The Next Chapter in the Best Rivalry of 2015

Grew and Prew avenge the Plymouth Implosion

For the third time this year, the final pairing of the day came down to Tim Grew and Charlie Prew against Larry Pigeon and Lance Madden.  The South Shore duo took the first meeting at the Baseball Tavern followed by a double-dip defeat at the hands of the Northerners at Plymouth Memorial Hall.  As the scene shifted to Woburn for the Bags for Breast Cancer Tournament, the story continued for these two evenly-matched teams.  Between group play and the knockout bracket, they split four games against each other; however, it was Grew and Prew who won the final, most important match of the day for the victory!  Pigeon and Lance took the opening match of the finals to force a decisive final game, but Grew immediately put up a big round in the opening stanza of the money match to change the momentum.  From that point forward, Grew was on fire as he outplayed Pigeon and guided his team to victory!  Congrats to Team Grew and Prew!  Fortunately, we don't have to wait long for the next installments of this rivalry.  The Northerners will be traveling to Pawtucket for the April ACO regional on Monday at the Boundary Brewhouse and then next Saturday, Sarge and Pigeon unite as the heavy favorites in the Burlington Cornhole Tournament.  Be there!

All in all, a great day of cornhole in Woburn for all 26 teams that participated!  We should also take a moment to laud a strong performance from the Worcester-based team that rounded out the podium in third place.  Honorable mention to Sarge and Lowry.  Victims of a stacked group, they cruised to the social tournament victory.  A special thanks to Mike Lounge, Joe Landry, Kevin Lowry, and Mike Doherty for assistance in running the event.

Finally, something new...GoPro videos of the final two matches.  It's a work in progress as the camera could have been closer.  Nonetheless, if you want to see what A-Level play in Boston is like, check it out!
