Week 7 Recap: The Big Pretenders…

3 06 2012

After 6 weeks of bliss and praise, the Meatballs are no longer the darlings of the league.  The Cinderella season took a big hit on Wednesday night.   They went 0-for-3 in the night, and oh, how painful they were.

License to Roll, needing to keep pace to make it into the playoffs, beat the Meatballs 18-11.   The sourness just started for the night, on the next game the couldn’t stop What Up, Biocce? and came up short-handed 16-13.   Later on That’s How We Roll stopped a skid of their own by edging the Meatballs 12-11.   Meatballs now have lost 4 in a row.  With 2 games left on the season their standings in the playoffs still very much in doubt now, after a terrific start.

The other darlings of the season The Big Lebocce, also have their dreams of playoffs put on hold as they ran into the defending champs  and didn’t have an  answer to the 13 points Days of Thunder put on the board against the Lebocce’s 10.  The freshmen Los Bollarinos B.C. make themselves very likeable on the courts by providing the league sweets and baked goods.  But that’s not the only good thing going for them, they beat the “Dudes” and “Dudettes” 16-6 on their only game of the night. The Big Lebocce another team that looked destined for the playoffs, need to find their winning ways if they want to play on the second season.

Swim, Bike, Bocce showed us why you should never give up.   Trailing in the game 12-5 before the officials let them know there were 3 frames left, they showed up and score 3 points in each of those last 3 frames and finish winning the match 14-12 against Days of Thunder.  Their luck continued into the next game by beating the red-hot License to Roll 14-12 in the off-ramp.

What Up, Biocce? swept the night by also beating Bocce Said She was 18 14-11.  What Up kept their hopes of playoff competition alive by winning both of their games. But right now they stand outside looking in.  For a team that had to forfeit 3 games, they have now won 4 out of their last 5 games.  If not for that fateful night, where would they stand?

The Segals had the game within reach, but came up short on the last frame and fell to Boccelism 11-10 in their first game.  They would win against Bocce Said She Was 18 16-12.   Right now it looks like playoff games are not in the cards for the Segals but if they want a chance, they have to win their last 2 games.

Team Schweddy won their third game in a row, this time against Revenge of WAH 17-8.  The Schweddys jump up two more spots on the standings. They need to keep it up, but they seem to have turn the corner.

Another night of low scoring and close games, for the second time this season, nobody scored 21 points. The idle Bocce Bartokomous now are atop the league. But how feeble are the standings at this point? Only the top 2 teams have seemingly clinched playoff spots but even then, they could fall all they way to 8th if they don’t play their cards the right way. From the 3rd spot all the way to the 13th spot nobody is saved from elimination.

Here are the standings:
