The luck of the draw also matched Erik Hjorleifson against ladies champion Naomi Williams. Erik continued his winning streak with a 11-1 win over Naomi.

Playing for the hot seat was Jeff Robson against Randy Fawcett. This was a great match going back and forth but when the smoke cleared it was Jeff Robson who came out on top with a 7-5 win, giving him the hot seat and sending Randy to the one loss side.
On the one loss side Justin Leyland was waiting for Randy. Randy had to settle for third place as Justin took control of the match winning the match with a 8-5 score sending him to the finals.
In the finals it was Justin Leyland vs Jeff Robson. The youth prevailed this time as Jeff took the title with a 7-6 score over Justin Leyland. Congratulations Jeff!
