DJ Zuloaga and Lathan Dilger defeated Dennis and Chad Andersen for the second time to win Jefferson’s Halloween Haunt horseshoes tournament Friday, Oct. 30 in Pahrump.
Four doubles teams competed in the latest in a series of backyard tournaments, with the two playoff teams each winning two of three games during the round robin. Dilger and Zuloaga lost to George Mallory and Mike Dedeic in their second game, then defeated the Andersens to force the playoff game.
The winners took home $40, while the runners-up pocketed $20. Randy Salzwimmer and Jefferson Counts finished third because of a victory over Mallory and Dedeic in their final game.
At least one more backyard tournament will be played with the possibility of another, said Dilger, president of the Southern Nevada Horseshoe Pitchers Association.
