WRT 2014 Port City Shootout - Round of 16

Going by the seedings, six out of eight matches in the Round of 16 at the World Racquetball Tour (WRT) Port City Shootout in Stockton, California on Friday night, as only #1 seed David Horn and #2 seed Jake Bredenbeck won their matches. All the other higher seeds lost in the quarters.

But some of those lower seeded players are so simply because they have not played many WRT tournaments. Players such as 23rd seed Taylor Knoth who beat 7th seed Francisco Troncoso, 15-11, 15-4, and will play Bredenbeck in the quarters on Saturday.

Jose Diaz also won again, although he beat Coby Iwaasa by the smallest of margins, 14-15, 15-12, 11-10. Diaz will next play Danny Lavely, as Lavely beat 4th seed Gerardo Guevara, 15-2, 15-6.

Also winning Friday were Marco Rojas, seeded 22nd, who was a winner against 6th seed Alexi David Cocco Hayes, 15-5, 15-2, and Kadim Carrasco, who beat 3rd seed Jaime Martell, 15-7, 15-11. Rojas and Carrasco will play each other in the quarters.

The quarterfinals and semi-finals are on Saturday beginning at 10 AM and 5 PM respectively, and the final will be Sunday at noon PDT. Play can be viewed via the Gearbox website.
