Brothers Goes Undefeated at Mezz Billiards Tour
Mezz Pro-Am Tour / Drexel Hill, PA
by Jose Burgos
Josh Brothers easily cut through the field at the December 5 installment of the Mezz Pro-Am Tour, besting Eddie Abraham in the finals for the title. The $1,000-added event was hosted by Drexeline Billiards in Drexel Hill, PA.
Abraham led the top half of the bracket with wins over Dan McGinnis 7-3, Chris Riley 7-3, Tony Long 7-2, and Clint Clayton 7-3. Brothers mowed through the bottom half, notching wins over John Marabito 7-5, Lou Patrikios 7-2, John Greshock 7-3, and Danny Basavich 7-2.
Brothers and Abraham met up in the match for the hot seat, and Brothers took control with ease, taking an early lead and never relinquishing it to win 7-2. Waiting for Abraham on the one-loss side was Long, who he had sent west earlier. This grudge match went double-hill, but Abraham edged out Long 7-6 to earn his own revenge match against Brothers. But again, it was Brothers winning, this time by the score of 7-2 to take the title.
