Rhodes rolls to SHC win

Carroll Rhodes took the weekly Shelbyville Horseshoe Club tournament a few weeks ago and he was back atop the Class A leader board last Thursday at SHC.

Rhodes finished at 6-1 and took the the title based on the strength of a head-to-head battle royale wins last week’s winner Rich Galvin, consistent SHC contender Llody Allen, and frequent SHC champ Lloyd Ruff.

Rhodes and Galvin dominated in rouned 1, winning 30-13, then came the first test in round 2. Rhodes and young gun Jon Galvin faced Rich Galvin and Dave Stone. Rhodes and Jon Galvin eked out a 30-28 victory.

There was no rest for the weary in the next round. Rhodes and Ruff went up against Allen and Stone. Double Rs tipped the scales in that round, winning 30-26.

The pressure on Rhodes continued in round 4, the hump round of the 7 round night. Rhodes and Allen stared down the barrel of Ruff and Stone. Once again, Rhodes prevailed by a slim margin, winning 30-26.

That gave Rhodes wins over Ruff, who took 2nd place, Rich Galvin, who placed 3rd, and Allen, who was in a shootout for 4th and finished 5th.

The pressure eased on Rhodes in round 5, except he pitched solo against Dorothy Hack and Stone. Rhodes was groovin’, winning going away, 30-8. But, “he who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.” Round 6 was the spoiler.

Rhodes and Stone faced Hack, who placed 5th at the Danville Open recently. Hack played the spoiler, single-handedly taking down the previously undefeated Rhodes and his partner, Stone, 30-17. Hack turned it up a notch in the match and the win helped push her past Allen for 4th place.

In the final round of the night, Rhodes was sitting at 5-1. Ruff was 4-2. Rich Galvin was 3-3. If Rhodes won round 7 he would clinch the title. Ruff and Galvin were partners and they could push Ruff past Rhodes for the title, if they won and Rhodes lost.
