Week #18 Results
Mar 13, 2011, 5:52 pm

Here's the results for Week #18-

The Dragons were home hosting the Empire Club of Durham. Ty got a 3-0 win to start the night off for the 'Club, but Micah came back and got a 3-0 win for his Dragons soon after that. The teams went into the Beer Frame with Durham up 7-5. Nate and Steve got the Beer Frame, defeating Ian and Paul 2-1. The Dragons put the pedal to the metal and finished the night getting 8 of the last 9. Aaron and John each got 3-0 wins, as Steve got 2, giving the Dragons a 13-8 home win.

The Nuggets were also home at the O, taking on the Original O's. The Nuggets jumped to an 8-4 lead at the break, thanks to Kenny Duff's 3-0 effort. Kenny stayed at the table and teamed up with Mike Karol to take on Mike Clarke and Slade. The Nuggets kept the heat on the Playa's in the Beer Frame trophy race by beating the O's 2-1. Mike Clarke got the O's right back in it in the 5th frame by getting all 3 of his. Leland came up next and got 2 for the O's, making the score tied 9-9. Mike Karol came to the table and won decisively 3-0 to put the Nuggets up for good, 12-9.

The Towne Lounge I squad was at home hosting the Oasis 8-Ballers. Both teams were tied 6-6 going into the Beer Frame. Tony got all 3 of his games for the Lounge, and Matt Gabbard got all of his for the 'Ballers. Matt G. was joined at the table by Rob to help him in the Beer Frame, as they faced Amer and Tony. The Lounge came away winners, 2-1. In the second half, Kevin and Jason each got 2 putting the Lounge up 10-8 going into the final match. Doug got the first two of his games tying it up at 10, but Amer came through in the 21st game, getting the Lounge the deciding point and an 11-10 victory.

The Stickmen were home underground hosting the Hammer Heads of Last Call. The Hammerheads were up early 7-5, thanks to Rich Sr.'s lead-off 3-game winner. Rich Jr. and Sean shot the Beer Frame (surprise), taking on Cele and Keith. Keith's kilt wasn't enough to distract the Last Call duo, and they won the beer, 2-1. The Stickmen woke up in the second half, winning 8 in a row. Keith got all 3, as did Leo. Madsack almost got the clean-sweep, but lost the final game to Rich Jr, making the final score 13-8 Stickmen.

On the main table at the Down Lo, the Playa's were hosting their upstairs neighbors, the Towne Lounge II club. The Playa's were doing their thing as they were up 9-3 at the mid-way point, thanks to Gregg and Kevin's 3-0 wins. Charles had to settle with 2, making the him and Kevin tied again at the top of the Top Shooter list. Jason and Kevin had their turn in the Beer Frame, needing a win to keep ahead of the Nuggets in the Beer Frame trophy race. They got it done, beating Ed and Steve Swim 2-0. The Playa's failed to play a 7th Playa', so they forfeited the last match. The final score was a relatively close 12-9 Playa' win.

The Bulldogs were on their bye week. The Hammerheads now have a week off when we all play again March 24th. Again, no games on March 17th - St. Patrick's Day. The bars are going to be just too crazy to have fair games around town. Practice where you can, and good luck in week #19!


Results from Week #17
Mar 9, 2011, 6:03 pm

Here's the scoop-

The Bulldogs were home at the Oasis taking on the visiting Towne Lounge I. The 'Dogs were up big, 9-3 at the half, but the Lounge fought back and ended up losing 'just' 13-8. Dennis Bruch had a 3-0 match, including the first one via 8-Ball Break-and-Run. Frank also had a 3-0 win for the Bulldogs in the final frame. Jason Jones stayed hot as he got all 3 and climbed up the top shooter list, currently tied for third. Nothing was written in the beer frame section, so no details as of yet.

Out at the Last Call, the Hammerheads were home against the Empire Club. The Empire handled the Sharks pretty well, and ended up winning 11-10, even while forfeiting the last match because of a lack of players. Sean and Rich Jr. were back together again in the beer frame, and beat Eric and Ian.

The Oasis O's were 'home' versus their bar-mates, the Oasis Dragons, where it was feast-or-famine night. Each game, except for Kenny vs. Stacy, was a 3-0 match, one way or the other. The O's were up big at the half, 8-4, thanks to Mike Clarke and Josh Vazquez - they each got 3. Brennon kept it from getting out of hand with his 3-0 hat trick. Leland and Slade won the beer frame, beating Nate and Steve. Hot-shooter Steve stayed at the table and got 3 to make it 8-7, but Leland and Joel shot 6th and 7th and each got 3 wins, giving the Oasis O's a final score of 14-7. Very strange night!

The Towne Lounge II team was taking on the 'Ballers of Oasis. Mike Von Ritter of the Lounge got all 3 of his games, as did Matt Altenburg of the 8-Ballers. The tandem of Rob and Matt Gabbard won the beer frame for the Ballers, as they defeated Mike and Ed. The final score was 12-9 in favor of the Lounge II.

The last match of the week was at the Down Lo, as the Playa's were home hosting the Nuggets. The Playa's kept their weekly average up, scoring 14 to the Nugget's 7. Charles moved to the top of the Top Shooter's list, as he got all 3 of his games. Captain Leitner got all 3 of his as well. The Playa's couldn't get the beer frame, as the Mike Karol/Mike Brandt Sr. team took care of business against the Charles/Jason duo. The Nuggets beer frame win gets them within one win of the Playa's in the Beer Frame standings - the Playa's have 13 wins, the Nuggets have 12 beer frames.

It will be down to the wire in these last few weeks - in the standings, the beer frame trophy race, and the Top Shooter standings. Can't wait to see how it all shakes out!

The Bulldogs will be on their bye week this week, which should shuffle around the top of the standings. Don't forget - no pool league on St. Patrick's Day, March 17th.

Good luck in week #18!


Week #16 results
Mar 3, 2011, 1:34 am

All righty. Here's the results from last Thursday:

The 8-Ballers of Oasis were 'home' taking on the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs were on fire and ended the night with a 15-6 romp. Keith, Frank, and Steve all got 3-0 wins to help the cause. It wasn't all bad for the 'Ballers - the Matt G. and Rob tandem got the Beer Frame honors.

Also at the Oasis, the Original O's were home hosting the Hammerheads of Last Call. This game was even uglier as Josh and Slade each got 3 wins, and everyone else got 2 wins for the O, as the Originals cruised to a 16-5 thumping of the Hammerheads. Making it worse, the Last Call squad had to take the dreaded Beer Frame receipt back to their bar as Rich Jr. and Lloyd couldn't win against Leland and Slade.

Making the Oasis even more chaotic, the Dragons were also at home hosting the first place Down Lo Playa's. As Stacy's bartenders were slinging drinks left and right, a good match was taking place on the back table. The Playa's were only up 7-5 at the Beer Frame. Gregg helped his team with a 3-0 hat trick, and Steve Hambek helped keep it close with a 3-0 effort of his own. Charles and Kevin beat Nate and Aaron in the Beer Frame. Aaron came back to the table and got one win, his dad was next and got two, and Jeff Brun finished the night with three - thanks to the Playa's not able to field a 7th Playa. The Dragons finished on top with a close 11-10 victory.

Downtown the Stickmen of Down Lo were hosting their upstairs neighbors, the Towne Lounge I team. Tony struck first and quickly with a 3-0 win to start the night - helping his team get to 8-4 at the break. Mark Nobriga and Sundy swept the Beer Frame 2-0 against Tyler and David Larabee. Leo shot sixth and got a 3-0 victory, but Jason Jones shot last and got 3 for himself, leaving the Lounge with a win, 13-8.

Meanwhile, upstairs at the Lounge, the other team - Lounge II - was hosting the only Oasis team on the road - the Nuggets. This match was very close as both teams were tied 6-6 at the Beer Frame. It must have moved quickly as in the top half Mike Karol, Mike Brandt Sr., and Rusty Piazza all got 8-ball break-and-runs in their matches. Kenny Duff and Jimmy Scott teamed up for the Nugz against Shawn Bell and Rusty in the Beer Frame. Kenny and Jimmy were victorious, getting 2 out of 3. Shawn got 2, and Richard got 2, for the Lounge putting them on the hill, up 10-8 going into the final match. Kenny Duff turned out to be the hero as he won all 3 of his games in the final match and propelled his team to a close, come from behind, 11-10 Oasis win.

Looks like we are back on track - everyone got their scoresheets in on time - THANK YOU!

The Stickmen have a bye this week - word is that Weazel Dogg will be at the Down Lo buying free drinks anyways this Thursday. So stop in and get a freebie on the 'Dogg. Congratulations to former Stickmen player Jesse Uribe - he'll be tying the knot as he and his fiance Roxanna are getting married on Saturday. Nice knowing you, Jesse!

Good luck in Week #17. Only six weeks to go (five weeks to go if you haven't had your second-half bye yet)!


Bad news from the Empire
Mar 3, 2011, 1:03 am

It doesn't seem like the Empire can ever get a break. Unfortunately the team lost a good friend, Larry Rohde, on February 16th, 2010. Now, almost exactly a year later, Mike Dixon has recently informed me that his teammate James Williams is currently in intensive care, battling a bad case of pneumonia. He is currently hospitalized in Oroville, room 603. His captain, his teammates, and his family all ask you find some time and send a prayer his way. Get well soon, James.

Week #15 Results:
Feb 23, 2011, 12:47 am

Here's the dealio for Week #15:

The Down Lo Playa's welcomed in the Oasis 8-Ballers last week. The Playa's jumped out to an 8-4 lead at the break thanks to Kevin's 3-0 win. Jason and Charles teamed up for the Beer Frame against Matt and Rob. The home team came away with the victory, 2-0. The next two matches belonged to the Playa's as well - Jason and Charles each got all of their games. Tom LeClaire chipped in one more to give the Down Lo Globetrotter All-Star team another big win - 15-6.

Meanwhile, on the North side of town, some of us mortals were playing pool. The Hammerheads were taking on the Towne Lounge II squad at the Last Call. It was a tight match in the first half - Paul Lampright, the newest TL II member, got his first 3 wins of his CMPL career. Jerry, Josh, and Sean all got 2 for the home team leaving it at 6-6 going into the beer frame. Hammerhead newbie Charles teamed up with the veteran Rich Jr. to take on Ed and Shawn Bell. The Lounge came out with the honors getting 2 in a row. Ed stayed at the table and got all 3 of his games, Rusty then got 2, and Shawn wrapped it up with 1 to leave the final score 12-9 Towne Lounge II.

The Oasis was kinda quiet as only 1 table was being used by the pool league. Table One had the Bulldogs 'home' versus the Oasis O's. The Bulldogs struck first as Keith got all 3 of his to start the night. Captain Mike came back in the 3rd match and got all 3 for his crew. Dennis and Leland each got 2 for their respected teams and the match was tied 6-6 at the break. James and Slade played for the Oasis O's and John Denton paired up with Ray for the 'Dogs. James and Slade won 2 in a row leaving Stacy with the bill. Slade came back to the table in the 6th spot and got all 3 of his, helping to propel his team to a final score of 12-9, Oasis O's.

Also at the Down Lo, the Stickmen were hosting the Empire team on the back table. Cele shot out of the gates for the Stickmen getting all 3. Larry and Wheez got 2 each, Scott got one, helping the club to an 8-4 Beer Frame lead. Cele and Keith couldn't get the job done in the Beer Frame - they got the first one, but gave the next two up to the Empire's Mike D. and Ty. Keith and Leo each got 2 more as the final score ended up 13-8 Stickmen.

The Towne Lounge I team was home hosting the Oasis Nuggets, but that's all I know. No scoresheet has been turned in as of yet. I will post the scores and stats and a recap once they become available.

In the meantime, be sure to vote in the very enlightening, deep, thought-provoking poll posted this week (bottom right-hand corner of the screen). Be prepared to have your mind blown, man.

The Empire Club can stay home this Thursday - they've got the bye. Look for their Twitter posts as they inform us all on what, or who, they're doing in Durham. 


Week #14 Results
Feb 16, 2011, 12:28 am

'Sup everyone-

Here are the results for week #14 - 2/10/11:

The 8-Ballers were home hosting the traveling Stickmen at the Oasis. It was a close one at the break as the teams were tied 6-6. Wheezel Dogg broke out a 3-0 win to help keep his team in it. Scott and Keith couldn't handle the Rob and Matt Gabbard onslaught in the beer frame and lost it 2-0. Matt stayed at the table and got 2 wins in the 5 spot, Brian kicked Scott's ass 3-0, but Madsack got 2 out of 3 against Doug to keep the loss at a respectable 12-9. Chock up a win for the 'Ballers.

Also at the Oasis, their was an inter-bar matchup between the Nuggets and the Dragons. The Nugz shot out of the gate and won the first 10 games in a row - Kenny Duff, Mike Karol, and Mike Brandt Sr. each got 3-0 wins, and Izzy got his first game. But Jeff Brun started the comeback tour and got the final 2 of the first half, leaving the Nuggets out in front 10-2 at the break. Steve and Nate kept the momentum going getting the Beer Frame from Kenny and Lee. Steve got 2 for the Dragons, Nate got 1, and Micah wrapped up the night with a 3-0 victory to bring the Dragons from the brink of disaster to a could-be-worse 13-8 loss to the Nuggets.

Downtown, the Lounge II were home hosting the Oasis Bulldogs. The Bulldogs started out strong taking an 8-4 lead to the half as Dennis got all 3 of his games. Shawn Bell teamed up with Rusty to beat Steve Smith and Ray Hubbard for the Beer Frame honors. Shawn and Steve stayed at the table to go head-to-head for 3 games. Shawn got the better of him winning 2 of 3. Mike Von Ritter was up 6th for his first match of the year, as he climbed to the top of the standings with a 3-0 victory, making him 100% for the year. Steve Swim wrapped up the night with 2 more, including the match-winning 21st game, giving the Lounge II an 11-10 come-from-behind victory.

The Playa's were home hosting the Hammerheads of Last Call. The Hammerheads knew they were entering the first place team's home turf, but took it like men and battled it out for a 16-5 loss. Henry Dorsey, aka Walter, won the first 3 of the night, punctuating the set with a 3rd game break-and-run. Brian, Gregg, and Kevin all got 2 after that. Gregg and Kevin teamed up to take on the familiar tandem of Rich Jr. and Sean. The Playa's got the 2 and the Beer Frame. In the bottom half, Mike came in and got all 3 for the Lo, Sean got 2 of his for the 'Heads, and Charles wrapped the night up by rubbing in a final 3-0 victory to seal the Hammerhead's fate.

The Towne Lounge I squad was on the road in Durham last week, but Empire captain Mike lost(?) his binder and the scoresheet so there is no record of the game. He insists the score was 13-8 Empire, and he was quick to add that he got all 3 of his games, but until I receive the visitor's scoresheet from Jason Jones and Company, we'll have to wait and see. I took Mike's word for it and entered the team score that way, 13-8 Empire, so the standings are current (barring any correction), but the individual stats for those two team's shooters, and top shooter list, and the beer frame rankings, will have to wait to be updated once I receive a copy of the scoresheet. More details to follow. 

The Chico bars will be quiet again as we are blessed with a Dragon bye week. Enjoy the serenity and good luck in Week #15.


Week #13 Results
Feb 9, 2011, 1:56 am

Here are the results for week 13, February 3rd matches:

The Bulldogs were home at the Oasis versus their bar-mates, the Dragons. The Bulldogs had a slight lead at the break, 7-5, thanks to Bulldog Chris getting all three of his games. The Beer Frame had John and Brian up for the 'Dogs taking on Nate and Micah for the 'Drags Dragons. The Dragons came away with the win this time. In the bottom half, Captain Steve came out with a 3-0 win for the Bulldogs, and his teammates cruised home with a 13-8 victory.

The Nuggets were also home at the cozy confines of the Oasis hosting the Stickmen of Down Lo. The Nuggets were up 7-5 at the break, thanks to Kenny Duff and Mike Karol's 3-0 efforts. Cele helped keep it close with his own 3-0 win for the Stickmen. Lee and Matt stole the Beer Frame from Cele and Sundy - the Down Lo tandem got the first win, but Lee and Matt got the next two in a row to win the free beer. Keith started off the final matches with a 3-0 victory for the Stickmen, and Leo chipped in 2 wins, making the score 10-8 Down Lo going into the final matchup - Izzy versus Madsack. Izzy got the first game making it 9-10, but Madsack got the 2nd game giving the Stickmen a come from behind 11-10 victory, as Izzy got the final game.

The Empire marched into town to battle the Playa's of Down Lo. As with many teams facing the first place Playa's, the Empire walked away with few points. The Down Lo spanked the 'Club 15-6. It was all 2-0 victories for the Playa's, except for Brian Griffin's 3-0 showing. Kevin and Jason teamed up for another Playa Beer Frame win, beating Mike Dixon and Paul Leroy. 

The Town Lounge II squad had the bar to themselves as their parent-team, the Lounge I, was on vacation (bye week). The Lounge raided the liquor cabinet, burned the couch, broke Howard's vase, and partied like rock stars as the Original O's were invited to the party. The home team was up 8-4 at the break, thanks to Captain Ed' 3-0 hat trick. The Oasis comeback started in the Beer Frame as Ed and Steve had a rare loss to Stacy and Josh. Josh stayed at the table and got 2 wins, Slade got 1, and Joel got all 3 to come oh-so-close and make the final score Lounge 11, Oasis 10. No arrests were made.

The scoresheet from the north side of town was finally retrieved - The Hammerheads of Last Call were home taking on the Oasis 8-Ballers. The teams traded 2-1 games in the first half and entered the Beer Frame with the Hammerheads up 7-5. The Sean and Rich Jr. tandem got the first beer frame win, but Rob and Matt struck back with two in a row to win the honors. In the second half, Matt, Jimmy, and Pops all got 2 wins for the 'Ballers to win a close one 11-10. Hats off to Pops getting the final 2 to put his team on top. 8-Baller's Brian and Matt also each had impressive (and rare) 8-ball break and run wins to help the cause.

Good luck in Week #14 - unless you are the Oasis O's - you got a bye. Get Stacy out of the bar and let him go home for once!

Top Shooter and Beer Frame leader boards are finally updated - sorry for the wait.
