3:12 PM Nickens took a 0.08 CIC hit last round, so was at a disadvantage against Tanksley and tried to make it all up at the tree - he went deep red instead.

Tanksley's second-round opponent was incorrectly reported as Doug Stewart in the second-round report. His opponent was actually Larry Mayes in that round.
