Team Hawkeye22 emerged out of the loser’s bracket and accomplished the unthinkable.  They defeated the winner’s bracket team, the RoadKings, in two straight matches (2-1 and 2-0) to claim the championship at the Bettendorf Kiwanis Fourth of July Bags Tournament.  Congratulations to these teams and thanks to Old Chicago for the team prizes.  Thanks for all of the teams for their participation and support of local Kiwanis!
