Davis Takes Scenic Route to Win Dominiak Tour
Dominiak Cues Northeast Amateur 10-Ball Tour / Manchester, CT
The 70+ degrees with beautiful sunshine November 8 in New England kept a lot of players out of the poolroom. But the Dominiak Cues Northeast Amateur 10-Ball Tour headed to World Championship Billiards in Manchester, CT, with 19 players showing up to try and capture the title to the tour’s fourth stop. Phil Davis was the ultimate winner, defeating Steve Parise in the final match.
The top half of the winners’ side brackets saw tour regular Chuck Hill get a bye in the opening round and score wins over Ken DeBroske and Bart Rivezzi. But then he ran into a red hot Parise for a chance to make it to the hot seat match. In a close match Parise overcame Hill and sent him to the one-loss side. The bottom half of the winners’ side bracket saw regular Mike Wheeler make his way to the hot seat match to play Parise with wins over David Walsh, Glen Towle, and Brandon Charin. This match went to Parise after a few unforced errors by Wheeler opening the door.
On the one-loss side Davis was mowing them down one by one after a second-round loss to Parise. Davis scored wins over Gene Hunt, Towle, DeBroske, Hill, Charin, and finally Wheeler to make the finals and a rematch with Parise. Davis remained red hot and took an early lead, as Parise looked a bit cold from sitting. It wasn’t long before Davis notched up a 5-2 victory.Results:
