The men's round robin concluded Monday morning with 3 teams tied for 1st with 8 win points.

By rule the team with the highest plus points has a bye and plays the winner of the 2 vs 3 match.

The team of Jack Behling and Bill Pearson beat Rodger Green and Don Wood in the 1st playoff game.

On Tuesday at 8:30 Len Hitchcock and Frank Souza will play Jack Behling and Bill Pearson to

determine the men's pairs team from the SCD to go to San Diego.

A nice crowd gathered on Tuesday to watch the men's pairs final playoff game. Len and Frank

jumped out to an early 9-3 lead after 6 ends. Then, with Jack looking at 3 down, he blew up the head and

 counted 2 . Inspired by the shot they proceeded to tie the game 9-9 after 9 ends. The next 4 ends

saw single points traded to get to 11-11 after 13. Then Bill and Jack scored a 1 and 2 to go up 3 with 3 to go.

Len and Frank were able to manage 1 on each of the final 3 ends to square the game and force an extra end.

Jack won the toss and gave Frank the mat. They played a long jack. Frank trailed the jack and stayed 6"

diagonally in front on his 2nd bowl 4 or 5 feet from the ditch. One of Bill's and 1 of Frank's bowls were

blocking the preferred hand and Jack had  several good tries but ultimately Len and Frank held on

to win the hard fought game.

1st-Len Hitchcock and Frank Souza

2nd- Jack Behling and Bill Pearson

3rd- Rodger Green and Don Wood

Below are the final results after round robin play.
