The “Hot Seat” proved to be more like “The Chiller” as a cold, Sandra Stevens fell victim to a dead punch, Dawn Fox, 6 to 1. The second set in this true double-elimination format was a see-saw battle at first as Sandra was just starting to get back in stroke and exchanged racks with Dawn who was still on fire and reached the hill first. The inferno continued to burn in the final rack of this qualifier ending the set 5-3, Dawn Fox taking the scenic route and victorious over Sandra Stevens twice in the finals.
This qualifier wound up being the break of a new Dawn, granting her the opportunity of a lifetime to compete in one of the most prestigious and publicized women’s pool events in the world!
