Davis started out strong with victories over Davenport and Moore, while Wiseman followed up a 7-3 win over Bill Dunsmore with a hill-hill victory over Dave Grossman. After receiving a bye in the first round, Crosby sent James Roberts west with a score of 7-4, while Shuffett, who also received a bye, had a strong second-round 7-1 win over Bobby Livrago. Hall sent Jerry Calderon and Johnny Rocket to the left side of the bracket with scores of 7-3 and 7-5, respectively, before being sent west himself by Hunter Lombardo.

 

Over on the one-loss side, Raul Alverez, having jumped out to a strong 4-0 lead over Davenport, allowed the score to get even at 5 games apiece. He managed to close out the match, though, knocking Davenport out of the tournament with a score of 7-5.
