Corr’s day began with a victory over Ivaylo Petrov, who she sent to the one-loss side 9-6. She then went on to deal Jonathan Demet his first loss of the event 9-5. Corr’s next opponent will be Johnny Archer, who survived a close match against fellow Mosconi Cup teammate Dennis Hatch to win it 9-7 and then defeated Ron Casanzio 9-5.

Shane Van Boening had a tough couple of matches Saturday. He started off facing Mosconi Cup teammate Mike Dechaine and ended up sending the defending champion to the west side 9-7. In the next round he was down 8-7 to England’s Jayson Shaw before he pulled off the double-hill win.

Warren Kiamco will be Van Boening’s first opponent Sunday. Kiamco eked out a hill-hill win over Hunter Lombardo and then went on to notch a 9-6 win over former world 9-ball champion Thorsten Hohmann.

After his 9-7 loss to Van Boening, Dechaine blazed a trail on the west side to return Sunday. He eliminated Los Angeles players Corey Harper 9-2 and Oscar Dominguez 9-5 before ousting Shaun Wilkie 9-4.

Dechaine’s next faces off against Dennis Hatch, who suffered a 9-7 loss to Archer the day prior but has been working his way through opponents left and right, including Adam Kielar 9-7, Matt Tetreault 9-7, Hunter Lombardo 9-5, and Demet 9-5.

Shaw is also still alive on the west side, having narrowly defeated former world champion Ronnie Alcano 9-8.
