And the survivors from the melee are…

18 06 2012

On a night that MANY teams could had made it easy for themselves on the standings, almost all of them folded, and folded big time. Now we have FOUR teams with 8-4 record and another FOUR teams with a 6-6 record, in total 10 teams vying for an 8 team playoff spots. Before we get there, a recap of the night…

On a game that had first place implications Bocce Bartokomous vs Days of Thunder , our last years summer champions and our fall champs met respectively , and in what could be a playoff match, the Thunders took the first jab and won the night 16-9.

Revenge of WAH would forfeit the night and give a 10-0 wins against Boccelism and Cojones Loco. The game agains the Cojones with playoffs implications.

Swim, Bike, Bocce could had punch their own ticket into the playoffs by beating That’s How We Roll. But in the first of many chokes in the night, Swim, Bike, Bocce fails their task and falls to How We Roll 18-10.  That’s How We Roll then put themselves on position to win their own birthright into the playoffs with a win in their next game.

In the theme of the night, That’s How We Roll, can’t put the nail in the coffin against License to Roll and fall on a close one 16-13.

Team Schweddy coming into the night with a foot on the playoffs, and only needing one win out of their remaining 2 games, couldn’t find their stride and fall at their opportunity for an easy way into the playoffs by choking against Bocce Said She was 18 20-6.   Then adding shame by losing 14-11 against Cojones Loco.

Los Bollarinos B.C. looking for some freshmen luck needed to win both of their night games to have a praying chance into the playoffs but lose both of their games, first against the Segals 18-4.   And later on against What Up, Biocce? 16-9.

Now, the  final standings of the Spring season….

15 Revenge of WAH 2 10 0.167 112 165 -53 9.33 13.75

The reasoning for the standings after careful consideration…

Days of Thunder is number 1, because they defeated Bartokomous (16-9), License to Roll (15-11), AND Cojones Loco (21-7).
Bocce Bartokomous #2 because they beat License to Roll (18-8), and the Cojones (14-13)
License to Roll #3 they beat the Cojones (11-9)
Cojones Loco #4 for having most wins against other teams, but didn’t beat anybody in the 8-4 standings.
Meatballs #5 – only team to 7 wins.

Now for the teams tied 6-6, it wasn’t as easy, because some teams didn’t face each other during the season, so our first Tie-breaker, head-to-head matches, couldn’t be used fairly. So we went with our second Tie-breaker which is point differentials and that leaves us with our current standings.
