Bonus Balls Event #4 Sept 2010

Winning First is WAY more fun than winning Second. Last weekend we played in the 4th event of the Bonus Balls Series - we had the #1 seed going into the playoffs - we were in the Finals - we won Game 1 - and then we let down. A stale in Game 2 and a loss in Game 3 took us to a 1 on 1 tiebreaker. We tied. Another 1 on 1 - we tied! Another 1 on 1 - we tied! Another 1 on 1 - we lost! Quadruple overtime. And we lost. Such a bummer. It's still great to win 2nd Place - but we feel we had this one and just lost it. It was no one persons fault. We should have finished it in Game 2 or 3 of the Finals. The guys who did the 1 on 1's put a lot of weight on their shoulders. I was really worried because it was my time to play if there were 2 more ties. So I think we learned a pretty valuable lesson this week - or two! First, finish strong and don't put yourself in that position. Second, we should practice 1 on 1's more.
