Ruff, Doty back on top

Last week at Shelbyville Horseshoe Club, all pitchers were thrown in the same class and George Huntington dominated on his return from the World Tournament. This week they pitched in two classes and Lloyd Ruff in Class A and Patti Doty in Class B were back on top.

Ruff is the one to beat every week, if Huntington doesn’t show, in Class A. This week he did get beat, in two rounds, but still won the night at 5-2 with 35 points in two losses. Patty Doty has won Class B, 3 out of 4 weeks. She went 5-0 one week, 5-0 the next week, was 5-5 last week in one big class, then went 6-1 this week. Not counting last week, Doty has been 16-1, 3 out of 4 weeks.

Lloyd Allen was in first place in Class A after the first four rounds, going 4-0. Ruff was 3-1 and Dorothy Hack, back from injury, was 2-2. That was when the tide changed. Ruff and Hack each won 2 of the next 3 rounds and Hack almost went 3-for-3. Allen lost the next three rounds.

Dorothy Hack finished 4-3 with 54 points for 2nd place and Allen finished 4-3 with 46 points for 3rd place. Hack almost went 5-2, losing a match by one point, 25-24. She also had the most lopsided win of the night, beating two players by herself, 25-4.

Doty started the night in Class B with a loss, but then won the next six rounds to take 1st place at 6-1 with 17 points in her one loss. Brad Phegley was hot on her heels, also going 6-1, but scoring just 10 points in his one loss and taking 2nd. Phegley lost game 3, but won the next four rounds in a row.

Roy Franklin was close behind at 5-2. Franklin was flying, winning the first five games.

Then he ran into Doty, losing two doubles matches in a row.

The Shelbyville Horseshoe Club pitches weekly tournaments every Thursday night beginning about 7 p.m. at their courts across the railroad tracks from the corner of North 12th Street and North Morgan in Shelbyville. Local guests and visitors to Lake Shelbyville are welcome.
