by InsidePOOL Staff
Scotty Townsend claimed the February 23-24 stop of the J. Pechauer Southeast Open 9-Ball Tour by coming through the one-loss side to topple tour director Tommy Kennedy in the finals. Hosted by Pocket Billiards in Dothan, AL, this stop boasted a $1,000-added prize purse.
Scrambling to recuperate from an early loss, Townsend made his way to the quarterfinals, where he met Mike Shimelman and sent him home with a 9-5 victory. In the hot seat match, Kennedy and Stoney Stone clashed, with Kennedy taking the win 9-6 to be sitting pretty in the king seat. Waiting for Stone in the semifinals was Townsend, who made short work of his opponent 9-6 to advance to the finals against Kennedy. There his experience and high gear pulled off his double-elimination victory, winning 9-5 in the first set and then 9-7 in the second.
