Boasters League Final round first half~~

Butter Nutz’ lead proved too big in the end. The last week bye notwithstanding, they still picked up 20 points in makeup matches which was more than enough to hold off the surging Mongoose who would have ended up first with their 47 points had Butter Nutz remained completely idle. But hats off to Vivio’s. Seems to be becoming a trend that one team decides to find inspiration in the final few days and although it’s leaving the impetus way too late, the 66 points they scored must be close to a record for one week. They jumped 3 places to third overall. In other news, the Nicker Ballers had been last since round 3, but somehow they managed to avoid ending up there as they moved ahead of the Wardogs relegating them to the wooden spoon status.

Overall, this half season was respectable. You can make your own opinions about that based on the list of stats below:

  • 82% of matches were completed for the first half. Good – but not great. The record was set last year with 85%. 
  • Butter Nutz played the most matches with 90%. Not a record either. Winky-Dinks had 91% for the first half last year. Their 300 points is also 2 points shy of the record. 
  • Paddy’s Dropshots played the least amount of matches with 76%. 
  • Best winning percentage goes to Vivio’s with 62%. If Vivio’s had played the same amount of matches as Butter Nutz they may have ended up first. 
  • Lowest winning percentage was Winky-Dinks with 38%. 
  • Mongoose had the most bonus points with 108. With an average of 13.5 a week, that accounts for 38% of their total. Butter Nutz were second with 97. 
  • Least amount of bonus points goes to Paddy’s Dropshots with 60. That’s low. 
  • 20 players picked up all 8 bonus points. 5 of those played for Mongoose. 4 players didn’t pick up any. 
  • The most points picked up in any one round was Butter Nutz. They scored 45 points in rounds 5 and 6. The least amount was in Round 9 by the Nicker Ballers with 17. 
  • 36 players completed their 8 matches. Not even close to the record. 
  • Of those 36, 3 players went undefeated: Jed Elley (Vivio’s); Zac MacVoy (Foss Nation); and Tripp Kennedy (Paddy’s Dropshots). Jed and Tripp Also scored the most individual points overall with 29. 
  • The most anyone scored on the Butter Nutz team was 22 (Brendan Hanley). Just goes to show what a true team effort it was. 
  •  All 17 matches in any one round were completed twice.

So, not record numbers, but still a pretty impressive to say the least. Now, I need a little time to painstakingly go through everyone’s results and see if they need to be moved up or down or stay put. Some players will be removed, some players will have to move team, some players will be happy to see where they end up for the second half and no doubt some players will not. I am in the unfortunate position of not being able to please everyone, so I apologize in advance, don’t take it personally. Either way, we should in store for a bumper second half as the league gets serious. Be ready to play. Your team needs to be in the top 6 positions by the end of round 9 if you wish to be a part of the finals!
