NC Men’s Open Playoffs Recap
The Men’s Open league officially went down to 4 courts this year and allowed for the unlimited use of 4.5 players on courts 2-4 of the Open. Midtown-Bannockburn and RC Lake Bluff both added teams to this league that had primarily consisted of teams from College Park, River Trails, Midtown-Chicago and North Shore. This year Midtown-Chicago, who we normally see in the Finals, did not make it to the playoffs but RC Lake Bluff did. RC Lake Bluff played against College Park. Even though RCLB won every match, every single match was close. Courts 1 and 2 were 2 set matches that ended in a tie-breaker. Courts 3 and 4 were both 3 set matches with an unfortunate injury on court 4. We hope Lawson has a quick recovery. North Shore and River Trails started the morning with their Open teams playing against each other and a few players knew they needed to have enough left over to play another match with their 4.5 teams. North Shore was able to win their Open matches 3-1. North Shore and RC Lake Bluff will meet each other in the finals on May 13th at College Park Athletic Club at 4pm.
