Weekend Recap – A Spotlight for The Glove

By | ACO News (from the ACO) | No Comments

April 9th-April 11th

Spotlights, Spotlights everywhere! It was a weekend of fours, as the ACO had another action packed weekend with four Pro Spotlight tournaments, held in four different states, with four different winners.

Huntington, WV – Steve Vanderver came out of the consolation bracket last week to double-dip Matt Guy in the Finals and take the tournament. This weekend, the reigning King of Cornhole returned the favor. Vanderver sent Guy into the consolation bracket early. But Guy showed why he’s the reiging King, clawed back into the Finals and took down Vanderver for the tournament win. The craziness will continue in Milwaukee at the Brew City Bags Bash with the big money on the line. Place your bets and get to Milwaukee to see it for yourself!

Felicity, OH- Kevin “The Glove” Pinkerton showed why he is one of the top cornhole players in the World. He dominated a tough field and defeated Eric Hinerman in the finals. It was The Glove’s first Spotlight victory of the year. Keep an eye on The Glove. He has the shots and will pepper you with relentless sliders and airmails at will.

Virginia Beach, VA- “Journeyman” Steve Perry didn’t have to travel far to pick up his second Pro Spotlight victory of the year with a win over Roy Pulley in the finals. Will he defend his home turf when the Maize Kraze hits Virginia Beach in July? We shall see.

Greenville, SC- Shane Andrews clinched his second Spotlight victory of the year by beating Chris Hursey in the finals. Watch for the Carolina players to put on a solid show at Cornhole de Mayo in Spartanburg, SC in two weeks. Good win Shane!

Weekend Recap – Ironman defeats King

By | ACO News (from the ACO) | No Comments

Fans were treated to an early screening of Ironman 2 last weekend. We’re not talking about the Marvel comics flick. We’re talking about Steve Vanderver winning two Pro Spotlights.

It was another great weekend for the ACO as most of the country’s best players convened in Indianapolis, IN on Friday night and Columbus, OH on Saturday for Pro Spotlight events. The competition was extremely intense with many of the top CornyForty ranked players battling over the boards.

Vanderver is number two on the CornyForty Rankings.

Steve Vanderver took off some of the shine on Matt Guy’s crown in his victory over the reigning King of Cornhole in the Pro Spotlight finals in Columbus, Ohio. Vanderver then followed his sweet victory with another Pro Spotlight victory beating Dale Smth in the finals in Indianapolis, Indiana.
