Reyes and Lau met in the hot seat match after recording wins over Trevor Heal and Carl Yusaf Khan, respectively, both hill-hill. When they ran into each other in the following round, it was Lau who came away with the win 7-5.

Heal, once on the one-loss side, fell quickly to Dave Shlemperis, who whitewashed him 7-0. It was also the same for Khan, who put up more of a struggle but still succumbed to Christian Smith 7-5. In the quarterfinal match, Smith came out ahead of Shlemperis, winning by the lopsided score of 7-2.

Awaiting Smith in the semifinals was Reyes, and though it was a close match, Reyes pulled ahead to win it 7-5. In the final match, Lau and Reyes decided to split first place.
