SpAce Race 2013! Round 8 Recap
The SpAce Race 2013! season ended like it began, with a Matt Hylton victory in the round. In this final round, Matt bested his round one victory of 19 points with a series record 27 points. The bulk of the points came on an amazing three throw sequence where Matt aced his 2nd and 3rd shots on #11 to scoop the double ace pot, followed by a first throw ace on #12. Three consecutive aces! Epic.
That final round 27 points locked up 2nd place in the series standings for Matt. Brent Cameron was the runaway winner for the season (and he also finished 3rd in the final round with 18 points). Finishing in 2nd for the day (19 points) and 3rd for the season was Dallas Trower, who also won a 2014 season pass to Horning's Hideout in a post round raffle.
Kain Tormis posted an excellent 17 point round in just his 2nd SpAce Race of the season, including an ace on #4 that I caught on film (will need some days to edit final round footage). That was good for 4th place on the day. 5th place went to Derek Daniels and SpAce Race veteran Terry Kenney, with 15 points. Those points locked up a 4th place series finish for Terry. Also winning cash and scrip on the day were Kolte Breck and 8th place series finisher Brian Hausotter. Scrip winners on the day were Robert McClurg and his disc golf buddy Kenny, who was playing in just his first SpAce Race, 10th place series winner Strangebrew Kevin Rivera, 5th place series winner Tyler Olson, and 6th place series winner Waterloo Brandon.
A special shout out to Marc Paulson who banged 3 aces in his final 2 rounds and saved my butt with his giant canopy, as rain clouds have followed me to tournaments this entire fall season, lol.
