Hatch Continues to Terrorize Joss Tour

Six in a Row for Hatch
Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour / Syracuse, NY

by Skip Maloney

Dennis “The Hatchetman” Hatch captured his sixth consecutive Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour victory the weekend of March 7-8. This $1,500-added event, with a total purse of $4,620, drew 39 entrants and was hosted by Cap’s Cue Club in Syracuse, NY.

From among the winners’ side final four, Hatch defeated Dan Heidrich 9-2. Jose Mendez, in the meantime, was busy sending Dave Grau west 9-4. Hatch gained the hot seat with a 9-4 win over Mendez and waited, as it turned out, for Grau.

On the one-loss side, Dennis Hatch’s uncle, Mark Hatch, after wins over Bucky Souvanthong and Andrew Attard, was waiting for Heidrich. Dan Doerner, after defeating John Morra and Jason Michas was there to meet Grau. Heidrich survived a hill-hill battle versus Mark Hatch, as Grau got past Doerner 9-7. Grau dropped Heidrich into fourth place with a 9-3 win and then defeated Mendez 9-2 in the semifinals.

In the true double-elimination finals that ensued, Grau handed Hatch the only set defeat he’d experienced since his five-match winning streak began in October of last year. Grau took the opening set of those finals 9-5. Hatch, however, returned the favor and bested Grau by the same score in the second set to complete his sixth straight tour win.
