Rhodes rolls to SHC win


Rhodes didn’t lose. He and Hack teamed up against Stone and it was a cake walk, as they won, 30-9, clinching Rhodes second weekly win of the summer.

The chips didn’t fall Ruff’s way this week as he dropped two close matches, both 30-26. Lloyd Allen went solo against Ruff and Hack in the first round of the night and Allen threw a monkey wrench into Ruff and Hack’s night by the early defeat. Neverheless, Ruff claimed second at 5-2 with 52 points in those two losses.

Last week’s winner Rich Galvin settled for 3rd, despite going 4-3 and 66 points in losses. Hack nipped Allen for 4th by a point. Hack went 3-4, including the upset over Rhodes, with 62 points in losses. Allen was also 3-4, but had 61 points in loss. Hack and Allen both had losses of 30-26 and 30-21 and 30-7. In the other losses, Hack lost 30-8 and Allen 30-7, giving Hack the one point edge for 4th.

It was a busy night at SHC as their were two full classes. There were seven pitchers in Class A and another six in Class B.

Class B was won by Patty Doty, last week’s Class A 3rd place finisher. Doty scored a perfect 5-0 record. She won, 21-17 over Roy Franklin in a tough match out of the gate. Doty and Mike Stone beat Franklin and Debbie Spellman in round 2, 21-14. Doty and Shelly Weber were challenged in round 3 by Franklin and SHC charter member Pete Rankin, winning 21-17.

Doty was over the hump after round 3. She coasted to 21-10 and 21-8 wins to dominated the Class B field.

Newcomer Debbie Spellman finished the night with a 3-2 record to claim 2nd. Franklin and two other pitchers vied for 3rd at 2-3. Franklin’s two close matches against Doty pushed him over the top. Franklin had 48 points in his losses. Mike Stone was 4th with 43 points in loss and Rankin followed with 35 points in loss. Rankin started strong winning the first two matches of the night, but faded. Franklin started with three losses, but finished strong.
