Carter Wins Again on BCW Tour
Billiard Congress of Wisconsin Tour / Sturtevant, WI
by Jonathan Demet
Nineteen players showed up for the Billiard Congress of Wisconsin Tour’s November 22 event, with Jeff Carter becoming a repeat champion on the tour. The event was hosted by Boomers Billiards in Sturtevant, WI, and boasted a $600-added prize purse.
In the top bracket Claudio “The Claw” Parrone of Kenosha made it to the hot seat match with wins over Jon Giles 8-2, Marlon Angeles 8-5, and Gil Hernandez 8-6. In the bottom half of the winners’ side Carter was playing well, and he also made it to the hot seat match with victories over Willie Munson 8-4, Jonathan Demet 8-5, and Tommy Pawloske 8-1. Carter was the winner in that match, going on to an 8-3 victory.
On the one-loss side Craig Powers steamrolled through the bottom bracket as Mark Berry was fighting all the way through the top half after a loss to Powers in the first round. Berry earned his revenge and took down Powers in a hill-hill victory. A nice crowd stuck around to watch the semifinals between Berry and Parrone, which made for great entertainment. Berry ended up in the finals with a victory over Parrone 6-3. Unfortunately for the crowd, Berry withdrew because of a time constraint for a third-shift job, and Carter took home another purse and another title.
