We had our best turnout of the year, so far, as thirty-two players on six teams were on hand for the game. At halftime, "Pray for Mojo," a squad of four this week, had the lead with 710 points. "Handful of Deeter," a team of six, and "Happy Birthday Haley," a team of fourteen, were tied for third place with 550 points each. Fifth place was shared by "Nameless on Main," just a dynamic duo this week, and "Hamma Thyme," another duo, with 350 points. The four man "Herding Cats" was in sixth place with 260.

A lot of points were score din the second half and the lead changed hands a couple of times, but when regulation play was over, "Pray for Mojo" was still atop the leader board with 1930 points. "Herding Cats" had made a huge move up the standings and ended up tied for third place with "Happy Birthday Haley" with 1630 points each. "Handful of Deeter" finished the round in fourth place with 1270, followed by "Nameless on Main" with 1250, and "Hamma Thyme" with 740.
