Happy Friday to all!
The Supper League playoffs continued this week at the Carroll Country Club. The premier match up was Your Mid Iowa Team vs. Your Bud Light Team. Long time subscriber, top local amateur, highly successful and more veteran golfer Craig Mertz beat Papa Joe Pick on the last hole and Mike Franey made quick work of the Junkyard Dog Cuda Quandt. It was a bad week for golf's most famous couple as they lost to Duff and Lehrkamp on Wednesday at the Muni for the Senior City Tourney. Bud Two Troy Auen lost to the playing pride of Willey Iowa Paul Tigges and Mike Schulz lost to Produce Tom Duff. In the end it went to the low net score and Mid Iowa prevailed by three strokes.
Next up for your Mid Iowa Team will be the defending league champions Volquartsen Custom. The gun shop beat a hot Carpet One team 6 to 4. Chad Kanne and Casket Kyle Atkinson beat Easy Ed Vanderheiden and Brad Hempstead. Colin Bierl and Jon Sturm beat Boomer Lechtenberg and Kevin Forke.
|Welcome to Jace and Jemma Volquartsen|
The other matches in the championship match saw the Carroll Cycle Center shut off the water to the Highway 30 Car Wash 8 to 2. The current Carroll City Champion was the only loser for the cycles falling to Car Wash Todd Pettitt. The champ was carried by Captain Terry Ruchti, Jamming Joe Hinners and Jay Dress who beat Curtis Stork, Randall Road Bierl, and Jeff Minnich.
Next week the cycles will face Supper league's most mature team Stiff Sticks. The sticks took care of Ag Venture. Bud One Jim Auen carried the team with his hot sticks shooting a 31 and blanking Brady Evans 9 to 0. Templeton's Doc Sporrer was a winner over Clint Cummings. Denny Kasperbauer was the only winner for the team beating Magic Mike Nelson. Fairway Frank Comito and Neal Cross tied their match.
So next week will set the championship match.
Mid Iowa vs. Volquartsen Custom
Carroll Cycle Center vs. Stiff Sticks
Supper League experts at the round table give the early edge to a Mid Iowa victory over Volquartsen and a Cycle Center upset of Stick Sticks.
As a graduate of the Uncle Bruce school of handicapping this publisher also sees a Mid Iowa win over Volquartsen. The farmer will get control of his dog and that will prove to be the difference in this one.
The cycles and the stiffs match is a toss up to me. How will the champ react after the Rivalry Cup? Will a red hot Bud One show up again? This one will be a battle!
The Uncle Bruce player of the week is Bud One Jim Auen!
