Here's what happened in Week #15:
The Playa's were out at the Tackle Box last week, but they forgot a playa'. Actually they may have forgotten two, but they picked up Dave Kaplan - to most of you he is known more commonly as Wendy's bitch. Welcome to the league, Dave ;) The Playa's won the first 13 in a row and took the match in the first half. Leland, Charles, Dave K., and Kevin C. all got 3-0 wins. Leland got his second one via an 8-ball break-and-run. Larry and Charles beat Richie and Charlie in the beer frame 2-1. Final score: Playa's 15, T-Box 6.
The Down Lo Damned were home hosting the Oasis Bulldogs. It was close in the first half as the teams traded 2-1 matches, Bulldogs were up 7-5 at the break. Ty and Ed beat the Damned's Rob and Pat 2-1. It was all Bulldogs in the 2nd half as they got 7 of the final 9 points. Keith was the lone 3-0 shooter.
Over at the Oasis, the Outlaws were home hosting the Last Call. It was close in this first half, too, as the Outlaws were only up 7-5. Ricky got them into the lead with a 3-0 hat trick. Greg and Matt beat Mike D and Kevin of Last Call in the beer frame, 2-0. In the bottom frames it was all Outlaws. Thanks to Greg and Mike Karol's 3-0 wins, and Kenny's 2-1 win, the final score ended up a lopsided 15-6 Outlaws victory.
The Bankers were also at home at the Oasis as Duffy's made the trip west. Continuing the theme of the night, it was close in the front half as The Bankers were up 7-5 thanks to Jim W.'s lead-off 3-0 win. Bill and Jon got the beer frame for the Bankers, beating Kevin and Woot 2-1. But then Duffy's awoke and scored 8 of the final 9 points. Paul Lampright and Kevin Kinnell each got 3-0 wins back to back, and Woot scored the first 2 wins but as he went for the back-half sweep he lost the final match of the night. Either way, Duffy's come back was complete and they won 13-8.
At the Eagle's clubhouse, the Stickmen were buzzed in for a night of billiards and cans of MGD. The Stickmen started off strong getting to 9 points at the break, thanks to Cele and Cal's 3-0 victories. Brian Norman chipped in 2 to keep the run going. David Napier and Robin beat Sundy and Paul Wall in the beer frame, 2-1. In the bottom half the Stickmen kept it going as Wheez got all 3 of his matches and Keith wrapped it up with 2 more. Final score: Stickmen 15, Eagles 6.
In the final match of the week, the Oasis O-Team was 'home' taking on the Oasis Dragons. This match was tied at the break 6-6 thanks to Steve Hambek's 3-0 victory. Brian V. and Mike Clarke beat Steve and Krad in the beer frame. Kenny Smith started off the back half with a 3-0 win to help propel the Dragons to a 12-9 victory over their bar-mates.
Good luck this week, except for the Rack Pack - they are on their bye week.
We all have a bye week NEXT week (Feb. 27th) as some, hopefully most, of us are heading to Reno for the 2014 US Bar Table championships. See the flier in the previous post for more information. Hopefully we'll see you in Reno!
I'll try to get standings printed and emailed here shortly and send in a separate email. If not, I'll definitely have them up for next week.
