The Panda’s 9Ball pulled off an excellent team performance in the inaugural Rhino Cup held at Vadin Billiard Room in Cape Town on 23 – 24 January.
Panda’s started day 1 on a mission and led 8 – 2. They were looking to make it easier for themselves on day 2 but the Vadin team had another agenda. Like all Western Cape teams, they put on a good fight.
Post the 3 doubles matches and 6 singles matches on day 2, Vadin was up 7 – 2, making the overall score line 10 – 9 to the Pandas. This meant that the Pandas team had already secured a draw and needed to win the captain’s pick match.
In the final match, Aden Joseph (Pandas) came up against Jamiel Jacobs (Vadins) in a thrilling final match with one team playing for the win and the other for the draw.
Jamiel and Aden were both playing an amazing 9ball match and had everyone on the edge of their seats.
In a very tense, thrilling and action-packed match, Aden managed to get across the line for the Pandas with a 5 – 4 win to claim the first ever Rhino cup for the Pandas with an overall score of 11 – 9.
Congratulations to both teams for showcasing their amazing skills on the table. The next event will be hosted by Pandas in Secunda and promises to be a mega event with some amazing prize money on hand.
Pandas Rhino Cup Team would like to thank the following sponsors: KWV, Prima Skryfbehoeftes, Vadins Billiard Room and Pandas.
Players can qualify for each team by participating in the SA 9ball ranking events and Majors to earn their spot on the respective teams.
