Here's what happened last week-
The Oasis Dragons were hosting the Last Call Rack Pack. The Dragons shot out of the gate with 2 wins from Steve H., 2 wins from Micah, and a 3-winner from Aaron Smith. So it was 7-2 Dragons three matches in. Aaron and Micah even got the beer frame against Mike D. and Kevin L., 2-1. But as crazy as it sounds, those 7 point were all the Dragons ended up with. The 'Pack went on a 12-0 run and ended the night a winner 14-7, on the road at the Oasis! Matt, Mike, Gary, and Pat all got 3-0 wins in succession from the 4th-7th spots. Whoa!
The Down Lo Damned went on the road and beat the Eagles 12-9. All the matches were of the 2-1 variety, the damned just had a few more. Even the beer frame was 2-1: David Napier and James Skellenger beat Pat and Rob for the Eagles beer frame win (FTBFW).
The Bankers and the Bulldogs were both at home at the Oasis facing each other in an Oasis duel. I'll put it this way: Mark E. and Barney each got 1 point for their club. That was it. Keith, Brennon, Dennis, and Ed each had 3-0 wins (Chris and Ty 'only' got 2 wins). The Bankers didn't have a 7th shooter so the 'Dogs got 3 free ones. Final score: Bulldogs 19, Bankers 2. Rich and Barney did get the beer frame, though - beating Steve and Robbie 2-0.
The Duffy's crew were home welcoming in the short-handed Empire Club. A couple players for the Durham team were apparently left in Durham. They still played well with 5 players, getting 9 points to Duffy's 12. Curt got a 3-0 victory for his Durhamites. Baback didn't get all 3 of his games, but one of his wins was via an (according to some spectators) amazing 8-ball break and run. Ed and that Baback guy got the beer frame, too, beating Casey and Matt Vernoga 2-1.
The Down Lo Stickmen were taking on their bar mates, the Playa's, last week. It was a close match all the way through. The Stickmen were up 7-5 at the break thanks to Cal and Brian Norman's 3-0 wins. Rusty started the night out with three of his own for the Playa's. Tom Leclaire and Dave Kaplan beat Madsack and Wheez in the beer frame 2-1. It was back and forth in the bottom half and the Stickmen got to the proverbial hill, up 10-8. Tom Leclaire had to win all 3 for his team to claim victory, and he did. Sweeping the last match gave the Playa's a close 11-10 win.
Still no word on the Tackle Box scores as they played the Oasis O-Team at home. I still need more player's dues, bar sponsor fee, team roster, and last week's scoresheet from the Alligator Humpers. I've been under pressure from other captains and players to impose penalties, either point or monetary, since many other teams have paid themselves over a month ago. Most of those penalties are described clearly under our league rules. More information will be posted soon as it becomes available.
The Outlaws were on the bye week last week, the Stickmen have the week off this time. Wheez said he's ready to play for money - we'll be at the Down Lo tonight if you want to join us when you're done. Paul Wall's birthday is Friday I believe. Hard to believe he's 41. Good luck this week!
