On Friday night Pillsbury-Winthrop defeated Thomas Transfer, 4-2 and Mathews-Carlson, 5-4 on Saturday, leaving both Pillsbury-Winthrop and Mathews-Carlson with identical 7-9 records with two to play. All of this action has set up key match up between Thomas Transfer and Corium International on Monday, 6/18 at 5 PM at Flood Park in Menlo Park. A win by Corium International would clinch the 4th and final slot for the League Tournament that starts Monday, June 25th at Baylands. Thomas Transfer, with a victory, can force a tie with one game remaining. Should be a great contest, come on out and watch the action!
