Well what a time and the upsets have started.
Congrats to Byron Cato and Jonesboro on winning State Championships and the Berth to Sectionals, now how are you going to fare once you lose your stud singles player within the next 48 hrs once the numbers are run.
Also great playing by Ft Smith as well did not expect them to finish 2nd, congrats guys was fun to play you guys, Jim Anderson was a good representative of your team
Jonesboro won the big match-up against Miller/Fairley winning 4-1 behind singles play and taking 2 MTB's in doubles.
Jonesboro then beat Ft Smith 3-2 on Sunday to clinch winning both doubles, although #2 Singles with Bolds was much much closer than expected. They then took #1 Doubles in MTB, while losing MTB at #2 and being blown out at #3.
Cato did a masterful job in the doubles mixing up team placement each match to keep teams guessing
Arkansas 4.5 Men's Results
Miller/Fairley 2-0 after Day 1 then the underdogs do it again with Ft Smith taking out Miller 3-2
Laster thrashed E. Bailey 2,1
Hickey lost to Hardee 1,4
Anderson/Eads lost to Matthews/Miller
Carson/Smith beat Heflin Brothers
McCain/Gilliam beat Clifford/Bourdo --- Wyatt should have protested but too bad
Saving players? No P Murphy, no Mattocks, Jones out of Town == disaster
Jonesboro sitting 2-0 behind singles domination of young guys, they will be needed at 5 PM against Miller Team for what should decided the title
Ft Smith and NWA both 1-1
Birch sitting at 0-2 after facing Jonesboro and Miller
Interesting match ups tonight should be fun.
Expecting several Dynamic DQ's of Self-rates after this tournament and numbers are run, I'll keep it to myself for now .....
I see the following gone once new numbers run:
Andrew Bolds -- sorry charlie your trying to keep it close against FT Smith won't help
Andrew Todd -- no losses and rolled at State
Grady McCain -- should have been protested as a signee with D2 UAFS UAFS Signs 4 then add in dominating doubles play at State
Matt Hardee -- was close but should be safe now
Jordan Custer -- close but losses at State keep safe
Justin Mattocks -- borderline and could go either way
