Kjoersvik Wins at Hammerheads Billiards

Kjoersvik Wins at Hammerheads Billiards
Ladies Spirit Tour / Holiday, FL
by Skip Maloney
Line Kjoersvik returned to the winning ways she’d established at the Hunter Classic and Arizona Women’s tour stops earlier in the year, coming back from a defeat at the hands of Jasmin Ouschan to win the Ladies Spirit Tour the weekend of June 21-22. The $1000-added plus Carolina qualifying event drew 25 entrants to Hammerheads Billiards in Holiday, FL.
Kjoersvik opened her tournament bid with a narrow hill-hill victory over Jeannie Seaver. She then advanced past two more opponents to join Debbie Schjodt in the hot seat match. Schjodt advanced to the hot seat match-up through four opponents, including eventual finalist Ouschan, who had arrived without having given up a single game to an opponent since an opening 7-4 victory over Amy Poulter. Schjodt sent Ouschan west with a 7-5 victory and then followed her there when Kjoersvik defeated her by the same score.
Ouschan and Leslee Davis-Blakie, over from the winners’ side, dropped Yu Ram Cha and Ellen Van Buren into fifth place and then turned to face each other. Ouschan then proceeded to embark on a 25-4 run of games that propelled her past Davis-Blakie in the quarterfinals, a seminfinals rematch against Schjodt, and the first set of the true double-elimination final match against Kjoersvik. Kjoersvik ended that run by defeating Ouschan 7-2 in the second set and capturing the first-place prize.
