Jul 22, 2005, 5:51 PM

Rodney Morris overcame an early 4-1 deficit against Germany's Thomas Engert Friday evening to win 11-8 and advance to the semifinals of the men's 9-ball division at the 2005 World Games in Duisburg, Germany. With the ousters Friday of Charlie Williams and Vivian Villarreal, Morris is the only U.S. contestant remaining in the four cue sport medal categories.
Morris will face former world 9-ball champion and reigning Billiard Congress of American Open 9-Ball Champion Thorsten Hohmann of Germany on Saturday for the right to play in the Gold Medal game. Hohmann squeaked past Sweden's Tom Storm, 11-10, to earn his semifinal spot. The other Saturday semi in the men's division will pit China's Pei-Wei Chang against surprising Vangelis Vettas of Greece. Vettas, who shocked Germany's Ralf Souquet in the opening round of the 16-player single-elimination field, dumped Williams, 11-7, on Friday. Chang, 2004 World Pool Championship runnerup, beat Holland's Niels Feijen, 11-7.
In Women's 9-Ball, Korea's Sung-Hyun Jung beat Villarreal, 11-8, to earn a spot in the semifinals. She'll be joined by Jennifer Chen, who upended Allison Fisher, Jasmin Oschan of Austria, and Norway's Line Kjorsvik.
Two Turks, Semih Sayginer and Murat Coklu, earned semifinal spots in the Men's Carom discipline, along with Dick Jaspers of Holland and defending champion Danny Sanchez of Spain.
Men's Snooker saw 18-year-old Jun-Hui Ding post a 138 clearance enroute to a 3-0 win over German'y's Lasse Munstermann. Ding reached the semis along with Amateur World Champion Mark Allen of England, countryman Gerard Greene and Belgium's Bjorn Haneveer, who overcame a 2-1 deficit to beat England's Gavin Pantall, 3 sets to 2.
