LAMBERT, METZGER FALL
Phil Dalhausser and Todd Rogers beat Punahou alums Mike Lambert and Stein Metzger, 21-12, 24-22, yesterday to win the AVP Cincinnati Open and capture the Crocs Cup with their 10th tournament title of the season.
Dalhausser had seven blocks and hit for an .818 average, helping his team pocket the $20,000 first-place check.
"Phil is just a scoring machine," Metzger said. "He blocked me a lot in the first game. I put myself in a different position in the second game, and he couldn't stop me until the very end he blocked me twice. He was the difference."
Metzger and Lambert changed their tactics in the second game and played more aggressively. They led by three early, but after Rogers hit a cut shot to pull within 10-9, it became a sideout game.
Rogers and Metzger were then served repeatedly as the match extended into overtime. Metzger forged two game points, but they couldn't convert as Dalhausser scored and Rogers followed with a shot off Lambert's block to set up Dalhausser's two blocks that ended the match.
