In round two, after a slow start in round one due to a mid-air, Brian Stas got past Chris Sarnowski with a one cut win emerging as a contender in the process. At the halfway point Neil had the clear lead followed by Matt and Brian. In round three Neil and Brian faced off in a match that ended in a one cut apiece draw. In the same round Chris fought his way into the mix with a two cuts to one win over Matt. In the final round, Matt and Brian flew to one cut apiece draw while Chris was turning in a one cut win over Paul Kubek. In the final match of the contest Neil got past Paul two cuts to one.
