Davis Goes Undefeated on Lone Star Billiards Tour
Lone Star Tour / Temple, TX

by InsidePOOL Staff

The Green Room in Temple, TX, hosted its first $1,000-added Lone Star Tour event the weekend of March 27-28. The superstars came out, 47 in all, including Al Mason, T.J. Davis, Doug Young, and pro player Max Eberle to battle for over $5,500 in cash, with James Davis Jr. going home with the lion’s share after winning his second consecutive tour stop.

When the smoke cleared Sunday, it was Davis Jr. against Temple’s own Noel Torres for the hot seat. On the west side Mason bested T.J. Davis, while Robert Clark won six consecutive matches, including a 7-6 win over Eberle, to meet up with Mason. Clark made Mason his seventh consecutive match win on the one-loss side and sent Mason home with fourth place. After besting Torres as well in the semifinals, Clark moved on to the finals against Davis.

Both players burned up the felt, trading racks until the score was 8-7 Davis. Clark broke and left himself a shot at the 1 ball then a shot at a 2-9 flyer. Clark missed and gave up control of the table. A safety battle ensued in which Clark ultimately ran out to the 6 ball and hooked himself. Clark gave up ball in hand, and Davis put him away 9-7. This was Davis’ second consecutive win on the Lone Star Tour, undefeated in both.

Also, 25 women vied for over $1,500 in prize money. On the winners’ side, Heather Bryant bested Michelle Cortez 7-5, and Helen Hayes overcame Kim Pierce 7-5. On the west side, Austin’s own Kim Sanders was on a five-match winning streak. Cortez bested Melinda Bailey 5-1 then ended Sander’s winning streak. In the semifinals, Cortez squeaked by Bryant 5-4 then matched up with Hayes in the final. Cortez held Hayes at bay 6-2. After a few unforced errors, Hayes came back to make it 6-all. In the final game, Hayes broke and made the 9 ball.
