Rick Dunkin came in 2nd place last night, with John Moody coming all the way up from Terre Haute to finish in 3rd, and Ryan Garriot in his first tournament finishing with a strong 4th place finish. Everyone was pushed to the brink last night as it came down to Star Wars with Keith and Rick each having 3 strikes, and well…it’s Star Wars, sorry Rick.
