Richard came out on top with a 2/1 win, and Ryan with a 2/1 win. That left David v Graham for a single game to decide third and fourth place and David won to come third.
Richard and Ryan started the final and Ryan won the first game, and Richard won the second, for the deciding game, a tight match went to the thirteenth hoop and Richard eventually won, and well deserved too..
