Waselenchuk and Carson in final of 2016 IRT Ghost of Georgetown tournament

It’s a case of the usual suspects in the final of the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) 17th Annual Ghost of Georgetown presented by Novasors in Overland Park, Kansas, as IRT #1 Kane Waselenchuk will play #2 Rocky Carson on Sunday.

They both won their respective semi-finals in three games. Waselenchuk defeated Alejandro Landa, 11-3, 11-4, 11-2, and Carson beat Jansen Allen, 11-9, 11-1, 11-7.

Waselenchuk and Carson met five times in finals last season, but not since January at the New York Pro-Am. Waselenchuk won all of those matches. Indeed, Waselenchuk is undefeated in completed matches against Carson since May 2003. Carson does have a pair of wins as a result of injury defaults, which were in 2012 and 2013.

Regardless, it’s been awhile since Carson has come out ahead in a match with Waselenchuk, and one would have to think that it’s unlikely to happen Sunday. But stranger things have happened, and that’s the reason why the play the games.

The final will be streamed live Sunday at noon Central via the IRT Network.
