Amanda Lampert Wins at Jamaica Joe’s OB Cues Ladies Tour Stop #2
OB Cues Ladies Tour Stop #2 was held at Jamaica Joeâ€™s, Midwest City, OK, March 9th/10th weekend.Â Jamaica Joeâ€™s, a regular host site for the OB Cues Ladies Tour hosted 29 ladies who ventured fromÂ Texas (Houston, DFW, Austin, and Sherman) and the local Oklahoma vicinity. Jess Massey and herÂ crew were fabulous as always and we do have to say that the renovations are truly magnificentÂ and top notch. We are so excited about always being at Jamaica Joeâ€™s that we will return forÂ another tour stop visit the weekend of September 21st/22nd, 2013 and hope to see more ladyÂ Oklahoma players step up to the challenge of taking on the Texas ladies.
There was some tough action all weekend long and many closely contested matches. With theÂ tournament being a 2-day event, the top 8 returned for battle on Sunday to see who would grabÂ the $550 1st place prize money. In the winners bracket was local Oklahoma player, Sherri Foley vs.Â Orietta Strickland and teammates Tracie Voelkering vs. Melinda Bailey. On the one-loss side itÂ was 2012 OBCLT Champion Kim Pierce vs. Amanda Lampert and Liz Mitchel vs. Angie Payne. TheÂ hot seat match was played by Sherri and Melinda with Melinda securing her spot in the finals.Â Finishing 7th/8th was Kim Pierce and Liz Mitchel; 5th/6th Tracie Voelkering and Orietta Strickland andÂ 4th place was Angie Payne, which is Angieâ€™s highest finish ever since playing on the tour.Â Congratulations to all the ladies for some awesome shooting.
Amanda, a true champion both on and off the pool table, brings excitement with her gameÂ wherever she goes. With her seemingly flawless pool shooting skills and a heart of gold toÂ match, you can never count her out. She lost her 2nd match of the tournament to Sherri Foley, butÂ was able to get her redemption by defeating Sherri 7-2. Sherri finished in 3rd place for a greatÂ event. Good job Sherri!
Amanda had won 5 previous matches to get to the finals and she would need to win the next twoÂ to get her 2nd back to back tour win. The matchup was a repeat of what happened at OB CuesÂ Ladies Tour Stop #1 wherein Amanda and Melinda were in the finals and Amanda double-dippedÂ Melinda for tour stop #1 win. This time Amanda, once again double-dipped Melinda 7-1, 7-5 forÂ her second and back-to-back tour stop win. Both ladies played superb. Congratulations for aÂ fantastic finish.
