Okay, that's a wrap for the playoffs!
Here's how everything ended:
For the A-Trophy:
3rd/4th Place Match:
The Oasis Ball Busters took on Stacy and his O-Team. The Ball Busters must have still been pretty sour about their loss the week prior and they took it out on the O-Team to the tune of 11-1. Walt, Kevin, and Eric each ran their games 3-0, but Chris Singleton got the lone win for the O-Team against Bil, who got 2 out of 3. So the Ball Busters are the 2015-2016 A-Trophy 3rd Place Team! Congrats!
In the Championship match, the Oasis Outlaws were taking on the Oasis Bulldogs for all the glory. It was essentially all Bulldogs as they went on to beat the Outlaws 11-3. Brenon got all 3 off of Kenny, Mike Karol got 2 out of 3 against Keith, Chris Urbach went 3-0 against Sean Bell. Robbie got 2 out of 3 against Izzy - one of the wins via an 8-Ball Break-and-run. Dennis finished the night with 2 wins against Gregg. Congratulations to the 2015-2016 A-Trophy Champions - the Oasis Bulldogs!
For the B-Trophy:
3rd/4th Place Match:
The Oasis Bankers were hosting the Shenanigan's Rack Pack. It was close all the way through. Mike Dowd started off with a 3-0 win for the 'Pack, but it went back and forth from their. It all came down to the final match: Shenanigans 10, Bankers 8 at this point. All the Rack Pack needed was one more win...and one more player. They only had 6 players so they had to forfeit the last match and give 3 points to the Bankers who used them to get to 11 points and the win. Congratulations to the Oasis Bankers - 2015-2016 B-Trophy 3rd place team!
It was another close one at Duffy's as they were taking on the Eagles. Ed Theis started the night with a 2-1 win against Robin, but then Bobbo got all 3 of his games against Ice Cream. Donny followed that up with 2 more against Prana, and Jon COX followed suit with 2 out of 3 against Kevin K. It was 8-4 Eagles at the break. In the second-half, Woot got 2 out of 3 against Mike Daniels, and Evan followed that with 2 against Dylan. That brought Duffy's back from the dead and into the rare playoff 7th frame with the Eagles up by just one, 10-9. Steve Swim got the first game to make it tied 10-10, but Terry Smith came back clutch and got the second game to get his Eagles to the required 11 points, and the B-Trophy Championship. Congrats!
