Norm Pomainville earned first place at the March 16-17 installment of the Joss Northeast 9-Ball Tour, recovering from a late loss to Tom Acciavatti to wreak revenge in the finals. The $1,500-added main event drew a field of 41 to trick shot Billiards and Sports Pub in Clifton Park, NY.

Pomainville edged out Ron Casanzio in a tight 9-7 match in the winners’ side final four, as Acciavatti dealt Kevin Ketz his first loss, also 9-7. The hot seat match was an even closer contest, with Acciavatti eking out a hill-hill win to await a finals opponent.

Frequent Joss force Jeremy Sossei moved through the west side of the chart, eliminating first Bruce Carroll in seventh 9-2 and then Ketz in fifth place 9-3. Greg Antonakos sent Chance Chin home in seventh 9-6 only to be stopped in the next round by Casanzio, who won their match 9-5. Casanzio surged ahead in the quarterfinals against Sossei to claim a 9-7 victory.

But Pomainville was waiting for Casanzio in the semifinals and took that match 9-6 to earn another chance at Acciavatti. In the double-elimination finals, Pomainville squeaked by in the first set with a double-hill win. In the second, he won by the decisive score of 9-2.

A total of 16 players participated in the $500-added second chance event. Paul Rozonewski won first place over Jeff Smolen, taking home $320 for first place. Smolen earned $210 for second. Dan Menzies won $130 for third, and Ray Jewett claimed $80 for fourth. For their fifth-place tie, Paul Picard and Dave DiMeo each earned $40.
