Wilms Finds a Way
Billiard Congress of Wisconsin Amateur 9-Ball Tour / Sturtavent, WI

by Jonathan Demet

Twenty-seven amateur players made their way out for the $300-added Billiard Congress of Wisconsin Amateur 9-Ball Tour January 31. This handicapped event was hosted by Boomers Billiards in Sturtavent, WI, and was won by Josh Wilms.

Patrick McGuire, recently returned from his second 15-month Army term in Iraq, played very well to make it into a final four winners’ side match with Wilms that he won hill-hill. In the bottom bracket, junior player T.J. Brucker squared off with John Ehrhart, with Brucker taking the match 7-3. McGuire won the ensuing hot seat match 7-3.

In the final six of the one-loss side, 15-year-old Tyler Styer battled new tour member Troy Hansen, who won their double-hill match. In the bottom bracket Tony Loeper bested Tim Nickle 6-2. Loeper was then ousted by Wilms 7-2 and tied for fifth place with Ehrhart, who was eliminated by Hansen 5-3.

Wilms continued his winning streak by steamrolling Hansen 7-0 in the quarterfinals, leaving Hansen in fourth place, and then besting Brucker in the semifinals 7-5. But Wilms didn’t stop there—he went on to win his final two matches against Patrick McGuire 8-4 and 7-3, taking another BCW amateur title and earning a promotion to 9-ball open player status.

This handicapped event was hosted by Boomers Billiards in Sturtavent, WI, and was won by Josh Wilms.
