Fisher Wins KwikFire Stop
KwikFire Tour / Charlotte, NC
Recent Hall of Fame inductee Allison Fisher brought doom to her opponents at the December 5-6 stop of the KwikFire Tour, taking first place. The $2,500-added stop was hosted by The Smokin Cue in Charlotte, NC. Also at this event the KwikFire Tour was able to raise over $1,200 in donations for Michaela Pittman, a young girl who has recently been diagnosed with dermatomyositis.
Fisher went undefeated through the winners’ side, meeting up with Kelly Fisher in the hot seat match for the third time in a row on the tour. A. Fisher had just dominated Katie Cowan 9-1, while K. Fisher delivered Kim Shaw west 9-5. Their score seesawed to 7 apiece, at which point A. Fisher surged ahead to win the next two racks and the match 9-7.
The final four saw Gerda Hofstatter match up with Kim Shaw on the one-loss side. Though Hofstatter took an early 2-0 lead, Shaw’s consistent play ultimately saw her become the 9-5 victor. Now Shaw moved on to face K. Fisher, who was responsible for her earlier loss, in the semifinal match. Shaw earned her revenge 9-5 and went on to face A. Fisher in the finals. A. Fisher was her usual, steady self and won the match 9-5.
