Oahu Invitational Bocci Tournament
all eyes were on the prize as the oahu bocci ball tournament kicked into full effect here on the island.
early rounds were held at the kailua beach park which featured short cropped greens that made for long, fast rolls and undulating grassy knolls that set up wicked breaks and prime-time gallery seating.
the tourney brackets held true to form as the top four seeds advanced to the semifinals which were held on the hallowed grounds of the lanikai bocci compound.
in the first semi, the team of brown & white edged TA & JD in a hotly contested affair. and then, in the second semi, the upstart team of speich and hendrix came from 13-11 down to upend the #1 seeded team of cox & thaan, 15-13.
the finals appeared to be a blowout as the team of brown & white took a commanding 11-6 lead over the cinderalla team of speich & hendrix.
however, just as their fairytale run seemed about to come to an end, speich & hendrix miraculously turned the contest around and doggedly pulled out a stunning 15-12 victory. to the victors came the spoils, and the freshly crowned champions reveled in their new found glory.
