IRON RIVER—One last time. The Iron County Men’s Pool League season will end April 9, no ifs, ands or buts.
With its 8-6 win over Snipe Lake II on April 2, Snipe Lake III forced the “if needed” game in the double elimination post-season tournament.
This week’s rematch will also decide the post-season series between the two teams. Back on March 5, Snipe Lake II defeated Snipe Lake III 8-3 in the tournament’s third round. That sent Snipe III into the losers bracket—but the team hasn’t lost a match since, defeating Village Inn I, Snipe Lake I and Knotheads before giving Snipe II its first post-season loss.
One thing Knotheads still wins is the league’s post-season banquet. It’s taking place Saturday, April 19, and there is still time to make reservations. Call Dave at 906-284-0067 or Mike at 906-367-2625.
All team members, substitutes and sponsors are invited. Cocktails are at 5 p.m., with the steak dinner at 7.
