Not exactly a sizzling start for the 2010 Summer League, the first night of action only saw 10 out of a possible 32 matches played. With few players turning up, it may just increase the importance of that bonus point. Three teams picked up 5 bonus points each and surprise, surprise, they occupy 3 of the top 4 spots in the standings already. Considering that only the top 4 teams will be advancing to the finals and there are only 7 rounds to get there, teams may find themselves falling behind awfully quickly with very little time to catch up.

The “Pickled Onions” have taken command of the standings early winning 3 of their 4 matches yesterday over the “Fruit Loops”, with Brandon Dobbins making a strong statement to all the other number 6’s in the league as he claimed a sound 3-0 victory over Chuck Doyle. Brandon’s team mate and new comer, Brian Rosman, also had a great start winning 3-0 against Rob Wilson.

Mike McCuish of “Sour Grapes” tackled another new face in Mike Rock (“Bitter Lemons”). Probably giving away 30 years (give or take…), Mike McCuish managed to win 3-0, but in his e-mail to me the next day he said he had to work so hard for the win that he’ll need at least one week to recover!

Hopefully the attendance will improve in the coming rounds, and players will not leave their make-up matches until the final week – which is less than 2 months away.
