If a solo match is set-up, only the player to the left of the match up "Ed Plank vs Abby Rose" will achieve a win/loss for his club.
Ed would being trying to win this game for his club.
Also, when we get near the end of the games to be played and some clubs have finished their 40 games, I have to use a solo match up sometimes to finish up the set of games for another club.
This week the solo match ups were added to try and get more games in for Burlington since they are way behind. (It doesn't look like they'll get to enough tournaments to complete the competition anyway though, but...I try.)
