At the end of week 4, the “Fruit Loops” were sitting 13 points back from the last play-off spot with little reason to suggest that was going to change over the final 3 rounds. However, they have now put themselves in serious contention for the finals, hanging just 3 points back of 4th placed “Going Bananas”. The same cannot be said for the last 3 teams although they also inched closer overall to the ladder leaders, but nowhere near enough to be considered a threat (yet?).

The “Pickled Onions” continue to impress with their string of victories. They are miles away from being the team with the most matches played – in fact they have the second lowest percentage with 52% – but they have only lost 3 matches all season. The teams with the highest playing percentage (70%) are 1st and 2nd on the standings, plus they have the most bonus points.

In the battle of the league point leaders after round 4, Tom Bergh (“Going Bananas”) went down to Brian Rosman (“Pickled Onions”) 2-1. Brian is still the league’s top point getter, but he now shares that honor with his team mate Peter Fortune, and “Cold TurkeyChato Hill. The closest match of the evening came down to the final rally. Taylor Burleson (“Sour Grapes”) beat Maureen D’Avanzo (“Rotten Tomatoes”) 15-14 in the 3rd game to claim the 2-1 victory. This is Taylor’s first win for the season! Well done!

Two rounds to play. Many matches to make up. You better start scrambling…!
