IRT - MonaVie Salt Lake City Pro-Am Round of 16

Tony Carson has reached the quarter finals of an International Racquetball Tour (IRT) Tier 1 event for the first time ever, as he defeated Shane Vanderson, 3-11, 7-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-2 at the MonaVie Salt Lake City Pro-Am in Salt Lake City, Utah. He'll face the winner of Jack Huczek and Felipe Camacho in the quarters later on Friday.

After dropping the first two games, Carson came back helped by big leads to begin both game three (6-0) and game four (7-0). After that big lead in game four, Vanderson seemed disinterested, and perhaps was waiting for the tie-breaker to end the match.

In the tie-breaker, Vanderson did score the first two points, but Carson replied with 11 unanswered for his biggest IRT victory ever.

The IRT Network will soon be web-casting the MonaVie Salt Lake City Pro-Am quarter final matches. Remember there will be two rounds of play Saturday, as the final will be Saturday night rather than Sunday as per usual.

The semis are set to go at 11 AM and noon on Saturday with the final at 7 PM. All times are MDT.
