But McCarthy was unable to overcome Plaut, who won their match 7-5 and sent McCarthy to try his luck on the one-loss side.
On the west side, Islam and Chan recovered well, winning their matches against Wilfredo Albay 7-4 and Peter Brennan 6-5, respectively. They squared off to face each other in the quarterfinal match, and it was Chan who came away with that 7-4 victory. McCarthy wanted revenge on Plaut and to get it he had to get through Chan first in the semifinals. After a 6-4 defeat of Chan, McCarthy advanced to the finals against Plaut. It was neck and neck all the way, but ultimately Plaut edged out McCarthy for a 6-5 victory.
