Week #2 Results
Nov 6, 2012, 11:58 pm

It's official! Individual stat percentages are now part of the stat section on this website - no need for an outside spreadsheet! Once you click on the 'Statistics' tab in the left-hand column, two important things to know for right now:

1). You can sort the stats list by percentages by clicking on the heading 'WP' (win percentage) - click once for high to low, again for low to high. Note that the list only shows the first 100 players of the league on page 1, then the other 20 or 30 players on page 2. So if you sort the page it only does the current page, it won't include the 2nd page players. Until it is changed (hopefully), there is a work-around: Click on any team in the team filter drop-down box. Once it loads that team, go back and select 'all teams' in that same drop-down menu and it will show ALL players on one page. Then sort by percentages to get an accurate leaderboard of ALL players in the league. Sorry for the annoyance - I'm working on it.

2). For some reason it doesn't consider 100% as the top percentage, it puts it down at the bottom of the list, just above 0%. I'm working on that too, but as good as those guys are I don't think they'll stay at 100% and when they drop to 95% or whatever they will show up at the top of the list again. For those players that are 3 for 3 all year, it would be good to have them down on the bottom anyways.

So that's the news on that, here's what happened last week:

The Dragons were in another close one this week. They were 'home' versus the Oasis O-Team. The O-Team was up 7-5 at the break as teams traded 2-1 games. Steve and Krad beat Jimmy Nguyen and Mike Clarke giving the Dragons the beer frame 2-0. Dragon Steve got 3 wins in the 5th match, and Krad got 2 more, putting the Dragons on the hill 10-8. But O-Team Aaron came up big in the final match and got all 3 games to give his O's a come-from-behind 11-10 win.

At the Down Lo, the Stickmen were home hosting the Eagles. The Stickmen jumped out to a 7-5 lead thanks to Cele's 3-0 victory. Keith and Sundy kept the momentum flowing into the beer frame as they beat David Napier and Jon Cox 2-0 for the honors. David got 2 in the 5th match for the Eagles, but Keith Abarra came back and got all 3 wins in his match, and Madsack cleaned up the night with 2 wins in the 7th spot, giving the Down Lo Stickmen a 13-8 victory.

A couple tables over, the Playa's were also home hosting the Tackle Box, who were on the road at the Down Lo for the 2nd straight week. It wasn't pretty. Getting right to it, the Playa's won 21-0.The Playa's dominated as much as you possibly could. Gregg and Amer even got the beer frame 2-0 beating Trevor and Zook. So here's the 3-0 list: Charles, Kevin, Leland, Gregg, Leo, Dwayne, and Larry. The Down Lo even had a record 4 break and runs during the night - Charles, Kevin, Leland, and Leo accomplished the task. On the bright side, the Tackle Box get to play their first home game of the season next week.

Upstairs at Duffy's Tavern, the Bankers started their season on the road after a week one bye. The Bankers got their season off on the right note with a close 11-10 win at Duffy's place. Paul and Shawn each got 3-0 wins for Duffy's, and Mark Murgia and Mark Edwards each got 3-0 wins for the Bankers. Ed and Shawn couldn't get the beer frame again as Jim Wilson and Mark Edwards stole the honors on the road. 

Out at the Last Call, the Diamondbacks were the road team, but they didn't play like it. At the break, the D-Backs were up 10-2 thanks to Kenny and Greg's 3-0 victories. Ricky and Rusty got 2 each. Kenny and Greg teamed up in the beer frame to defeat Kevin Nickas and Nick Altenberg 2-0. Jimmy Scott got 2 in the 5th spot, and Bulldog got 2 in the 6th spot, putting the Down Lo team up 14-4. But Rob Francis made it a little more respectable with a 3-0 showing in the 7th spot, making the final score 14-7 Diamondbacks.

