NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. – China’s Xiaoting Pan drew first blood in the second ESPN televised race to 7 semi-finals today, winning the first two games to lead 2-0. But Korea’s Ga Young Kim fought back, and to the delight of the sold-out crowd at the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel events center, the match soon stood knotted at six games apiece! Pan missed a one-nine combination; Ga Young Kim followed that up with a miss of her own. Then Pan fired in a 2-9 billiard to pocket the nine and win game and match!
