Road wins trending in Boston!

Celebrating a "Rhode" win in Boston

Here we are more than a quarter way through 2015 and there have been some changes in the cornhole landscape.  While home field advantage plays a significant role in most sports, it has been the road teams topping the podiums in 2015.  Forty Plus opened the year with a victory on the road in the Ocean State; however, in both Woburn tournaments, they have had to settle for being the best losers.  Rumor has it that Mayor Galvin has asked for the keys to the city back!

This trend is not unique to the top of the pecking order either.  Lance and Pigeon have exchanged wins with their South Shore counterparts on each other's turf and are sure to continue to battle as the year moves on.  The Rhody Brothers, Rhode Island's top team, secured their most notable win of the year...in Boston.

So what does this all mean??  It tells me I should probably stick to the secret tournaments with Keith Lessard if I wish to reach the winner's circle ever again!  Seriously, it shows how much the game has grown from novices to the competitive players.  While the cream of the crop is still just north of Boston, the walls are beginning to shrink with the momentum Litchfield Cornhole has built up in New Hampshire and the successful Monday night tournaments at the Boundary Brewhouse hosted by Ocean State Cornhole in Pawtucket, RI.  To be continued...