The Bulldogs of the Oasis were home against the Down Lo Damned (the team formerly known as Towne Lounge I). The Damned were up 7-5 at the break thanks to Stephen Well's lead-off 3-0 win. The Chinese Connection of Yuli and Yang were back in the beer frame again teamed up against Captain Steve and Brian Augustine this time. Same results though - a beer frame win for the Damned. The Damned kept piling it on as Pat got 2 in the 5th spot, Yuli got 2 more, and Yang wrapped it up with 3 more at the end. Final score 14-7 Damned Loungers.

The Empire Club was on the bye last week. The Last Call Rack Pack get to take this week off.

Looking for another place to play pool? The Tackle Box will be hosting a tournament this Wednesday, November 7th. If my memory is correct, the buy-in is $5 and the spots will be picked around 6:00pm. Call the Tackle Box to make sure, or Jonny or Rich Jr.

Also - check your pool bags - a spotted cue ball came up missing at the Down Lo last Thursday night. If you picked it up, let me know, I'll return it to the proper captain no questions asked.

Good luck this week!


Week #1 Results!
Oct 30, 2012, 8:40 pm

Great news! After a few years of failed attempts, I have the web site hosting company (MySportSite) currently working on getting the win percentages to show up here on the website, eliminating the need for me to enter them all again in a spreadsheet to get the top shooter statistics. (Make that incredibly friggin' awesome news!) I'll update you as I know more. So no individual stats yet, but once it's ready I'll dump them all in. Sweeeet...! 

Ok, the first week is in the books! It looks like it got off without a hitch - including the inaugural night at Duffy's Tavern. Here's what went down...

The Eagles buzzed in the Oasis Bulldogs last Thursday at the 'Hall. The first half was close as the Bulldogs were up 7-5. Keith and Chris got 3-0 wins for the 'Dogs, as Bobbo kept things close with 3 of his own for the Eagles. Jon and Donny beat the Oasis tandem of Keith and Brian 2-1 for the Beer Frame win. In the second half Ed, Ty, and Steve-O got 5 points for the Bulldogs giving them a 12-9 victory on the road.

On the North end of town, the Last Call Rack Pack welcomed in the Durham Empire Club. Teams traded 2-1 games in the first half and the Empire was up 7-5 at the break. Bob Cody and Troy got the Beer Frame, beating Kevin L. and Pat C. 2-1. Troy went back to the table in the 5th spot and got 2, but Last Call Gary got 3 right back in the next frame. Empire failed to field a 7th shooter, so they gave the final 3 points to the 'Pack, making the final score 12-9 Last Call.

The Oasis O-Team was in a dogfight with the Down Lo Diamondbacks over at the Oasis. It was tied 6-6 at the break, and Mike Clarke and Slade got 2 wins each in the 5th and 6th spot putting them on the hill, 10-8. But Captain Mike Karol saved his stuff for last getting a 3-0 sweep in the last frame giving his team a last-second come-from-behind win on the road. Final score: 11-10 D-Backs.

The Down Lo Stickmen were home taking on the Spinners of the Tackle Box. Cele and Brian started off the season/night with back-to-back 3-0 wins. Sundy chipped in 2 more, but Tackle Box Bruce got 2 wins to stop the momentum. At the half it was 9-3 Stickmen. Scott and Madsack couldn't get the Beer Frame as Trevor and Bob took it 2-1. New Stickman Sam got 2 wins, as did Madsack in the bottom half. Keith finished the night with a 3-0 victory to give the Down Lo squad a 16-5 home win.

Also at the Down Lo, the returning champs from 2011-2012 started their repeat bid for the 2012-2013 season. Last season they went undefeated up until week 26, but they almost started this season 0-1. The Dragons were in the house bringing their A-game to table #10. It was 6-6 at the break, thanks to Kevin's 3-0 win. Micah, Steve, and Kenny each got 2 for the Dragons. Amer and Dwayne got the Beer Frame, defeating Aaron and John 2-1. Leo shot in the 5th spot and put some separation between them and the Oasis by getting all 3 of his. But Jeff won 2 of his, and Aaron won his first 2 to get the match tied at 10 going to the final game. Larry had to step up and save his team, which he did, in a close final matchup. I believe it came to each of them on the 8-ball. Great match, and the Playa's start out 1-0 as they win 11-10.

