The field was decorated with experienced veterans, fastener rookies, and NCFA Hall of Famers competing for the coveted first place hardware. Multiple rounds of double elimination narrowed the brackets to three final teams. After playing three games straight, American Ring & Solution Industries faced off in a one loss bracket battle to earn a chance at playing undefeated Fastener Tool & Supply for the championship. The lead changed hands multiple times, and was forced to be decided in triple overtime. Down by two points, Solution Industries nailed a contested 30 ft. three point buzzer beater to advance to the finals. Solution faced a well-rested FTS team for the championship. Although the first meeting between the two teams in round two was close, the tired legs of Solution gave in and FTS won by double digits to take home back to back championships! In the end, a good time was had by all.
