Boasters League round 5~~

Count on Patrick Petz to push his team to the top. Well, almost to the top. “Town Pump” decided to flex a little muscle in round 5 and his team pretty much dominated the evening. Nine of twelve matches completed (of which they won 6), and another 9 bonus points to boot propelled his team to within 1 point of the league leaders “Old Shillelagh” and in doing so also created a very comfortable 24 point cushion from 3rd placed “Vivio’s”.

The biggest loser of the week was “The Tap Bar”. Last week they were sitting blissfully in third, enjoying a 12 point buffer to the next team. But the bye week hit them hard, and they obviously sat on the laurels not bothering to make up too many matches. In fact, they only picked up 1 point in the week and have now dropped to 5th place forcing themselves to fight hard for the remainder of the season in order not to miss the play-offs.

Speaking of missing the play-offs, it looks like “Jacoby’s” have already thrown in the towel. With 40 points in 5 rounds, it doesn’t bode well for them. I would love for them to prove me wrong and start to make a tremendous comeback, but all indications just point to the contrary. Things are also looking a little weary for the “Speakeasys”. They are holding onto the last play-off spot by a meager 2 points and have the round 6 bye. Unless they get some matches done over the week, they very well may find themselves in the basement too, struggling to dig out.

There was a decent crowd and plenty of matches played last night – the best showing we have had for weeks. There were also a handful of close matches. Brittany Paquette (“1st Place Lounge”) is finding her winning rhythm with a tough 2-1 victory over Jim Kelly (“Anchor”); Brendon Fossee (“Town Pump”) scored an excellent 2-1 win over Scott Langenburg (“Vivio’s”); Ken MacDonald (“Old Shillelagh”) was impressive with his 2-1 triumph over Mike Hayden (“O’Blivions”).

So now the clock is ticking faster. We are in the final month of the regular season, the DAC Classic is coming up next week, and time is running out quickly to get your matches done. Mark the unmovable deadline on your calendars for results to be reported: March 1 (inclusive).
