Sorry, I've been busy with a thing called 'work' in my life. I know it sounds crazy, but I've had to prioritize it ahead of pool league for a little bit. But now with the Thanksgiving break, I've had time to catch up. Plus I've got all the score sheets, most of the rosters, almost all of the player payments, and most of the player's last names - at least enough to move on. Still, pretty bad for 2 months into the season, but it's all I can do. This HAS to change the start of next season - it's the first item on the 2015-2016 Captain's meeting agenda. Next year - "your team can not play a match until dues are in and a complete roster (first and last names) is submitted" will be up for a vote, and I'm assuming it or something similar will pass.
Stats are now up and current! See the 'President's Corner' in the top right hand column of the home page for notes on a work-around for viewing the entire list on one page, not just the first 100 and a second page for 101+, or to see and filter just your own team. Please check for accuracy and let me know of any errors. I have all the scoresheets now and can verify if something seems off. The Top Shooter list has been started for this year as well. It's early, and those standings can change dramatically this time of year, but it's up none the less. Again, you need to have competed in 75% of the total games possible (12 or more out of 18, currently - it's actually 67% but close enough this early) to be on the list. The beer frame tracker still needs to be updated, but coming soon.
Here's what happened in week #6 (sorry, I've had to skip week #5's recap):
The Eagles Club was hosting the 1st place Bulldogs at their joint on November 20th. The home bar was up 7-5 at the break thanks to Terry's 3-0 showing. Bobbo and James Skellenger beat Ty and Robbie in the beer frame 2-1. In the bottom half the 'Dogs came back strong and got 7 of the final 9 points to win in the end, 12-9. Ty got a 3-spotter to help his team get back on track in the bottom half.
The Stickmen ventured out to the Tackle Box last week. The Down Lo squad won 12-9 thanks to Cele and current top shooter Brian Norman's 3-0 wins. Jonny kept it close with a 3-0 win of his own in the final match. The 'Box also got the beer frame - Bob Cody and Garrick beat Brandon and Sundy 2-0.
The Last Call Rack Pack made the furthest possible bar-to-bar trip as they headed south to Durham to face the Empire Club. Both teams were locked in a tie going into the beer frame, 6-6. Matt and Mike of the Last Call beat Zach and DJ in the beer frame 2-0. The Empire scored big in the bottom half getting 7 of the final 9 points. Troy got all 3 in the final match to give the Empire a 13-8 win.
The Down Lo Damned were at home facing their upstairs neighbors, Duffy's. The Damned won big, 14-7. David Larabee and Cowboy Rob each had 3-0 wins to help the cause. Ed and Ice Cream did win the beer frame though as they beat Rob and Philo 2-1.
The Dragons were at home facing the Down Lo Playa's for week 6. The Playa's were up big early, 10-2, thanks to 3-0 wins from Leland and red-hot Tom Leclaire. Sid and Walt of the Dragons beat Kyle and Dave in the beer frame, 2-1. In the bottom half, Kevin and Dave kept it going with 3-0 wins of their own. Final score, Playa's 17, Dragons 4.
The Outlaws and the O-Team were locked up in an inter-bar matchup at the Oasis. Teams traded 2-1 wins in the top half for a 6-6 tie. Mike and Aaron Rooney of the O-Team beat the Outlaw's Matt Fields and Izzy for the beer frame, 2-0. Each team traded another pair of 2-1 games to make the match tied at 9, but the O-Team didn't have a 7th player so they gave the final winning 3 points to the Outlaws. Final score 12-9, Outlaws.
The Bankers had their bye week last week, the Bulldogs have the bye for December 4th.
Good luck to everyone else!
