Week 8: Tight ball games looking for relief….

10 06 2012

With plenty of Bocce to be decided, week 8 brought the best on the court from most teams and the playoff picture is a little bit clearer, but positioning is not.

First a night recap:

The Meatballs have guaranteed themselves a spot in the playoffs with a win over Revenge of WAH 13-10.  However, their positioning within the playoffs is very murky at the moment.

Bocce Bartokomous playing in the highest scoring game of the season won 21-15 against Revenge of WAH.   But would split the night after falling to Team Schweddy 17-15 in a very contested battle.

In a game for playoff survival Swim, Bike, Bocce defeated What Up, Biocce? 12-10, a game that was up for the winning in every frame.  With the loss What Up is officially out of the playoffs, while Swim, Bike, Bocce would make things harder for themselves by losing to Bocce Said She was 18 21-4.

Cojones Loco fighting for playoff life too, defeated The Big Lebocce 20-14.  A game that was a necessary win for both teams.  Cojones is almost guaranteed a spot in the playoffs after defeating the fledgling Segals 8-7 (yes, no team could muster 10 points on this one). Don’t know if that score is great bocce or great shame.

The Big Lebocce finish the season in dreadful fashion losing 5 of their last 6 games, the last one against License to Roll 19-3. The License for the playoffs has been approved, however the Lebocce’s pass is on hold, depending on the outcomes of week 9 games.

Boccelism sends the Meatballs their last defeat of the regular season 15-7.  Fortunately for the Meatballs they are now in the playoffs, even if in overcooked fashion.

Week 9 storylines….

Bocce Bartokomous and Days of Thunder will meet in the off-ramp this Wednesday, the winner of the game will be the number 1 seat in the playoffs.

Cojones Loco and Team Schweddy both teams play 2 games, the last one against each other.  Playoff life and positioning is in the line for these two teams.  Nothing is guaranteed at the moment.  Win their first one, playoff bound.  Lose second one, positioning.   Lose both….maybe out of the playoffs.

License To Roll could win their last game and end the season 8-4, their best playoff standing would be the #3 seed.

Swim, Bike, Bocce win: playoffs, lose: and all kind of scenarios happens.

Big Lebocce have put their faith in other teams, can only watch their dream season without any say

That’s How We Roll if they manage to win both of their remaining games, they can make it, win only once…will have to see who survives the rumble.

Bocce Said She was 18 can only win, by a lot, and hope that point differentials and head-to-head matchups are in their favor.

Los Bollarinos B.C. can win both games and be spoilers for many teams and have a long, long shot at making the playoffs.

Segals, Boccelism, Revenge of WAH can play spoilers on the last night.

With all that being said, here are the standings:
