WCCC Wednesday Night at The Winner’s Circle, presented by Route 1 Vapors, presented our monthly Switcholio, and when the dancing was over and the dust settled, Brian Johnson claimed his 15th podium and 4th tournament win of the season, while partner Tyler Page scored his first ever in both categories.  Their undefeated playoff run culminated in a 2-0 finals sweep over John Mahoney & Eric Kenney by scores of 21-12 & 29-16.

The story of both finals games were Mahoney & Kenney taking a lead, having the game tighten up, and then Johnson throwing haymakers to knock out the opponents both times.  Game 1 saw Mahoney & Kenney take leads of 7-0, 11-6. and 12-11 after 14 rounds, before Johnson posted a 12-2 round on Mahoney to turn a 1 point mid-game deficit into a 21-12 win.  Game 2 saw Mahoney & Kenney survive an early barrage to take a 16-10 lead after 15 rounds, before Johnson & Page pulled to within 16-13.  Johnson took over from there, sinking his final 8 bags, sandwiched around a single point from Page’s round, and mirroring the end of Game 1 with another 12-2 round to cap a 19-0 run with a 29-16 victory to take top honors.

In the 3rd place game, Steve Singlar & Ryan McConville spotted Dominic Lander & Rob Carroll a 5-0 lead, then systematically picked apart their opponents over, scoring no more than 4 points in any one round but cruising to a 21-9 victory to claim the final podium spot.

Top PPR on the night went to Stephen Langlois, who posted a sterling 8.15.  Brian Johnson’s run to the title was aided by his 7.92, while his good friend Craig Anderson snagged the 3rd spot with his 7.8 PPR.  Johnson’s fourbagger barrage in the finals gave him top billing on that front, ending with 11 for the evening.

Sandy Peacock got her first stab at the airmail pipe, and she had one bag clip the rim and skitter off, and her final bag hung agonizingly on the rim for what seemed like an eternity before plopping to the ground.  The entire $1956 airmail pot rolls over to next week.

We would like to thank our sponsors that make it all happen!