Way in the back of Duffy's Tavern lays a big 'ol table many people don't even know about. This year, Captain Ed Theis from the transplanted Towne Lounge II team is calling it home. They welcomed in their previous year's bar mates the Down Lo Damned Loungers (formerly Towne Lounge I). In another close match, the two teams were tied 6-6 after the 4th match. David Larabee got 3 for his Damned team, and Prana got 3 for his Duffy's crew. Ed Theis and Steve Swim couldn't beat the Yuli and Yang tandem and started their beer frame season 0-1, after getting 2nd place in 2011-2012. Ed stayed at the table and got 2 in the fifth spot, but Yang roared back and got 3 of his own in the sixth. In the final match, Steve McGrill got the winning point and one more to boot, giving his Damned Loungers a 12-9 victory.

The Oasis Bankers started their season on the bye once again (sorry guys), but at least now it's out of the way. This week the Empire Club 'gets' to stay in Durham (sorry guys).

Good luck in week #2. Remember: player dues (at the $17 rate) are due on November 6th, the Tuesday after this week's matches, at the Oasis. On November 7th, it goes up to $25 each player.

Keep watching for website stat updates.

Top Shooter 2011-2012
Jun 13, 2012, 12:28 am

Congratulations to the CMPL Top Shooter for 2011-2012

Kevin Cibart

Kevin came through on top in a very exciting 8-man Top Shooter Tournament at the Oasis Bar and Grill last Thursday night. Kevin had to fight his way through some of the best in the league to take home top honors for the 2nd year in a row. In the finals, he had to beat his teammate, Jason Colabove, to become the king of the hill. For his hard work, he earned $100 cash plus the coveted Top Shooter trophy to be given to him this Saturday at the Down Lo during the end of the year pool party and awards ceremony. Congratulations Kevin!


Speaking of pool party - only a few more days remain before the official end of the 2011-2012 season. All players are invited of course, and a guest. As usual - free beer, free food (pot luck and tri-tip), awards, raffle, and many tournaments on the Down Lo array of tables. The party starts around 1:00pm on this Saturday, June 16th. Captains - please remind your players. And everyone - please bring a prize to be raffled! If we want to compete with the Women's prize table, to make more money for our league, we need to sell a lot of tickets and have some great prizes. Please help me out before we take a break for the Summer. Many captains expressed a desire to help me out during the Captain's meeting last October - here's your chance. Call me if you have any questions and/or prizes.

Downstairs at the Down Lo, starting at 1:00pm, we'll have a tri-tip dinner provided by the Meat Locker and Mike Clarke, a huge pot-luck ensemble, FREE BEER (yes, FREE!), awards and honorable mentions, various pool tournaments around the bar, and the show-stealer of the night, the raffle!

Call me if you have any questions or any great prizes - 966-5632.



3rd Place
May 29, 2012, 9:35 pm

Congratulations to the Down Lo Diamondbacks and the Oasis O-Team on a great season! They played their 3rd/4th place match at the Down Lo last Thursday. I haven't seen the score sheet, so I don't know the particulars, but I did hear from Captain Mike Clarke that the Diamondbacks were the winners and therefore the 2011-2012 CMPL 3rd Place Team! Congratulations!

So I'm getting closer to putting the trophy order in. I've got the Beer Frame Champions (Playa's), our 3rd Place team (Diamondbacks), and most improved (can't tell you yet). All that's left is 1st and 2nd place which we will find out this Thursday (at the Down Lo), and our Top Shooter (next Thursday at the Oasis). All these trohies will be handed out at the end-of-the-year party on Saturday June 16th at the Down Lo.

The Championship match will be as follows:

#1 Seed Down Lo Playa's vs. #3 Seed Oasis Bulldogs, at the Down Lo, 7:00pm, Thursday May 31st.

The game will be played on Table #8

All right then, we'll see you there!

Still looking for your raffle prize(s) by the way. You know who you are... just about everyone. Call me at 966-5632 if you have any donations, suggestions, or questions.
