Unfortunately things don’t always work out as planned and Rob stole two. Doug was able to tie things up in the fourth when his team managed to get a couple of rocks in play for three points. Rob came back strong with a deuce in five to regain the lead. Doug was able to take the lead in the sixth with his second three-ender of the game.
