among the winners’ side final four in the open event, Lombardo started the last leg of his undefeated weekend with a shut-out victory over Tony O’Donnell that put him into the hot seat match versus Rich Johnson. Johnson had just sent tour director Tommy Kennedy west with a 9-6 win and then followed him over when Lombardo gained the hot seat 9-1.

Adam Wheeler and Jim Sandaler were waiting on the one-loss side for O’Donnell and Kennedy. Kennedy survived a hill-hill battle against Wheeler, as Sandaler got by O’Donnell slightly easier at 9-7. Kennedy must have had enough of close calls because he proceeded to oust Sandaler 9-1 in the quarterfinals and shut out Johnson to meet Lombardo in the finals.

Kennedy ended up winning twice as many games as either of Lombardo’s previous two opponents, but Lombardo took an early 3-0 lead that he never relinquished. The two traded games through the middle of the match, but Lombardo reached the hill having widened his lead by a fourth game and then closed it out at 11-6.

In the amateur event, which finished late Sunday night, Matt Bauries defeated Jeff Mabry in the finals 7-4. Trevor Moore finished third and Prescott Buckwold ended up in fourth place.
