The double elimination tournament started Wednesday and the bracket was not set at press time, but Ace has the most wins with seven and three losses.

Rangely’s Prater’s Plumbing has six wins and has given up two forfeits. Ripped Shorts, PMC and the Enforcers also have at least six wins to make the tournament competitive, with Westlands Rancheros and Natural Soda also in the bracket.
