In their semifinal, Wyatt defeated Eric Murphy of Papillion 2-and-1 and Sajevic beat Michael Peterson of Lincoln 5-and-3.

Other winners were John Fecht of Lincoln in the President’s Bracket, Hap Pocras of Omaha in the Bob Astleford Bracket and Steve Thomalla of North Platte in the Sam Reynolds Bracket (net scores).
