IRT 23rd Turkey Shoot - Round of 16 Results

Jake Bredenbeck came within two points of defeating the #1 player on the International Racquetball Tour (IRT) as he and Rocky Carson were tied at 9-9 in game four of their Round of 16 match on Friday at the 23rd Annual Turkey Shoot in Garden City, Kansas, with the young USA Junior Team member up 2-1 in games on Carson. However, Carson was able to squeak out game four and then won the tie-breaker as he defeated Bredenbeck, 8-11, 11-5, 11-4, 11-9, 11-7.

Bredenbeck was putting away forehand pinches into the front right corner, and generally drive serving, although he did hit some lob serves to the right side - Carson's forehand.

The other Round of 16 matches were all won in three straight games, although Charlie Pratt did upset Chris Crowther, 11-8, 11-4, 11-1. Pratt served well, and hit good shots on just about every opportunity he had. Crowther didn't lose the match; Pratt won it.

Matches can be viewed over the web via the IRT Network.
