In the ‘B’ Division, the Maulers finished first, with the Rangers in second, Outlaws in third and Honkey Donkeys in fourth.

The ‘C’ Division wrapped up with the A’s in first place, Bashers in second, Heads Up in third and Elkoholics in fourth.

The ‘D’ Division finals finished with the Misfits in first and the Brew Crew in second.

The annual tournament is a draw for many teams from around the region.
