YORKTON - Yorkton was host to a pool tournament for the first time in some time on the weekend. 

On Saturday the Yorkton Pool League hosted a single 8 ball tournament.  Games started before lunch after players registered and shot a few games to warm up. 

Eight players played in the double knockout event, with matches being a best-of-five, Most of the players were members of Yorkton Pool League Wednesday night league. 

All of the players involved were skilled pool players, and Scott Sharpe, one of organizers said he was not sure there was a clear favourite at the beginning of the event, but Dale Gelowitz and Perry Cote had played previously in a few tournaments around the province.   

Cote was eventually knocked down to the ‘B’ side in the second round but came back to play against Gelowitz, the A side winner. 

“There were a ton of great games to watch but the games between Dale and Perry were very exciting and it was great to watch two skilled pool players in the finale,” said Sharpe.  

In the end, Cote came out on top and took first place, with Gelowitz coming in second, and Bruce Nielsen completing the top-three.  

The Yorkton Pool League also wants to thank everyone that played or came out to watch, said Sharpe. A special thank you to Marty Derbowka and The CI for hosting and sponsoring a part of the prize pool. 

“We look forward to the next tournament,” said Sharpe.
