Monday, Feb. 1, Silver Pines challenged La Casita. Oh my, what a match. They went head-to-head every game, only La Casita couldn’t seal the deal in the fifth match. Silver Pines took it by 3 points.
Tuesday, Feb. 2, Idyllwild Inn beat Soil Supply in a close, four-game match. Idyllwild Inn has played as a close team for a few years and it shows. Soil Supply has a great mix of players. Veterans like Jeanelle Meskimen-Bomis and Joleen Solorio keep this team competitive, while Josh Floquet and Ben Campbell can really put the ball away.
On Wednesday, Feb. 3, Idyllwild Garage beat Soil Supply Co. in a long, five-game match. Both teams were swinging hard and putting up blocks.
On Feb 4, Idyllwild Inn beat Idyllwild Vacation Rental in three games. IVR is a new team managed by TJ Titus. Making things happen with a new team takes alot of work. Hopefully, they continue to build for next year.
Two more weeks before championship on Saturday Feb. 27.
