2014 IRT Coast to Coast California Open - Semi-finals

It's #1 versus #2 in the final of the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) Coast to Coast California Open in Reseda, California, as Kane Waselenchuk, the #1 IRT player, will take on Rocky Carson, IRT #2. Both advanced to the final by winning their first three matches of the tournament in three straight games.

In the semi-finals, Waselenchuk only gave up seven points to Jose Rojas, winning 11-6, 11-0, 11-1, and Carson was only slightly more generous with Alvaro Beltran, who he defeated 11-4, 11-4, 11-8.

Waselenchuk and Carson have met regularly in IRT finals over the past few season, but this will be only their second meeting this season, and first since early October when they faced off in the US Open final, which Waselenchuk won

That victory was Waselenchuk's 71st on tour, setting the career tournament wins record. A win in Reseda will be his 73rd tour victory. In contrast, a victory for Carson would be his 19th IRT title.

The IRT Network will broadcast the final at noon PST Sunday.
