By Morgan Wenger
Tournament Director

Perry and The Ringers seemed a step above the rest of the field in the Biddy Ball Division after two rounds of pool play. Both teams won their first two games convincingly, while every other team in the field had at least one loss. The two favorites played in a bracket challenge game to determine who got the top seed on the bracket.

From Home Page Perry took control of the game at the midway point and never looked back. XJ Wohlheter led the way for Perry with 11 points while Joey Luchitz added eight points. Luchitz had been on fire in the previous rounds, scoring in double digits in the other Perry wins. This included a 20-point outburst against WooWay. Adrian Jelks scored 17 points in defeat for The Ringers in their 28-22 loss.

After their heated battle in the bracket challenge game, most observers thought Perry and The Ringers were the odds-on favorites to have a second meeting in the division championship game. The Smithie Hoopsters had other ideas. The Smithie Hoopsters were a pedestrian 1-2 heading into bracket play and had even absorbed a 15 point shellacking against The Ringers. Undaunted, they started off bracket play by defeating Hoop Dreamz 30-21. Brady Sidle (14 points) and Grayson Wenger (11 points) led the way for the Smithie Hoopsters, while Kolbe Ramion pumped in 13 points in defeat for Hoop Dreamz.

Joey Luchitz and Alex Rohr went down swinging for Perry as they finished with 12 and 11 points, respectively. The Ringers, the second seed on the bracket, also found the sledding tough in the semifinal round. They were pushed to the limit by a game WooWay team.

Darrius Howard chipped in eight key points for The Ringers to contribute to their victory.
