Luke Muhlbauer lead the way with a perfect 5-0 night. Mike Stewart, Matt "Doc" Taggart and Wade "True Blue" Mount each collected four wins to flex the Varsity 1's collective muscles.

At Careys the White Gloves of Whimps crushed the Careys 9Ballers by a score of 18-7. "Skinny" Smith collected the inner game loot and five wins to pace the White Gloves. Glenny Mac and Rob Leckband also chipped in with four wins for the night. The trio of Luke Lacey, "DB" Hovalt and "MOJO" Reiser lead the pathetic path for Careys 1 with two wins each.

At Maya Janes it was league leading Maya Janes 2 issuing a 16-9 clubbing of Maya Janes 3. Troy Nicks was a hot shooting 5-0 and got some help from Brian Lambertz' four wins. Four of the MJ3 shooters had two wins each.

At Leos it was Travis "OH my, way too tough" Taggart leading the way as Leos 1 banged out a 15-10 win over Bunyans 1. Taggart was a perfect 5-0 with his last win coming from a 9Ball break. Rusty Jensen pitched in with four wins for Leos 1. Jody Sailer rolled in four 9Balls to help the "Bombers" cause. Leos 1 press agent Yo Saggerson said no autograph session was held due to the weather.

At the Char Bar, seasoned veteran Bill Willroth circumnavigated the pool table and bagged four wins to lead Char 1 to a 15-10 victory over Leos 3. Troy, "Big Dog" and "Husker" all had three win nights to help the aging Willroth. For Leos 3 it was Brett Mockler and Cam Nettestadt leading the way with three wins each.

At Leos, Jere "Chappy" Chapman posted a 5-0 night to propel the Leos 4 team past the Eagles 1 by a 14-11 score. Jim "Fy Daddy" Frye and Gary Prosser helped the cause with three wins each. The Eagles 1 team was lead by "Downtown" Dick Brown, who won three games and looked extremely good and quite competitive.

At the Eagles, the closest match of the night was won by Leos 2 on a Jeff "Fleet" Gilbertson 24th game victory. Leos 4 was a 13-12 road winner over the Eagles 2 shooters. Danny Doty, Gilbertson and Ryan Baedke each pulled out three wins to lead the Leos 2 team. Rod "The Bod" Tieman hearded in four 9Balls to lead the Eagles 2 effort.

Well, that just about gets it. Note: There will be a 8 ball "Scotch Doubles" random partner tourney at Leos Sports Bar and Grill on Saturday, Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. Talk to Rusty or Husker for details. Until next week, please stay warm. Thanks. MOJO.
