Week 6 Recap: Volatile standings

25 05 2012

What do the numbers 7, 4, 2 mean?

This are the last 3 weeks standings of the Bocce Bartokomous. And on Wednesday, they would win the night outright.

On the first game of the night the Bartokomous would find themselves against one of our Cinderella stories, The Big Lebocce. But the “Dude” didn’t have an answer, Bartokomous  would end up winning 14-9, in their closest competition they would get on the night. The off-ramp and Swim, Bike, Bocce didn’t have an answer either and fell 21-6. Boccelism didn’t fare any better and found themselves on the wrong side of a 17-5 match.

After 3 losses in a row Team Schweddy made a jump of it’s own this week, moving up 4 spots and putting themselves in the playoff picture after dispatching Boccelism 18-4. Later on they would leap frog the short-handed Swim, Bike, Bocce on the standings by beating them 14-8. Is this a mirage or are they making a stand?

The Segals had their best night of the season so far, first by defeating Revenge of WAH 16-12. Then on a Fall-2011-playoff rematch would put the Segals against Days of Thunder and revenge was clearly on their mind. After being bumped out of the playoffs last season, they turn the tables and won the match 17-5, handling the defending champs their worst loss of the season 17-5.  Is this a turning point on the season or just a desperate attempt?

The undefeated Meatballs kept it going in their first game of the night by defeating Los Bollarinos B.C. 13-10 on a very tight match.  With the win, the Meatballs have surpassed any previous winning total in their history and seem posed to be part of the post-season for the first time, barring any catastrophe.   The gravy train would hit a snag though, Days of Thunder, and the perfect season is no more after falling 16-8.

The Big Lebocce would flirt with 2 loses in a row, but were able to hang close the whole match against Revenge of WAH, and entering the last frame down by one, they did the necessary rolls and pull out a win at the last moment by squeezing a 14-13 win.

Meatballs and The Big Lebocce (formerly Joey and the Pussycats) have suffered their time at the bottom of the league in previous seasons, but have surely found their stride this year and after going a combined 7-17 last season, this two teams now carry a 12-3 combined record.  Can they keep it going?

To round out the night What Up, Biocce? would hand That’s How we Roll their fourth loss in a row by scoring 14-10 on their only game of the night.

The playoff picture is taking shape after 6 weeks of play, 3 more weeks to go, 14 out of 15 teams are mathematically on the hunt.  The last 3 playoff spots looks like they are there for the taking for any team of the teams that are currently out of the top 8 if they can finish the season strong.

Don’t believe me?  Here are the standings after 6 weeks of play:
