In another tie, this one at 10-6, Dana Misenheimer & Connor Pierce beat Alex Reinecke & Kyle Merrifield in head-to-head to take 6th place. There was also a three-way tie at 6-10, but the order in that group was also decided in head-to-head play, so no tiebreakers/shootouts were needed. In that group, Shaun Pierce & Kim Miller finished on top, taking 9th place overall, followed by Adam Williams & Evan Sardo (10th) and Chad Cowell & Scott Silverman (11th).
Only one Instant Win was thrown, and it was by Connor Pierce, his second on the season. His shot came in a win against Alex & Kyle, and was thrown through the slot.

With a bunch of perfect games thrown, it is interesting to note that a few teams had some bad luck along the way with perfect games thrown against them.
