With just three teams left in play as the tournament wound down, Team Mint Hill Wil took on Tactical Pest for a chance to advance to the finals.  “This was our only loss, so this is a rematch against our only loss of the day,” said Carly Lawson as they prepared to play.  “We go on and play the potential champions, and we’d have to beat them twice because they’re undefeated.  Both teams playing now have lost once, so the winner would have to play the other team and win twice.”



Team Mint Hill Wil defeated Tactical Pest in their rematch to advance to the finals but ultimately couldn’t take out the undefeated top-seated team.  Congratulations to Wayne Cahoon and Cody for their first place win in the tournament!  Wayne and Cody defeated second place winners Wil and Carly Lawson.
