Comox Valley Pool League racks up the wins at provincial tournament

The Comox Valley Pool League (CVPL) sent a contingent to the B.C. Championships in Penticton, Feb. 25-March 1, and returned with a wall’s worth of plaques, and wallets full of cash.

The week began with a Scotch doubles tournament (mixed teams, alternate shots).

CVPL players made their presence known immediately, setting the tone for the rest of the week, with three of the top four finishes in the Scotch doubles event.

Deb Williams and Rob Wright placed second, earning $400.

The duo of Tracy Cross and Dave McKenzie placed third, winning $250.

Maryann McConnell and Marty Copeman pocketed $100 for their fourth-place finish.

All other matches began on Day 2, and the CVPL players continued their mastery.

Maryann McConnell went undefeated to win her 11th A Division Canadian Cue Sport (CCS) B.C. championship. She pocketed $600 for her efforts, and received automatic entry into the 2021 tournament.

Rose Kantor came up the back side and won her first match 4-0, then 4-1 to win her first championship. She also earned $600 and entry into the 2021 tournament.

Deb Williams also cashed in, winning $200 in qualifying bracket and moving up into the A division.

Kevin Ostashek finished fourth in the Men’s Seniors Division, winning $250.

In the 9-ball team tournament, Mary Copeman, Paul Marier and Lake Mackay teamed up to place second.

The Breaking Bad girls – Maryann McConnell, Deb Williams, Tracy Cross and Rose Kantor – went undefeated and won for the second year in a row, sharing $710 and gaining entry into the 2021 tournament.
