Tuesday, Jan. 26, Idyllwild Inn played well as a team to take Idyllwild Garage in four games to win the match.
Wednesday, Jan. 27, La Casita came out cold in the first two games against Soil Supply Co., then the tides turned to winning the next three games to take the match. Going to a fifth game is always fun.
Thursday, Jan. 28, Idyllwild Inn, a tough team to beat, played Idyllwild Vacation Rental point for point in their last game. Idyllwild Inn took it by just 2 points to win it in three.
Each team plays each other three times. There are six teams in this 2015-16 league. All teams make it to playoffs.
