In the final match of the Men's Singles Play Downs, Richard Broad defeated Todd Wagers 21-10. Todd held his own in the beginning of the match, but then Richard pulled ahead and didn't look back (game recap). Anyone who has played in the Northwest Division has been Broad-sided. Many of us several times.

The final outcome of the Northwest Division Play Downs sees two veterans (Richard Broad and Nancy Nishikawa) bowling in the US Championships and four "first-timers" (Amy Alesio, Elizabeth Snyder, John Johnson, and Andy Klubberud).

We'll be rooting for them all.
