Big Bottom Brewery/Evolve Salon won three straight elimination games en route to their runner-up finish. Globe Trailers 50’s (FL) finished in third place.

The Men’s 55 Major Division was determined via a best two-out-of-three game series, as Carolina A’s (NC) battled Woodlawn Funeral Home (VA) through all three games.
