Monday night division bracket pairings set; Tuesday up in the air
The St. Helens Men's Club Summer Golf League ended their regular season this week, but playoff pairings weren't established by press time.
The Monday division nearly ended in a three-way tie. Yarbor Racing and The Mower Shed both had finished with 55.5 points, while Paulson Printing was just a half-point back at 55. Yarbor Racing took the top seed, based on their first head-to-head meeting.
Scappoose Sand and and #8200;Gravel and Rofinot Heating were eliminated, leaving eight teams in the division.
A week ago, on Monday four teams were within 1.5 points of each other going into the regular season finale. The Mower Shed and Eaton's closed the gap by taking 7.0 and 6.0 points, respectively, from Kozy Korner and Paulson Printing. Yarbor Racing got 3.5 from Scappoose Sand and Gravel, enough to move them a point ahead of the tied Paulson and The Mower Shed. Eaton's was 1.5 out of first. Semling's Construction and Rofinot Heating were both on the bubble to be eliminated, but still within easy striking range of Sand and Gravel.
On Tuesday night, Captain Morgan on the Rocks all but clinched the division title by taking 7.0 points from Columbia River Fire and Rescue. Johnny's took 6.0 from the Pastime and is now tied with them in second. Kathy's Kreative Memories won six from Mt. View Electric and is just a point out of second place. St. Helens IGA Market took all eight from Columbia Rotary and is just two out of second.
The league will pare down to just eight teams in each division for next week's playoffs. The winners from each night of play will playoff for the championship on Aug. 29.
