All the stats are now entered and the website is 100% up to date. Print outs have been emailed and posted at the Oasis. The Top Shooter list is current online as well. Sorry for the delay and any confusion. I'll stay more on top of it here on out.
January 8th Matches:
The Stickmen beat Last Call 16-5. Keith, Cele, and Brian Norman got all 3 of their matches. Last Call did salvage the beer frame, though.
The Oasis Bulldogs thumped the Alligator Humpers of Tackle Box 17-4. Mario, Ed, Dennis, Keith, and Chris all had 3-0 nights. The Bulldogs couldn't get the beer frame though.
In a close match in Durham, the Empire beat the Bankers 11-10. DJ, Matt, and Barney all had 3-0 victories. The Empire won the beer frame at home.
The Oasis Dragons won big over the Eagles, 17-4. Aaron, Walter, Micah, and Chaz each had successful nights winning all 3 of their matches. The Dragons also stole the beer frame from the Eagles for a road beer frame win.
The Down Lo Playa's got back on track beating the Duffy's crew 15-6. Kevin Cibart and Dave Kaplan had the only 3-0 wins, but Rusty (who got 2 out of 3) won one of his via an 8-ball break and run. The Playa's lost the beer frame to Ed and Kevin.
The Down Lo Damned lost to the Oasis Outlaws at home 13-8. Izzy and Mike Karol had the lone two 3-0 wins. The Outlaws won the beer frame.
The O-Team were on their bye week.
January 15th Matches:
The Stickmen were stopped cold by their Down Lo 'buddies', the Damned, 14-7. Super hot Dave Larabee (whoa, check that - Dave's good looking but I was referring to his pool playing skills of late) and just-as-hot (same reference) Steve McGrill, beat their opponents 3-0. The Damned also got the beer frame and all applicable bragging rights.
The Outlaws of Oasis also beat their opponents, Duffy's, 14-7. Kenny Duff, Ricky, and the Izzy got 3-0 wins. Izzy, also very hot of late (heterosexually speaking), has won 12 matches in a row. Oasis won the beer frame, too.
The Oasis O-Team were victorious against the Playa's of Down Lo, 11-10. Kevin and the recently un-retired Charles got 3-0 wins for their squad, as Russ, Mike Clarke, and James VoorHees got 3-0 wins for the visiting O-Team. The Playa's got the beer frame win.
The Bankers lost to the Eagles at Oasis 16-5. The Bankers only had 6 players which didn't help the cause. Mike Daniels, David Napier, and Robin each had 3-0 wins for their Eagles flock. Newly acquired Dylan and Jon (father-son I think?) won the beer frame for the visiting Eagles.
Out in Durham, the Bulldogs came out and beat the Empire Club 13-8. Keith Whitworth, who has been on a tear this season, was the lone 3-0 winner. That 3 pointer has helped Keith claim the top spot on the Top Shooter list. The Bulldogs also got the beer frame.
Over at the 'Box, the Last Call Rack pack were victorious over the Alligator Humpers 12-9. Pops got all 3 for his team, and Kevin L. got all 3 of his games for his squad. The Rack Pack were victorious in the beer frame.
...And last week, January 22nd Matches:
The Bankers were at home this week versus the Tackle Box. The Oasis players were up 8-4 at the break thanks to Richie and Mark E.'s back-to-back 3-0 wins, but Bob Cody's 3-0 win kept the 'Box in the match. I didn't have the Bob's last initials, so I'm going on memory from playing next to them who got what score. Correct me if I'm wrong. Bob and Bob teamed up against Mark E. and Barney and got the road beer frame win, 2-0. Teams traded 2-1 wins in the bottom frames and it panned out as a 12-9 Bankers victory.
The Rack Pack lost at home to the Oasis Bulldogs 12-9 last week. Rob and Mike had 3-0 wins for the home team, but it wasn't enough as Keith, Brenon, and Ty's 3-0 wins propelled them to victory. Dennis and Chris beat Last Call's Uncle Pat and Fish (sounds like children's book characters) 2-0 for the beer frame win. Keith’s newest 3-0 victory keeps him perched atop the Top Shooter elite.
The Oasis Dragons and the Empire Club competed in the closest contest of the week. The Dragons were narrowly up 7-5 at the break. Aaron and Micah started the night with back-to-back 3-0 wins, but then Curt came back with a 2-spot and Empire Ed got 3 of his own to keep it close. Aaron Smith and Micah beat Zach and Troy 2-0 in the beer frame. In the bottom-half Captain Casey gave his team the 8-7 lead after getting all 3 of his games. Empire Chris got 2 more to make it 10-8 Empire. But Chaz got 2 wins against Troy to tie it at 10-10. In the final inning, Troy got one of three to give the Empire an 11-10 road win. Just to note: you may see a lot of "Empire" last names on Casey's online roster - they all aren't related, I just have never received any last names. If those players want to contact me with their respective last names, I'll change it online.
The rarely occuring third match at the busy Oasis was between the Down Lo Stickmen and the Oasis Outlaws. It was all Oasis pretty much the whole way. It was 8-4 at the beer frame thanks to Greggy Bear's 3-0 win. Shawn, Kenny, Paul, and Bulldog each had 2 wins. On a side note, there was a great match between two Oroville BCA team members, Kenny and Cal. Both players shot incredibly well - it was worth an admission ticket just to watch! Scott got all 3 of his in the final match to get the Stickmen to a respectable 9 against the highly talented Outlaws, who ended up with a victorious 12 points. Izzy and Mike Karol beat Madsack and Paul Wall for the beer frame win.
The Damned and Playa's were slugging it out down at the Down Lo. No punches were thrown, but both combatants played well. The teams were tied at 6 half way through. Tony got 3 for the Damned, Kevin got 3 for his Playa's. Larry and Tom got the beer frame 2-0 against Pat and Philo. Those two played in the 5th and 6th spot - Philo got 2 wins, then Pat got 3 more to bring the score over the hill to 11 points. Steve McGrill tacked on one more to make the final score 12-9 Damned.
Over at the Eagle's house, the Oasis O-Team made the trip across town. The Eagles started with a very strong first half. David Napier started the night with three wins, Bobby V. and Donny backed him up with 2 each. It was 8-4 Eagles at the break. Mike Clarke and Derek beat Dylan and Craig E. for the road beer frame win, 2-1. In the bottom half, Robin got 2 in the fifth spot to get the Eagles to the top of the hill with 10 points, leading 10-5. But Joel Russo and Chuck stepped up big and each got 3-0 wins in the 6th and 7th spot to close out the night with a come-from-behind 11-10 Oasis victory.
Duffy's had the bye week for January 22nd.
January 29th is the last games of the first half (kind of). We still have that make up game on February 19th officially, but we're just about at "that" point. The point where you say okay, it's new half - let's do this thang and either turn that ship around or push even harder to stay where you're at.
Good luck! Playa's have the bye this week, which will pretty much straighten out the standings for a more accurate representation on Friday - just the Tackle Box's missed bye week on February 19th is remaining for the first half. If that makes sense.
