Hatch Wears the Horns In Viking National Championship
Nov 20, 2006, 9:00 AM

Dennis Hatch defeated the hot-streaking Steve Moore for the $5,000 top prize at the Viking Cue Tour National Championship, held Nov. 15-19 at The Pool Room in Duluth, Ga.

Hatch's undefeated run through the bracket ended in the hot-seat match, where he lost to Moore. A quick 11-6 win over Stoney Stone on the one-loss side final earned Hatch another shot at Moore in the finals.

In a true double-elimination final, Hatch won the first set, 11-8, and won the second set 11-9. Moore had multiple chances, especially due to miscues on Hatch's part, but Moore never seemed to be able to capitalize and gain control of the match.

Hatch earned $5,000 for first place, while Moore settled for $3,000 in second place prize money. Stoney Stone and Johnny Archer filled out the top four places.

1st Dennis Hatch $5,000
2nd Stevie Moore $3,500
3rd Stoney Stone $2,500
4th Johnny Archer $2,000
5th/6th Sparky Ferrell, Chris Bartram $1,500
